IMPORTANT COVID-19 PROTOCOL FOR GUESTS – PLEASE READ PRIOR TO VISITING

***Face coverings are required for all guests and staff over the age of 2 indoors regardless of vaccination status.***

INDOORS IN THE JOHN DREW THEATER:

Guests attending any INDOOR John Drew Theater programs must show proof of FULL vaccination. At this time, only fully vaccinated guests are permitted to attend programs in the indoor theater. All guests over the age of 2 must wear face coverings indoors, except when eating or drinking.

In order to attend programs indoors in the John Drew Theater, upon arrival guests will be responsible for displaying a completed vaccination card or official digital pass to prove full vaccination has been completed at least 14 days prior to the day of the program. Visit epass.ny.gov to download New York State’s free Excelsior Pass for seamless entry.

Guests are asked to seat themselves appropriately distanced from other audience members not in their party whenever possible. Children under the age of 12 who are not yet vaccine eligible, and under the age of 16 who have not yet been vaccinated, may accompany and be seated with a vaccinated adult. 

OUTDOORS, INCLUDING THE JOHN DREW BACKYARD THEATER:

Face coverings are optional for fully vaccinated guests and children under the age of 2 for all OUTDOOR programs with the exception of KidFEST, at which masks are required for all patrons over the age of 2 regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings are required for guests who are not fully vaccinated at all programs at Guild Hall including outdoors in the John Drew Backyard Theater and elsewhere on the property.

PROGRAMS INDOORS IN THE MUSEUM GALLERIES AND BOOTS LAMB:

Guests attending any seated program indoors in the galleries and Boots Lamb Education Center must show proof of FULL vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test result. Face coverings are required for all guests and staff over the age of 2 regardless of vaccination status.

ALL OTHER INDOOR SPACES:

Guests will not need to show proof of vaccination or negative test results when visiting the galleries, Boots Lamb Education Center, and Coffee Bar. Face coverings are required for all guests and staff over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, and may only be removed when eating or drinking at the Coffee Bar indoor tables. Face coverings are not required at the outdoor café tables.

Please continue to stay home if you do not feel well, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 10 days, have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days, or been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the past 10 days.

KidFEST:

ALL guests over the age of 2 years attending any KidFEST programs, indoors or out, are required to wear face coverings, regardless of vaccination status. While children under the age of 12 are unable to be vaccinated, we ask adults to model the behavior that is expected of children. Your patience and understanding is appreciated in keeping our community’s children safe. Face coverings may be removed when eating and drinking only.
