COVID-19 Safety Policy

Vineyard Theatre: COVID-19 Vaccine Policy

Last Updated: February 4, 2022

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with the safety of our members, rental tenants, stakeholders and our staff in mind; and in compliance with New York City’s Key to NYC vaccine mandate for all indoor activities, The Vineyard requires confirmation of vaccination against COVID-19 at all of our locations, effective September 1, 2021.

  • Audience members must be fully vaccinated.
  • COVID-19 safety officers will check vaccination status at the door prior to entry into the theatre.
  • Masks must be worn at all times in the building. N95/KN95 masks provide the strongest protection against COVID-19.
  • Patrons who cannot demonstrate having received a booster shot are required to wear an N95 or KN95 mask in the theatre.
  • Vineyard Theatre will provide a KN95 mask to any patron for free if needed.

Starting January 29, all eligible individuals (5 years of age and over) visiting our locations will be asked to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the time of their visit. Children age 5 and older must show proof of full vaccination upon arrival. Proof of vaccination includes your vaccination record card (paper or photo) or any digital vaccine card via an app (e.g. NY Excelsior Pass, CLEAR, NYC COVID SAFE, etc.), in addition to your photo ID.

Proof of vaccination is required for all visitors, including all guests, audience members, and rental participants in our studio and theatre.

Eligible but non-vaccinated individuals will be denied entry. We will not be accepting any medical or religious exemptions at this time.

All other existing safety measures and guidelines at our Vineyard Theatre Facilities remain in place, including but not limited to the mask requirement. This policy will be updated as necessary as the pandemic has proved its unpredictability and we reserve the right to modify this policy as we determine may be necessary in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local law or health expert derived guidance. We are working to develop the best strategy for implementing the City’s vaccine mandate, and we will continue to keep you informed about changes to our policies as we do so.

This new policy is a crucial step in reducing the risk of exposure at our locations, and we appreciate your understanding and compliance. We are doing our best to ensure the safety of all who enter our spaces or come into contact with our employees. All Vineyard Theatre staff have provided proof of vaccination in order to work in our facilities.

We will continue to make choices to uphold the highest safety standards for everyone in our space, and may update our COVID-19 protocols further in response to improving or declining public health conditions in accordance with CDC guidelines.
