COVID-19 cases are once again rising across the country because of the more contagious delta and omicron variants. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that all people wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

And a mask mandate is now in place in Milwaukee, through March 1 — making them a requirement for all concerts and performing arts events for now.

But some venues and concerts have additional requirements, including proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.
