NEW ORLEANS, LA – Starting Friday, July 30, several New Orleans music venues will require patrons to show a complete COVID-19 vaccination card or proof of a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours before entry until further notice.

Patrons are required to provide proof of documentation and a valid ID for verification. The documentation must come from the healthcare provider who performed the vaccination. Upon entry, patrons may show proof on a smartphone or a physical copy. Additionally, they are highly encouraged to remain masked, per CDC guidelines.

Please note the venues that will be applying this method as below:

- Tipitina's (Located at 501 Napoleon Ave, New Orleans)

- Maple Leaf Bar (8316 Oak St, New Orleans)

- D.b.a. (618 Frenchman St, New Orleans)

For more information on specific venues requirements, attendees may reach out to the respective businesses.

As the number of COVID cases rises in New Orleans, the music industry in the city unites to help flatten the curve. These 3 venues are encouraging other venues to join in this mission to help in slowing the spread of COVID-19, which can improve health and safety for everyone in the community. They are committed on creating a safe atmosphere for each attendee, as well as to provide an enjoyable space of livelihood for the performers, employees, and supporters of the industry.

Previously, New Orleans' DJ Soul Sister enforced proof of vaccination upon entry for her events at the Hi-Ho Lounge starting Friday, July 30. Attendees are given the option of presenting the proof through the LA Wallet app or other similar applications. The decision is made by DJ Soul Sister herself only for her events at the Hi-Ho Lounge and not related to any other events in the venue. The policy will be removed once she finds it safe to do so.
