Citing a backlash from many long-time attendees at the annual event that draws more than 80,000 people to the Black Rock Desert about 100 millas (160 kilómetros) north of Reno, Goodell clarified that organizers had been formulating their own guidelines on mandatory vaccinations as part of the health and safety plan they must submit to state and county officials.

We are weighing the gravity of what that does,” Goodell said. “And we know that challenges the concept of ‘radical inclusion.'

She said civic responsibility is an important part of organizersguiding principles but that they realize people in some countries haven’t had access to vaccines, nor have most children.

That’s not quite figured out yet. There are plenty of people that are challenging whether it is necessary,” ella dijo.

She said they hope to reach a decision by the end of this week and at the latest by April 30.

“En este punto, the government agencies involved in collaborating with us have been really super supportive and super helpful. They are not putting up any roadblocks. We are all looking at the resources to have to make it happen and get this done,” Goodell said.
