Brown County Music Center
Health Check & Safety Policies

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate challenges presented by the spread of COVID-19. Please keep in mind we are an independent venue here in the heart of Brown County. Our number one priority is to commit to a safe event and ensure all fans have a great experience. We gain nothing restricting admission to customers. We are continuously adapting as we learn more within the industry and as the standards continue to change. The health of our employees, patrons, artists and community is paramount. For more detail on specific questions visit our FAQ page.


What Is A Health Check?
Health Checks are safety protocols instituted by Event Organizers to minimize potential attendee and artist exposure to COVID-19. As a venue, the Brown County Music Center does NOT set or control Health Check guidelines, which is why different events you see at the venue may have different protocols. 

While specific requirements vary across events, some common measures may include but are not limited to:

  • proof of full vaccination against COVID-19;
  • proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test within 6 hours.  These tests must be done by a doctor or certified physician.

Please check the requirements of your show for event-specific detail. 

When Are Health Checks Required?
The Event Organizer (usually the artist) determines if Health Checks will be required to attend an event. In some instances, the Event Organizer may choose to exceed protocols required by public health or government agencies. We maintain partnerships with local health agencies and abide by all government guidelines. 

What To Do If You Can’t Attend Due To A Health Check
Health Check policies may change at any time. To be sure, always check our website before heading out to the show. Additionally, we are constantly updating our messaging and contacting ticket buyers with information on any show changes or requirements. 

Important notes about show exchanges and refunds:

  • We are only able to support requests for verified tickets purchased through our ticket provider: Ticketmaster.
  • If you purchased your ticket through a ticket broker, reseller, Facebook Marketplace, Venmo, Criagslist, Snapchat, FarmersOnly, or your local 7-11, etc. – We are not able to help you. You must go back to your point of purchase. 
  • We are not able to offer any refunds for credits after a show has already occurred.  

How We Communicate Health Checks
Health Check requirements are communicated to customers, and potential customers, on a show-by-show basis via the following methods:

  • Indicator on show listing on our websites
  • Requirements listed on ticketing purchase pages on Ticketmaster
  • Detailed requirements posted on official Facebook event listings
  • Pre-show emails with “Know Before You Go” sent to all advance ticket buyers
  • Policy and show update emails sent to all advance ticket buyers

Health Check Entrance Procedure

  • You will be greeted by a member of our team PRIOR to entering the line or accessing the box office.
  • Show your proof of compliance (vaccination card and/or negative COVID-19 test result);
  • Please do not wait until you are in line to gather your documentation. If you are not ready you will be asked to step aside until you are ready, so we may let other guests through.  

Venue Rules 

  • Bullying of other customers or our staff is not tolerated.
  • Out of respect to our guests who choose to wear a mask, we will remove anyone from the premises (without refunds) for harassing other guests or making rude/political comments.

  • Any patron found not in compliance will be denied admission and / or removed from the venue without a refund.
