The Paramount in Huntington has announced that, starting Oct. 4, it will be adhering to Live Nation’s new COVID-19 regulations and will require showing proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours to gain admission to events.
The venue issued a statement via its website to ticket holders on Wednesday.
"In attending an event at The Paramount, you certify and attest that you, and all individuals in your party attending the event, will follow the below regulations: All fans will provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours prior to entering the venue OR must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 2 weeks after final dose) and provide printed proof of COVID-19 immunization with an appropriate ID matching the name on your documentation," the statement read. "Unvaccinated fans under 12 years of age will be required to take a COVID-19 diagnostic test within 72-hours before the event and will provide proof of negative result prior to entering the venue.
"These confirmations will apply to all members of your party before they are allowed to enter the event and to any users of the tickets purchased by you," the statement continued. "Free COVID-19 testing may be found online through the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. The Paramount encourages all guests to wear a mask for the duration of the event. All Paramount staff are fully vaccinated and required to wear masks during all events. Some guidelines may differ on a show-by-show basis per artist request."
Live Nation announced this policy last week for all its venues including Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater, which ends its 2021 series on Oct. 2 with Jonas Brothers, and NYCB Theatre at Westbury. Upcoming Paramount concerts where the protocols will be enforced include Brian Wilson on Oct. 5, and Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo on Oct. 9.
