Covid-19 Policy

Updated January 18, 2023

This page will be updated regularly with information on our onsite health and safety protocols for this event. Our attendees’ health and safety remain our top priority as we continue to monitor COVID-19 and look to venue, local, state, CDC, and WHO guidelines to make the best and most informed decisions around onsite safety and requirements.



By attending Gateway Fur Meet 2023, our attendees understand that there is still a risk of pathogen spread.  Although our event and venues will do everything in our power to help decrease the possibility of contagions, attendees will indemnify the event and venues and cannot hold them accountable for possible illness.

  • Proof of a negative PCR test or other lab test administered on or after Friday, March 3rd, 2023,

  • Proof of Vaccination (Minimum Two Shots or One if Johnson & Johnson)


This requirement is for both adults and children above 5 years of age.


Booster shots are not required to be considered to be fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines, but we heavily recommend getting one.


Acceptable Proof of Vaccination:

  • CDC Card

  • Clear photocopy of CDC Card

  • Clear photo or scan (digital or physical) of CDC Card

  • Digital Vaccination Record provided from a state, government or reputable business, medical practice, or pharmacy

Proof of Vaccination must show the following:

  • Attendee’s legal name and DOB matching a state-issued photo ID

  • Vaccine information, such as brand, location of where administered and date administered



Face masks are OPTIONAL for all guests. We will not be enforcing masks in any location.


Can we use an “at home” test?
  No, a laboratory test is required for entry.

Will we need the actual card proving vaccine or would a picture be sufficient?
  A picture is sufficient as long as it appears unaltered and the name on the card matches a legal ID.


I only have one Moderna or Pfizer shot, do I need to take a lab test for entry?
  Yes, we are only allowing those that are Fully Vaccinated to bypass our negative lab test requirement. Per CDC guidelines:

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or

  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.


Would it be viable for me to have a test done a day sooner than March 4th?
  No proof of tests will be accepted that are time stamped on or before March 2rd, 2023.


What about minors/children?
  As per CDC guidelines, a vaccine can be administered at or above age 5. No test will be required for anyone under 5 years of age.
