The Minnesota Orchestra is the latest organization to require proof of full vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test to attend events. In a statement the orchestra said that effective Sept. 20, the policy applies to all people entering Orchestra Hall, including audience members, musicians, guest artists, staff and volunteers. Children under 12 are welcome, but only with a recent negative test. Masks also must be worn in Orchestra Hall. Ticketholders unable to adhere to the policy may apply for a refund.
