JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WAVE) - If you are planning to attend this year’s Abbey Road on the River, you’ll need to show some proof of your COVID-19 status.

Organizers of the Labor Day Weekend event announced today that attendees will need to have proof they are fully COVID-19 vaccinated or have had a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of attending.

In a statement, event organizers say 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.”

While all festival events and concerts will be held outdoors for the first time, the requirement also extends to all festival staff and performing bands.

At the current time, wearing of masks will not be a requirement for fully vaccinated festival patrons in outdoor spaces, but their use is encouraged when in a congregated area. Masks are encouraged for children 12 and under while on the playground or in crowded areas.

The number of hand sanitizer and hand washing stations at the venue will be increased and crews will do frequent cleanings in high touch areas.
