Covid Requirements Released for Oscars Ceremony fetchpriority=

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has released some more information on their Covid testing requirements for this weekend's ceremony.

In a letter that was sent to guests, the following updates were made to the guidelines:

- Those who tested positive for COVID-19 and are within a zero to five-day window from the date of their first positive test are not permitted to attend under any circumstances.
- Those who tested positive for COVID-19 and are within a six to ten-day window from the date of their first positive test are required to provide proof of negative results from two verified PCR, Lucira or Cue Health COVID-19 tests. These tests may not be taken on the same day and must be administered by a verified, medically trained professional.
- The ten-day window is strictly determined by the date and time of the first positive test (antigen or PCR) from a printed lab report and is not based on a doctor's note or start of symptoms. If you tested positive after March 17, 2022 at 1pm PT, you are considered within the ten-day window.
- If you are outside the ten-day window (you tested positive before March 17, 2022, at 1pm PT) and have tested positive on your PCR test taken on March 24, you must provide proof of negative results from a medically supervised antigen test taken on March 26 or March 27.

Presenters and performers will not be required to show proof of vaccination but will be required to have two negative PCR Tests. Nominees and guests will have to show proof of vaccination. 

On April 1, all requirements will be lifted in accordance with the state's guidelines.

The 94th Oscars will air live on ABC on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
