Due to the recent surge of the more contagious COVID-19 Delta variant in our county, Basilica Hudson, like many event venues in our state, is requiring all indoor event attendees to show proof of vaccination upon entry and to wear masks when indoors.
We are inspired by these perfectly expressed sentiments from the team at Elsewhere, and share them with you now:
“While a lot is still unclear about this new variant, the single most consistent pattern is that the vaccine works remarkably well at preventing severe sickness and hospitalization due to COVID – which is something we want for our entire community.
We understand that for some, vaccination requirements raise questions of accessibility and inclusivity, topics which are very important to us. We are choosing to reinstate these guidelines not as a way to discriminate, but in order to create an environment of safety and comfort at our events during this complex time. During this transition period on the road back to normalcy, our first priority is the safety of our staff, artists, and audiences.
We are as eager as our audiences to get back to the good old days, so thank you for doing your part in getting us over the top.”
We at Basilica Hudson are a very small team, and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to adapt to new circumstances and state/federal recommendations for event venues.
We are confident in our ability to bring innovative programming to the City of Hudson, and appreciate our community’s ongoing support.
