BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The Bakersfield Fox Theater announced Monday that they are joining the likes of Mechanics Bank Arena and dropping their COVID-19 mandates to attend events.

"In accordance with the California Department of Health, providing proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is no longer required to attend events," said a statement released by the Fox Theater. "Verification of a negative test or vaccination status will only be required at the Historic Bakersfield Fox Theater if requested by an artist's management."
