Burning Man may introduce mandatory vaccinations for visitors

The organizers of Burning Man previously stated that vaccinations would be mandatory, but have since faced huge criticism from fans of the festival.

In her video blog this month, the Burning Man CEO mistakenly said that the state of Nevada, where Burning Man is held, requires that major event attendees be vaccinated.

In the next video blog on the Burning Man site, Marian Goodell dropped the claim, saying she "misspoke".

“Health and safety of our gathering of people is the number one priority, period, straight up. So actually requiring vaccines is the way we’re leading with that health and safety plan,” she also said.

A decision will be made at the end of this month. Stay tuned for more information from the festival.
