Abbey Road on the River to Require Vaccination or Negative Covid Test
Jeffersonville, IN (August 10, 2021) – Organizers of Abbey Road on the River have announced this year’s festival held Labor Day weekend will require attendees to show proof of full Covid-19 vaccination or a negative Covid test obtained within 72 hours of attending the event.
The announcement comes after months of closely monitoring other live entertainment events and music festivals and weeks of planning and consulting with City and health officials. Organizers will continue to evaluate the situation, with the health and safety of patrons being the number one priority. All festival staff and performing bands will also be required to show vaccination or negative Covid test as well.
“After having to cancel the festival three times due to Covid, we really didn’t want to do that again, especially with such a practical solution available to us,” says event producer Gary Jacob. “We believe this is the best way to present the event safely, and give our fans, staff, and bands confidence that we are doing everything we can to protect them and their families. We understand that while not everybody can be vaccinated, everybody can be safely tested and if it’s important enough to come to our festival, please get tested. They are readily available and often free.”
This year for the first time, all festival events and concerts will be held outdoors. At this time, AROTR is not requiring masks be worn by fully vaccinated patrons in outdoor spaces at the festival, but masks are encouraged while in congregated areas. Kids 12 and under are encouraged to wear masks on the playground or in crowded areas. Increased hand sanitizer and hand washing stations will be on-site, and cleaning crews will do frequent cleanings in high touch areas.
