COVID-19 Info

Summit organizers require face masks to be worn at indoor events, like the Monday night Shakespeare Festival show and Tuesday morning main stage event. Face masks will be provided in attendee bags. Because current COVID cases counts and transmission levels are high, we strongly encourage COVID vaccines and wearing face masks while engaging in Summit activities.

Summit organizers anticipate hosting a vaccination clinic in conjunction with the event, and we are working with the local health department to plan accordingly.
