Charlotte’s Neighborhood Theatre announced that they will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test to enter events. The new policy goes into effect Friday. According to the venue, it was a difficult decision but one they feel is necessary to keep their doors open as case numbers continue to rise.

Guests will need to show proof of vaccination- the last of which must be at least 14 days before the event. Proof can be in the form of a physical vaccine card or a photo of the card. The name on the card must match the patron’s ID. If you are not able to provide a card or haven’t been vaccinated you must show proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours of the show. Those in attendance are strongly encouraged to wear a mask at events when they are not drinking.

The Neighborhood Theatre is not the only local venue requiring proof of vaccination. LiveNation  is requiring the same thing for it’s local venues including PNC Music Pavilion, Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheater, The Fillmore, and The Underground.
