ATX TV Festival Health & Safety Policy

The safety and health of the ATX TV Community is our top priority.

Based on public health guidelines, we have implemented various health and safety measures to provide all in attendance with the safest experience possible. The COVID-19 Community Level for the City of Austin, as defined by the CDC, is currently LOW.

ATX TV Festival requires attendees to be fully vaccinated (either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of FDA or WHO authorized, or emergency use authorized, double-dosed vaccines or single-dose vaccine), up to date on vaccines (received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible), OR provide a negative COVID-19 test that was taken within 72 hours of coming on-site.

You will be asked for proof of vaccination or negative test at ATX TV Festival Registration in order to receive your ATX TV Festival Credential. All forms of proof must match your ID, and you can bring/show:

Masks are encouraged, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public spaces, and in some smaller indoor venues masks may be required for entry, so please make sure to have a mask handy at all times. Attendees should continue to wash their hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer, and be mindful of social distancing when possible.

If you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 prior to the Festival, please contact tv@atxfestival.com regarding your ATX TV Festival Credentials and make plans to stay home.

When you pick up your ATX TV Festival Credentials at Registration, you will sign a card acknowledging that you understand and agree to this Health & Safety Policy. By attending any in person ATX TV Festival Season 11 screenings, panels, or events, you knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks related to the exposure to COVID-19 and agree that you will not hold ATX TV liable for any illness that may result.
