Masks weren't required, but social distancing was encouraged.

Phish announced a stricter policy for their remaining summer and fall tour dates.

It comes as Atlantic City prepares for a busy week of events.

Among those events is the Atlantic City Air Show. Practice will take place Tuesday and the show is scheduled for Wednesday.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will debut a new demonstration for the first time in more than 40 years.

Organizers say that's because the pandemic canceled a majority of the 2020 season, giving the team time to enhance their maneuvers.
