UPDATED HEALTH POLICY FOR TRUE/FALSE FILM FEST

Putting on a safe and healthy True/False Film Fest is one of our top priorities. We are working closely with our operations team and health advisors to create a Fest that is accessible and safe for all patrons. We will be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test for all attendees at the 2022 Fest, as well as masking in most situations; please see below for more details on both. We are also considering additional testing touch points; we will determine testing requirements by January 19, 2022. As conditions change, protocols may need to be adjusted; we will inform the public of any adjustments, changes, or additions to our protocols, but please be sure to check our website or reach out with questions as you prepare to attend True/False 2022.

Here are the current measures and guidelines in place for True/False 2022:

Full COVID-19 Vaccination Required
The True/False Film Fest will require everyone (patrons, staff, volunteers, guests…) ages 5 and up to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide printed proof of a negative COVID-19 test using either a PCR test taken within 72 hours of the day(s) attending the Fest or a rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours of the day(s) of attending the Fest. Either of these must be administered by a healthcare or pharmacy provider. Self-administered at-home tests will not be accepted. More information about when and where to provide proof of vaccination or negative test will be shared closer to the Fest.
We are using the CDC’s definition of “fully vaccinated.” The CDC’s definition as of February 17, 2022, is the definition we will use in determining whether an individual is fully vaccinated; please be aware that the CDC’s definition may change between the time of this announcement and February 17, 2022. If/when the definition changes, this announcement’s details will be updated accordingly.

As of December 20, 2021, fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC as:

  • 2 weeks after the 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.

Booster shots are highly encouraged for patrons attending the Fest.

Masks
Masks will be required for everyone at all of True/False’s indoor spaces regardless of vaccination status. During our outdoor events, the same COVID vaccination policy will be in place; however, masks are optional. We encourage patrons to mask to their comfort level when outside.
