First Avenue, one of Minnesota's most popular concert venues, announced Monday you'll have to show proof of either full Covid-19 vaccination or negative Covid-19 test from the past 72 hours to get in. That goes for the associated venues, too.

What Will Count As Proof of Vaccination?

  • First Ave says the proof of Covid vaccination could be the actual card from your medical team or a photo of the card that matches your ID.
  • The final vax of the series must have been at least 14 days before you try to get in.
  • The negative Covid-19 test proof can be a print out or a digital test result, as long as it matches your ID (so if you're a Mayo patient, you could show them the test result on the Mayo Portal, and your ID and you're good).

  • Negative Covid test results work for 12 and under and for people who "have a medical condition or closely held religious beliefs that prevents vaccination."
  • They're also asking you to mask up.
