COVID-19 Health & Safety Policies

Vaccination Policy

BIMA requires proof of full vaccination for all visitors 12 years of age and older for entry to any indoor facilities. All guests 5 years of age and older must wear masks at all times when inside the Museum (see mask policy below).

Per the CDC, “fully vaccinated” means the event date must be at least fourteen days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least fourteen days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

Documentation of vaccination status must be shown to the BIMA representative upon entry to the museum and must be available upon request at any time during the event. BIMA does not accept religious or medical waivers at this time.

The following are acceptable as proof of vaccination:

  • Physical vaccination card with government issued I.D., OR
  • Photo of vaccination card as a separate paper document with government issued I.D., OR
  • Photo of vaccination card stored on phone or other electronic device with government issued I.D., OR
  • Copy of your immunization records from a state health department-approved site with government issued I.D., OR
  • Negative COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test taken in the last 72 hours

Vaccination proof should include name of vaccinated person matching patron, type of vaccine, and date of last vaccine administered. Matching valid ID is required.
