CHI Health Center to offer on-site COVID testing ahead of tonight's Eagles concert

From concerts to championships, the CHI Health Center has hosted it all.

People planning to attend The Eagles concert at the CHI Health Center Omaha Tuesday night can get a COVID-19 test at the north doors of the venue.

Attendees will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test to be admitted to the show.

The Eagles concert on Sept. 28 will require people attending to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of coming to the CHI Health Center. Photographed outside the CHI Health Center in Omaha on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.

The testing, which is being offered by Nomi Health, will begin at 5 p.m. Results will be provided within 15 to 20 minutes of the test, but those who want to get tested at the venue should plan to arrive as early as possible, said Kristyna Engdahl, director of communications for the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority, which operates the CHI Center.

The concert will begin at 8 p.m. The doors will open at 6 p.m.

The concert will be the first time since the pandemic began that vaccination or proof of a negative test will be required to attend an event in the CHI Health Center, Engdahl said.

Proof of vaccination means attendees will be asked to provide their vaccination card showing they are two weeks past their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks past their single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Concert-goers can present their original vaccination card, a printed or digital copy of the vaccination card, or printed proof of immunization.

A negative test must be obtained within 48 hours of the show, Engdahl said.  At-home test results will not be accepted.

The decision to require proof was made at the request of the band and was not a MECA decision, Engdahl added.
