The Broadway League announced that owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theaters in New York City have extended measures for mask and vaccine requirements through April 30. The league had previously announced that this would be an agreement until February 28. Masks will continue to be required for audiences in theaters unless actively eating or drinking in designated locations.
Broadway League extended safety measures
These vaccine requirements state that on the day of the Broadway show, guests must have at least 14 days after the second dose of two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after their single dose of an approved single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 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.
