Broadway Shows Require All Patrons To Show a Vaccine Card and Wear a Mask. Tickets Will Be Refunded If Patrons Cannot Comply
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
All Broadway theatres have established COVID-19 safety measures including, but not limited to, a requirement to show proof of being fully vaccinated within at least 14 days of the show and a requirement to wear a mask at all times inside the theatre regardless of vaccination status. Children under 12 cannot go to a Broadway show yet as they are not allowed to have the vaccine.
Forms of Proof of Vaccination - Paper and Approved Vaccine Passports
- A genuine vaccine card with CDC logo
- NY Excelsior mobile phone app QR code
- NYC Covid Safe app QR code
Invalid Forms of Proof of Vaccination - Including Non-Approved Vaccine Passports
- A photo on your phone of your vaccine card
- A physical copy of your vaccine card
- A fake vaccine card
- Clear Health Pass
- IATA Travel Pass
Negative Test No Longer Accepted
Proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the performance is no longer acceptable. The NYC Mayor is erring on the side of caution as many Broadway theatres have terrible air management and seats are very close to each other. The Mayor also believes that the vaccine does not stop the spread of the virus, just lessens the symptoms and reduces hospitalization.
If any performance is cancelled, ticket buyers will receive a notification of cancellation and will be issued a full refund for the ticket purchase.
Unable To Meet COVID-19 Requirements?
If patrons cannot comply with the ever-changing list of government COVID-19 requirements your tickets will need to be cancelled. You will receive a notification of cancellation and issued a full refund for your purchase.
Broadway Producers Attempt to Avoid Lawsuits If Patrons Get Infected With COVID
All patrons must agree that everyone who enters the theatre will need to comply with the most current COVID-19 measures on the day of the performance and may still get infected with COVID-19, even with all the safeguards in place. The only true safeguard is to not attend any Broadway show at all.
Fake Vaccination Cards
Any attempt to use a fake vaccination card will be reported to the Police. Users will be subject to arrest and prosecution, as this is now a Federal offense,
The use of a fake vaccination card is a violation of Federal Code 8 U.S.C. § 1343, making false statements related to health case. It is also a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1035, for wire fraud. If convicted, fake vaccine card users can face a maximum statutory prison sentence of 20 years for the wire fraud charge and 5 years for the false statements charge. In addition, each charge carries a maximum $250,000 fine and 3 years of supervised release. Although, no one in the United States has yet been prosecuted for using a fake vaccination card.
Any sentence following any potential conviction would be imposed by the court after consideration of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing the imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553.
