Concert Health & Safety Plan

The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra presents our concert health and safety plan for audiences

To ensure the safety of our audiences and musicians, the BSO will require attendees to wear a fitted mask, covering their mouth and nose, for the duration of the time they are in the Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center. 

All of our musicians are fully vaccinated, and we are asking our audience to do the same. To ensure the safest possible experience for our indoor concert, we will require proof of full vaccination (two weeks past the final shot), or a negative COVID PCR test from the last 72 hours prior to entrance. Prior to entering the lobby, guests should be prepared to show verification. 

Verification of vaccination can be done in three ways:

  1. By displaying a physical vaccination card, or showing a photo of the vaccination card on your phone, with accompanying photo ID.
  2. By using the Bindle app, a secure wallet for your health records, and an easy way to privately and securely share your COVID health status with others (download the app to your phone, upload your vaccination card and create your “Entry Pass” for concert: BSO @ MN Masonic Heritage Center. (THIS WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER SEPTEMBER 30)
  3. By using the Docket.care app, which draws immunization records from the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection.
    1. If you received one or more vaccinations in a different state, please visit IIS Immunization Records by State. 

Children and adults who are not eligible for vaccination at this time are welcome at BSO concerts with proof of a negative test result. If you are providing proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, the test must be taken within 72 hours prior to concert start time (Thursday, November 18, after 3 p.m.).

Verification of negative COVID-19 PCR tests can be done in two ways:

  1. By displaying a physical vaccination card, or showing a photo on your phone with accompanying photo ID
  2. By using the Bindle app, a secure wallet for your health records, and an easy way to privately and securely share your COVID health status with others (download the app to your phone, upload your test results and create your “Entry Pass” for concerts by searching for the venue: BSO @ MN Masonic Heritage Center.

Free testing locations and at home testing kits are available statewide. To order a kit or find a site near you, visit the Minnesota testing site directory.

Thank you for your participation in keeping our audiences and musicians safe, and helping us keep the music playing!
