The Broadway League announced that all 41 Broadway theaters in New York City have extended their current mask requirements for audience members until at least May 31.
Broadway League has extended the mask requirements
However, after April 30, many Broadway houses will no longer check vaccination status. Theater-goers should consult the show’s website or point of sale for information on certifying the vaccination requirements for the Broadway show (or shows) they will be attending.
Viewer blocking protocols for June and beyond will be announced in May. The Broadway League is the national trade association for the Broadway industry. The alliance’s more than 700 members. They include theater owners and operators, producers, hosts, and executives in nearly 200 markets in North America and internationally.
Any guests who have their last dose of vaccine (excluding booster doses) less than 14 days before the show date must also show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test or a negative COVID-19 antigen test within 72 hours. Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider who administered the vaccination.
Beginning January 29, guests five and older will be required to receive an FDA- or WHO-authorized vaccine. Guests between the ages of 5 and 11 may enter the theater only if accompanied by an adult. The adult needs to meet the theater’s vaccination requirements. Guests 18 years of age and older must show a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. For international guests, any “mix-and-match” combination of two doses of FDA- or WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccines is acceptable.
