*As we return to live, in-person events, our main goal is to create and safe environment for everyone to enjoy this year's Paderewski Festival. When planning the concert lineup earlier this Fall, we hoped to be much further along in terms of safely controlling the virus. Unfortunately, the current situation has made it necessary to institute the following health and safety protocols for all Paderewski Festival attendees:

1. Proof of vaccination for all eligible individuals with either a vaccine card, digital record, or a completed negative Covid test within three (3) days of the Festival concert dates will be required of all performers, audience members, volunteers and staff. This requirement does not apply to children under 12 years of age. Guests meeting these requirements will have access to all Festival venues at all times.

2. Hand sanitizer will be provided in high traffic areas, but we highly recommend having your own supply of disinfectant for personal use, as needed.

3. Face masks must be worn covering the nose and mouth at all indoor events. Exceptions to this requirement will be made only when consuming food or alcoholic beverages. The Festival staff will provide face masks for those who my need them.

Please note that these policies are subject to change as the California health and safety landscape continues to shift daily. Regardless of this challenge, the Paderewski Festival staff will make every effort to ensure that your Festival experience this year is highly enjoyable. Live music has a great healing potential and sharing it with audiences in a safe way this year should bring a measure of normalcy that all of us have missed during the past 18 months. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles and sharing with you many great and memorable moments together.
