THIS WAS RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 17th. (Originally scheduled for Feb. 27 at 2pm) at the San Diego Civic Theater. Sing & dance as you journey into the sea. Geared towards ages 0-5. Masks are required for everyone regardless of vaccination status, proof of vaccination or a negative *Covid test is required for entry. COST: $33+. Free for under 2. More info here

*See website for Covid testing info. They will have an on-site Covid testing station for $40, get there early enough for lines and to get results.

"Generally speaking here" for most other venues from what I've heard, you can do an at-home Covid test as long as it has an app or email feature that you can show as proof; the actual test stick or a photo will not suffice. You can also go to an in-person testing site, as long as you get your emailed results in the required time-frame. Currently, testing is only required for ages 2 and up; ages under 2 do not have to show proof of negative test. Negative tests are only required if you don't have a fully vaccinated card to show. (Please consult website or call the venue directly for specific information.)

For all other venue information, please consult their website for info, but it's generally best to call or email them directly with your specific questions.
