MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Museum of Natural History wants to make sure their visitors aren’t going extinct like its dragons on display.
People who are planning on visiting the museum for the Dragon Festival will have to provide a negative COVID test or proof of full vaccination. Visitors must present a completed paper or digital vaccination record that shows the last shot administered at least 14 days prior to the event, or a negative COVID test that was taken within 72 hours prior to the event for those 12 and older.
The museum will also recommend that visitors wear masks inside and while interacting with staff and vendors.
Organizers say this is to ensure that all guests, vendors, performers, and staff are safe.
The Dragon Festival is set for Oct. 15 and 16. For additional information, visit the Dragon Festival website.
