LAWRENCE (WDAF) – A popular concert hall in Lawrence has decided to take strict precautions to ensure the safety of guests and performers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Liberty Hall announced on Wednesday that it would begin requiring customers and staff to show proof of full vaccination to enter the facility for any live event. A full vaccination means it has been at least two weeks since your Johnson and Johnson was injected, or two weeks after the second injection of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Liberty Hall said it made the decision due to the rapid spread of the Delta variant and the increase in the total number of COVID-19 cases.
“The live events industry has just come out of its worst year on record.” Dean Edington, general manager of Liberty Hall, said. “Many famous (and infamous) places have not made it out alive and may never reopen. Fortunately, the Hall survived thanks to the sheer will of the staff and if we can’t stop this thing, it will be for naught.
The site said each person must present a vaccination card and corresponding ID to enter the building. Proof of vaccination can be a physical hard copy or a snapshot to your mobile device, along with a corresponding photo ID.
Politics took effect immediately and will be in place for the foreseeable future, according to Liberty Hall.
The vaccination policy will be applied for the first time on August 22 for the concert “Between the buried and me”.
Le Hall said full refunds would be given to anyone who purchased tickets to the show but could not attend due to the new vaccination requirement.
