Some big news for today, including an Update to the Constellation COVID-19 Policy and Lightning Round ticket announcement! 

The update to the COVID-19 Policy is in regards to newly-released bivalent booster

CDC guidance changed this week, therefore all attendees who are eligible for the updated bivalent booster will be required to get said booster before they are admitted to the event. 

At this time, we do not anticipate issues with availability of the updated bivalent booster, but please try to do this sooner rather than later to avoid any complications leading up to the event. 

In other news, registration for the Lightning Round of tickets + car passes opens today. Similar to the Main Sale, attendees will need to pre-register in order to be able to purchase a ticket. 

Available tickets will be raffled to those who register in the Lightning Round, same as the Main Sale. 

We do ask that only those who need to purchase tickets and/or a car pass for themselves register, so that we can get an accurate idea of demand and not dilute the lottery pool.

Don't forget to scroll down and check out the changes to Gate Hours!  It's a long drive, so plan ahead and don't miss the gate closure at 4pm Saturday

The Constellation 2022 COVID Policy has been revised based on the updated CDC Guidance published on 9/2/2022
TL;DR - Attendees who are eligible to receive the updated Bivalent booster must receive said booster in order to attend. 

You are eligible for a Bivalent booster dose if you are:
12+ and it has been: 

2 months since your last dose of Pfizer or Moderna

(second dose, third dose, or booster dose) 
2 months since your initial dose of Johnson & Johnson.

= Bivalent Booster Required

You are eligible for a monovalent (original) booster dose if you are:

5-11 years of age and it has been:

5 months after your last dose of Pfizer or Moderna (second dose or third dose if immunocompromised)

= Monovalent (original) booster required

According to the CDC, you are considered “up-to-date” immediately after you have received the most recent booster recommended for you, so you are able to get the updated bivalent booster any time prior to admission to the event. 

However, we HIGHLY encourage everyone to schedule their boosters ASAP in order to reduce any potential complications leading up to the event. 

More information on the policy, what it means, and why we chose it can be found on our website here: COVID-19 Policy 

See the COVID-19 Policy on the website for VACCINATION CUT OFF DATES!

Participants will have 72 hours to purchase their tickets once the email goes out.
Notifications for Lightning Round ticket purchases begin Thursday September 15, 2022.

In order to register, you must provide your full, legal first and last name, email, and zip/postal code, as well as agree to the COVID-19 Policy. Please only register once per person; duplicate registrations will be deleted. 

See the website for general Information about the ticketing process, “Read Before Purchasing” and Dates and Deadlines for specific details. 

In the meantime, the PDF/Constellation Tickets and Rideshare Facebook group is a great place to transfer, buy, and sell tickets. Remember! Tickets are to be sold at face value only! Tickets sold over face value are invalidated and sellers are subject to a Conduct review
