NOW: Summerfest to require proof of vaccination or negative Covid test

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test result will be required to attend Summerfest 2021, including the Wednesday Weekend Preview concerts held at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater.

Summerfest says the announcement is being made with the support of the City of Milwaukee Health Department.

Upon entry at any gate, all attendees will be asked to show a valid COVID-19 vaccination card or proof of a negative test. An original vaccination card, a printed copy of a valid vaccination card, or negative test will be accepted.

They will also accept digital forms, such as a screen shot or photo, on a phone. For any vaccine documentation in reprinted form, like a phone screenshot, the entire front of the vaccination card must be visible, or it will not be accepted.

For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 72 hours (3 days) of attending the festival.

Local testing information is available HERE. Per current CDC guidelines, masks are recommended for indoor spaces, including the Summerfest Store, First Aid stations and restrooms.

If an individual is unvaccinated, it is recommended that a mask be worn when attending large gatherings. Children under 12 will be required to wear a mask.
