COVID-19 Updates

Updated as of January 13, 2022

COVID-19 Booster Requirement  

To ensure the safety of our community, we are expanding our COVID-19 vaccination requirement to include a booster requirement for those eligible in accordance with CDC guidelines, effective March 1, 2022. Learn more about the CDC guidelines on booster eligibility.

As a reminder, proof of vaccination is currently required for all visitors to The Pershing Square Signature Center. Additionally, masks are required to enter and must always be worn, except for when actively eating or drinking.

Prior to March 1, our friends at The New Group will be presenting Black No More in The Irene Diamond Stage. If you will be attending, you may visit The New Group’s website to review their COVID-19 audience requirements.

Vaccination Requirement 

Guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine to attend a performance and must show proof of vaccination with valid ID at the time of entry into the theatre. All staff are currently required to be fully vaccinated with a booster and are subject to additional onsite testing protocols. 

“Fully vaccinated” means the performance date you are attending must be:  
at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or  
at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID-19 vaccine.  

Effective March 1, "fully vaccinated" includes having received a booster shot. Those individuals not eligible to receive a booster until after March 1 will be given one month to do so after the time as which they are eligible to receive a booster under CDC guidelines. For example, if you received your second Moderna vaccination on October 15, 2021, you are not eligible to receive a booster until March 15, 2022. Accordingly, you have until April 15, 2022 to receive your booster in order to be admitted into the Center. Read more on booster eligibility in the CDC guidelines

Eligible proof of vaccination must include: 

  • Personal identifiers that match the personal identifiers on valid ID. 
  • Name of official source issuing the record (e.g., public health agency, government agency, or other authorized vaccine provider) 
  • Vaccine manufacturer and date(s) of vaccination 


The only exception to the above will be guests under the age of 12, or those who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. Guests under 12 and those who need reasonable accommodation due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief must provide at least one of the following: negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time. 

Masks Required 

Masks are be required to enter the Center and must always be worn, with the exception of when actively eating or drinking. Acceptable masks include cloth masks with 2-3 layers of fabric, surgical masks, KN95, and N95 masks. Masks should fit the face and create a tight seal to prevent air from entering or escaping around the sides. Face coverings that do not meet these requirements, such as bandanas, gaiters, and scarves will not be accepted. Those who do not have a mask will be provided with one. Those who refuse to wear a mask will be denied entry and will not be entitled to a refund. 

Food & Drink 

The Signature Café will be open for concessions during performances selling a select menu of pre-packaged food, snacks and drinks before the show and during intermission. We ask that all food be consumed while seated at a table in the lobby.  

Masks may only be removed while actively eating and drinking. No outside food or drink is permitted at the Center, except for bottled water and personal water bottles.  

No food is permitted in the theater. Water and Signature Café drinks are permitted in the theater. Masks may only be removed briefly in the theater to drink.

Early arrival for performances will be limited to one hour prior to performance time. Audience members must wait outside until one hour prior to performance time and until they have been cleared for entry according to the vaccination policy. Please prepare for inclement weather.
