April brings Easter, Ramadan, Passover, and a social calendar packed with spring break travel plans and events like the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals. That raises concerns for event spaces and the promoters who arrange events.
After dropping from record highs prevalent during last winter, the number of newly reported
coronavirus infections have risen in some parts of the state, including Los Angeles.
The numbers remain relatively low, and officials say it is uncertain when California will see
another significant increase.
California Relaxes Coronavirus Mask Mandates
California has rescinded the requirement that people show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend indoor events, yet, masks are still strongly recommended at mega-events.
While the state has dropped the requirement, vaccination verification and pre-entry negative test results are still strongly recommended by the state. No indication that officials plan to reinstate the mandates lifted earlier this year.
In Terms of Safety, Smaller, Privately-Owned Event Spaces Prevail
Concert promoter Goldenvoice has already dropped all COVID-19 safety measures for the
Coachella festival in Indio, California.
Similarly, ticketed guests are not required to show proof of vaccination to enter the Crypto.com Arena in Downtown Los Angeles or the Microsoft Theater.
Privately-owned venues may require guests to show proof of vaccination, so check the event details before heading out.
