HEALTH & SAFETY

HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY

The safety of all guests & festival attendees is our primary priority.

As you move across the festival site please make note of your nearest Emergency Exits.

In the event of an emergency, you may be asked to shelter in place or evacuate.

Emergency messaging may be relayed by sources including, audio & video from the stage, app based push notification, and verbally from Public Safety entities.

If you or a friend require medical assistance, please make your way to Festival Medical, or ask a staff member for help.

See something that doesn’t seem right? Say something. Festival Guest Services and Public Safety entities are here to help.

COVID-19 POLICY

The health and safety of our fans, performers and employees is of the utmost importance to us. We will be requiring all attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of the event. Additionally, we strongly recommend that all attendees regardless of vaccination status wear masks while not actively eating or drinking.

Our Health & Safety policy has been updated in consideration for our fans, artists and event workers based on our ever-developing circumstances. The vaccination/negative test policy will be implemented as an open-ended one, with any changes or reversals informed by updates relating to infection rates, transmission data, variant developments, and local and federal regulations.

  • HOW DO I SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION WHEN I ARRIVE?

    Acceptable documentation as proof of vaccination required for entry include:

    • A physical copy of a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card issued by CDC
    • A digital copy or image of such card

    Please make sure the proofs include FRONT and BACK of the card. All details must be legible. You MUST bring a government issued photo ID that matches the details indicated on the proof.

  • WHEN IS MY LAST CHANCE TO RECEIVE THE VACCINE IN ORDER TO ATTEND SECOND SKY?

    We require that all guests presenting proof of vaccination for entry be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The last day to receive the second shot of Moderna or Pfizer, or a single dose of Johnson & Johnson is:

    • Saturday, 9/4 for Day 1 of Second Sky
    • Sunday, 9/5 for Day 2 of Second Sky
  • WHAT KIND OF TESTS WILL BE ACCEPTED?
    We will accept: a negative COVID-19 test result (molecular, PCR or antigen) that was administered by an official testing center. Tests must be taken no more than 72 hours prior to entry. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry. Test results must display name, result, and timestamp in order to be accepted. Name on the test result much match the Government issued ID of the attendee to gain entry.
  • I’M VISITING FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY WHERE OTHER COVID VACCINES ARE APPROVED FOR USE (ASTRAZENECA FOR EXAMPLE). WILL I BE ABLE TO GET IN?
    Yes, as long as you are considered fully vaccinated and provide a valid form of proof required for the entry.
  • WHEN DO I NEED TO TAKE MY COVID TEST?
    The test must be taken no earlier than 72 hours (3 days) prior to your entry into the festival grounds. Testing must be done in advance / off site in order to meet the entry requirements.
    • If attending Saturday, 9/18: Wednesday, 9/15
    • If attending Sunday, 9/19: Thursday, 9/16
  • WHERE CAN I GET A TEST NEAR OAKLAND, CA?
    You can find the locations of testing centers here.
  • WHERE CAN I GET A TEST OUTSIDE OF OAKLAND, CA?
    You can find the locations of testing centers here.
  • WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE LOST MY VACCINATION CARD?

    The first thing you should do is call the place where you got your vaccine, such as CVS, your health care provider or the county health department. They should be able to get a new copy for you. If you got two doses at two different places, try the location of your second vaccine first — they might be able to get your information for both doses. It might be helpful if you can remember the days when you got your shots, and have identification ready.

    You can also request your record through the state health department — they can get you a copy of your entire immunization record, which should include the COVID-19 vaccine. You can reach the immunization branch of California’s health department at 800-578-7889, CAIRHelpdesk@cdph.ca.gov or on the immunization webpage.

    A negative COVID-19 test result (molecular, PCR or antigen) that was administered by an official testing center will also work in place of proof of vaccination. Test results must be dated no more than 72 hours prior to entry. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry.

  • WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMEONE EXHIBITS COVID-19 SYMPTOMS AND/OR TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 DURING THE FESTIVAL?

    If a Festival Attendee seeks a COVID-19 test at the medical tent, they may receive a rapid (PCR) test; while waiting for results, they must wait in a quarantine tent. If the test is inconclusive, conduct a second test.

    If a Festival Attendee tests positive for COVID-19, then their wristband will be deactivated/cut and they must leave the Festival.

    The Festival Attendee will be encouraged to notify as many people as possible with whom he/she was in close contact with about the positive COVID-19 test.
