AUSTIN, Texas – Live music could return to Austin soon by using negative COVID-19 tests and vaccination requirements for concert-goers.
Ticketmaster’s plan is to require people who purchase a ticket to show proof they have either been vaccinated or had a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of an event. Ticket holders would need the lab they visit to send results to a third party health company, which would verify results to Ticketmaster.
