The Jonas Brothers' new vaccine and COVID test requirement for their upcoming tour is causing a stir at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel ahead of their planned show on Sept. 11.
The trio announced on Monday that as of Aug. 27, they will be requiring proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of the event to attend all their shows.
But this comes up against Mystic Lake's own COVID policies, which does not require such proof to attend a concert on its property. It has also lifted its indoor mask-wearing requirement.
The casino tweeted about this on Tuesday saying: "We are aware of the social media statement from Jonas Brothers requiring proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or vaccine to attend all shows on their tour after 8/27.
"These requirements do not align with our current protocols, developed under the guidance of SMSC (Shakopee-Mdewakanton Sioux Community) Tribal Public Health."
The casino also said that further updates regarding the show will be released at a later date on its social channels or website.
The tweets sparked a swift negative reaction from those suggesting Mystic Lake should change its policies to comply with the Jonas Brothers' concert stipulation.
About an hour after it tweeted the statement, Mystic Lake limited the ability of other users to reply to it.
The Jonas Brothers, which includes the immunocompromised Nick Jonas (who has Type 1 Diabetes) said that requiring vaccines or proof of a negative test is "the best thing we can do for our fans, our hard working crew, and the communities we’re visiting."
