Spring Sing 65 COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
AACA requires COVID-19 vaccination for attendance at all sanctioned Spring Sing 65 events. Sanctioned events include:
- Friday Evening Cocktail Party
- Saturday Concert, Cocktail Hour, Dinner, and Entertainment.
- Sunday Hymn Sing, Brunch, and Reprise
- AACA Board Meeting
Event attendees are required to self-certify at the time of online registration that they will be fully vaccinated (see the CDC definition here) at the time of the event. AACA reserves the right to request proof of vaccination at the time of registration check-in. Attendees may display proof on a smartphone or present an official vaccination card. Failure to provide proof of vaccination at the time of registration check-in may result in denied access to any or all sanctioned events and the non-refund of some or all event registration fees.
Event attendees will comply with all federal, state, and local COVID-19 rules applicable at the time of the event and will follow all COVID-19 protocols set forth by venues.
Masks will not be required of singers while performing at the Saturday concert or Sunday reprise.
AACA strongly encourages all event attendees to consider testing for COVID-19 prior to coming to Spring Sing 65, either a COVID-19 PCR test performed by a medical provider within 72 hours or a COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of arrival.
AACA strongly encourages all event attendees to mask at all times, except when eating or drinking.
AACA strongly recommends attendees to social distance and mask while traveling to and from Spring Sing 65 and while visiting the surrounding area.
AACA is first and foremost, a family. We ask that you please take every precaution to help protect the health and wellbeing of everyone in that family and of the greater community while participating in this event. Many AACA members are caretakers for high-risk individuals or are high-risk themselves. Some have children who are not eligible for vaccination. Let’s do everything we can to keep everyone safe and still have our beloved Spring Sing. Above all, be kind to one another.
While we can control what happens at Spring Sing 65 proper and will provide as safe an environment as possible, we know many of you will want to explore and experience beautiful Bar Harbor while you’re there. AACA implores all attendees to take utmost precaution while out and about to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission. This extends to guests you may be visiting or traveling with who are not actually attending Spring Sing. We want you to experience all the great hiking, shopping, site-seeing, and dining Bar Harbor and the surrounding area has to offer, but please be safe!
