Big news for the fans who are waiting for live music.
It looks like shows will be back later this year. It was confirmed by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
He said that theaters and other live entertainment venues could reopen “some time in the fall of 2021.”
Here’s the statement given according to The New York Times:
“The country will have to reach an effective level of herd immunity, which requires vaccinating from 70 percent to 85 percent of the population, before theaters and other venues will be able to reopen.
“If everything goes right, this is will occur some time in the fall of 2021.”
“So that by the time we get to the early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience.”
Fauci went on to say that if vaccine distribution succeeded, theaters with good ventilation and proper air filters might not need to place many restrictions for performances by the fall — except asking their audience members to wear masks, which he suggested could continue to be a norm for the foreseeable future.
