Broadway theaters will continue to require that all theatergoers are fully vaccinated in order to gain entry, owners and operators of the 41 Broadway houses said Monday.

The action continues a policy first announced at the end of July that required proof of fully vaccinated status via a CDC or WHO vaccination card showing an FDA or WHO approved vaccine as well as a government-issued photo ID. Theatergoers between 12 and 18 can use a school ID in lieu of one issued by government-.

Children 12 years of age or under who haven’t yet attained fully vaccinated status can show a CDC or WHO vaccination card with one dose of approved vaccine received at least 14 days before the date of the performance or a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of curtain or a negative rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance.

The policy is also in effect for all performers, theater staff, and backstage crewmembers.

Theatergoers are also required to wear face masks when in the building, except when eating or drinking.

The Broadway League, the group that represents theater owners, said that the policy would remain in force until at least February 22, 2022.
