COVID PROTOCOLS

*PLAYING IN THE SAND 2022: As COVID-19 continues to impact international travel and live events, we ask that all attendees remain mindful of their exposure risk in the weeks prior to travel. Creating a safe, comfortable experience for all guests, artists, and staff remains the highest priority for CID Presents.

With this in mind, all of the following four requirements will apply to all Playing in the Sand 2022 guests:

• Proof of COVID-19 vaccination before departure;
• Negative COVID-19 PCR test no more than 96 hours prior to check in;
• Antigen test administered at check in; AND
• Additional antigen test for departure.

BEFORE YOU GO
• Upload proof of full vaccination against COVID-19
• You’ll need to have received the 2nd Moderna, Pfizer, or AstraZeneca shot, or the single Johnson & Johnson shot at least 14 days prior to arrival
• Upload proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result
• Administered by an official testing site within 96 hours prior to check in
• Information on where to upload your vaccination card and negative PCR test will be communicated in the coming weeks.

WHILE YOU'RE HERE
• Upon arrival at Moon Palace, an antigen test will be administered at check-in. There will be no additional cost for these tests.
• Per CDC Order , airlines currently require proof of a negative COVID-19 test for entry back into the United States. This antigen test must be taken no more than 3 days prior to departure and documents must be shown prior to boarding. Please note the Moon Palace provides two departure rapid antigen tests per room at no charge. If you have more than two people in your room, there will be a surcharge of $19 per additional test. Guests will need to schedule their departure test directly with the resort. If CDC guidelines change before the event we may update this requirement in line with any new guidelines, which will be communicated to you.

We appreciate your commitment to these policies as we make every effort to keep the Playing in the Sand community healthy and safe. Throughout your stay, a number of enhanced sanitation and preventative measures will also be enforced by our friends at Moon Palace Cancún, and can be reviewed here . If you have not done so already, you should consider purchasing travel insurance. Our partners at Wanderwell may provide coverage for certain scenarios including COVID-19 related illness that might prevent you from joining us in Mexico. For details, click here .

We look forward to welcoming you to the beach in 2022! For more information please visit PlayingInTheSand.com
