COVID-19 Updates

Updated as of March 15, 2022

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 a valid ID at the time of entry into the Center. “Fully vaccinated” is defined by the CDC as has received all recommended doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine, at least two weeks after final dose in primary series. All staff are currently required to be fully vaccinated and are subject to additional onsite testing protocols. 

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. 

COVID-19 Booster  

Effective March 15, we will no longer require a COVID-19 booster shot for visitors. Full vaccination is still required to enter the Center. While we continue to recommend up to date vaccination with a booster to all staff and visitors, it is not required to enter.  Learn more about the CDC guidelines on booster eligibility.

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.
