COVID-19 Policies

For everyone’s protection and peace of mind, The York Theatre Company requires proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with an FDA or WHO-authorized vaccine for all audiences—as well as artists and staff. Please bring a form of ID and vaccination card to all York events. 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.

Starting December 14th in accordance with New York City guidelines, we will require children aged 5-11 to show proof of one vaccination dose. Starting December 27th, New Yorkers aged 12 and older will be required to show proof of two vaccine doses, instead of one, except for those who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

By purchasing a ticket to a York Theatre Company event, the patron agrees to abide by all COVID-19 safety protocols as determined by The York Theatre Company at the time of the event. This could include but is not limited to mask wearing, temperature checks, proof of vaccination, social distancing, and use of credit cards to purchase concessions and merchandise. The patron agrees to adjust any behavior as instructed by members of The York Theatre Company staff, should a staff member determine such behavior to be unsafe and request such an adjustment.

By entering a York Theatre Company event, the patron assumes all risks associated with entering a place of public gathering and voluntarily waives any and all claims and potential claims against The York Theatre Company relating to COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or that arise from or relate in any way to, however caused, the risk of exposure or actual or alleged exposure to a bacteria, virus or other pathogen capable of causing COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, in each case whether the actual or alleged circumstances giving rise to any claim or potential claim occur before, during, or after the event.
