COVID-19 Safety Policy

Vineyard Theatre: COVID-19 Vaccine Policy

Last Updated: December 8, 2021

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

To that end, 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. Starting December 14, children age 5 to 11 must show proof they have received at least one dose of a vaccine. Starting September 27, people 12 and older must show proof they have received two vaccine doses, except for those who have received the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Proof of vaccination may be provided 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 will be required for all visitors, including all rental participants active in our studio, theatre, any guests, or audience members. Ineligible persons and those claiming a medical or religious exemption will be required to provide exemption documentation and will also be required to wear a mask at all times.

Our staff will verify documentation of vaccination against COVID-19 from all eligible persons (5 years of age and over).

Eligible, non-vaccinated persons, unable to provide medical or religious exemption with documentation, will be denied entrance 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.
