COVID-19 Safety Protocols

The health and well-being of patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority - the following health and safety policy will be in effect through March 1, 2022*

FULL COVID-19 VACCINATION: will be required for patrons, as well as staff, volunteers, performers, backstage crew, and all others entering the Shubert Theatre.

IF UNVACCINATED: please bring proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time.

FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL regardless of vaccination status, while inside the building, except while actively eating or drinking. A properly worn mask completely covers the nose and mouth, is secured to the head, and fits snugly against the side of the face.

As of 1/1/22 – Children 5–11 will be required to show proof of full vaccination or negative PCR test and will be required to wear a face mask.

WHAT IS THE REQUIREMENT TO BE FULLY VACCINATED:

  • Two dose COVID-19 vaccine: patrons will have received their second dose of the vaccine at least 14 days prior to attending a performance at the Shubert.
  • Single dose COVID-19 vaccine: patrons will have received their single dose at least 14 days prior to attending a performance at the Shubert.

WHAT FORMS OF PROOF OF VACCINATION ARE ACCEPTED:

  • A physical vaccination card provided by a qualified healthcare provider or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron’s valid photo ID.
  • Proof of a negative test may be a printed or digital test result that matches the patron’s valid photo ID. 

WHY IS THIS POLICY IMPORTANT:

The decision to require vaccination reflects what is happening at venues around the country including, and led by, Broadway. Taking these steps helps ensure the safety of you, our valued patrons, our staff, and the artists, and implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

* The Shubert will continue to update and evaluate its policy based on requirements from the State of CT and City of New Haven - thank you for helping us keep the Shubert Theatre a safe and enjoyable experience for all!
