Treefort says it will go on, with vaccine proof requirement

While Treefort Music Fest is still a go this year after being canceled twice in 2020, there are some entry requirements in place for safety.

Event organizers announced that all attendees must show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of a negative PCR test within the past 48 hours. Festival-goers are also encouraged to have masks on hand as some fort venues might require them.

The new requirement comes after a recent surge of COVID-19 cases in Idaho. According to the Associated Press, coronavirus numbers are mirroring the surge last fall.

Statewide, the number of newly reported coronavirus cases each day is the highest it has been since January, according to numbers from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Treefort Music Fest is scheduled for September 22 through the 26 in Downtown Boise. For anyone planning on attending the festival that doesn’t have the vaccine or will need a COVID-19 test, you can find more information here.
