COVID-19 POLICY LETTER

Dear Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Friends, Families, and Guests:

After watching trends throughout the country and in the event industry, we are writing to advise you of COVID protocols for Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club—opening September 30, 2021.

Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club will require proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours in order to attend any and all events at our venue. In addition, masks will be highly encouraged when moving indoors – until you are seated. You have the option of removing your mask or keeping it on when seated.

You may present a physical or smartphone copy of your vaccine card.

It is with an abundance of caution that we are instituting these temporary messages so we can responsibly open our doors and offer live events. Our only goal with these measures is to create the safest environment possible for our guests, our staff, and the artists. Furthermore, you can be assured all Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club staff will be required to be vaccinated.

We will carefully follow the Federal CDC recommended protocols so that we can operate safely and responsibly. Together, we must follow these temporary safety measures in order for us to safely gather, for artists to earn a living again, for our staff to be employed, to rejuvenate our local economy, and most importantly, to connect with one another through the arts and live entertainment as both play an important role in our communities. Your cooperation with this policy will help us open successfully and not have to go to limited capacity or shut down completely in the future.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club soon!

The Jimmy’s Team
