Acceptable proof of vaccination includes a CDC issued vaccination card, the New York State Excelsior Pass, the Clear Health Pass, and the NYC COVID Safe App.

For anyone unvaccinated due to a disability or religious belief or under 5 years of age, The York will require proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the day of the event.
