NAB Show Could Implement Mask Mandate


Showing proof of a COVID-19 vaccination may be just one requirement the NAB is putting in place in order to attend the 2021 NAB Show in person come October 9 in Las Vegas.

The industry’s chief voice on Capitol Hill for broadcast TV and radio on Thursday left the possibility of a mask mandate open. It says a decision on mask requirements will be made in accordance with the CDC, the Nevada Governor, the Southern Nevada Health District and the Clark County Commission.

That decision will be made closer to the show. But, it signals the possibility that the event, even though it will prohibit unvaccinated attendees from participating, will still require mask use at all indoor events.

As stated above, proof of vaccination will be managed through CLEAR’s free mobile app and Health Pass feature or by a Vaccination Concierge Service before and during the Show.
