WHAT HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS WILL BE IN PLACE?

Kupferberg Center for the Arts is deeply committed to the health and safety of our audiences, performers, and staff. Based on current CUNY and Queens College guidelines, COVID safety protocols include vaccination verification, limitations on belongings in the theatre, proper mask usage, and more.

Specific health and safety protocols are subject to change but will be clearly communicated to ticket holders in advance of their performance. Ticket holders who do not comply with venue protocols will not be admitted.


WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT VACCINATION POLICY?

All guests to KCA events ages 5 and older must show proof that they (i) are fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO approved vaccine or (ii) have had a negative COVID-19 molecular (PCR) test performed by an accredited lab no more than 7 days prior to the visit, and must show proof of vaccination or negative test at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket.

Children under the age of 5 are permitted to enter Kupferberg Center for the Arts and are recommended to be masked.

Proof of vaccination(*) or a negative COVID-19 molecular (PCR) test must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination or PCR test.

In addition to providing proof of vaccination or negative PCR test in accordance with these protocols, all guests must present a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport (guests younger than 18 may present a school photo ID), that must match the corresponding information from the vaccine or negative PCR test document provided.

This policy is subject to change, but will be clearly communicated to event attendees in advance of their program.

(*) Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. For example:

  • Guests can display proof on a smartphone or present a physical copy of their CDC Vaccination Card or NYC Vaccination Record.
  • New York State residents, or anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccine in New York State, may present proof through the use of the Excelsior Pass (for more details, visit: https://epass.ny.gov).
  • Guests may also present proof through the use of the Clear Health Pass (for more details, visit: https://www.clearme.com/healthpass) or the NYC Covid Safe app (Download: App Store | Google Play).


WHAT IF MY PROOF-OF-VACCINATION IS NOT IN ENGLISH?

We will be accepting proof-of-vaccination for all FDA and WHO approved vaccines. If your proof-of-vaccination is not in English, please locate a Theatre manager for assistance at your time of entry.


WHAT IS YOUR MASK POLICY?

All guests are recommended to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the building, except while eating or drinking.


IS THEATRE SEATING SOCIALLY DISTANT?

All seating is currently not socially distant. Should guidance from the city, state or CDC change, we will adjust how tickets are being sold. That being said, please be considerate of your fellow audience and continue to hand sanitize and practice social distancing where possible.
