VACCINATION POLICY+ COVID-19 UPDATE
UPDATED AUGUST 2021
Due to the recent rise in Delta variant cases, CMH is reinstating proof of vaccination and/or negative PCR test within 72 hours of entry to events at Chelsea Music Hall, effective, August 5th.
We understand that for some, vaccination requirements raise questions of accessibility and inclusivity, We are choosing to reinstate these guidelines not as a way to discriminate, but in order to create an environment of safety and comfort at our events during this complex time. Our first priority is the safety of our staff, artists, and audiences, while we intend to grow our community and continue to present the most artful, cultural, educational, and diverse variety of performances under the streets of Chelsea and Meatpacking.
If you’ve purchased tickets to an upcoming event through DICE APP, and you’re unable to complete or unwilling to comply with these guidelines up to 72 hours prior to a ticketed event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your patience with our security and staff while we do our part to keep the lights on and the curtains up, and thanks for performing your piece in conjunction with the city and state guidelines.
When you get to the venue @ 15th Street b/t Ninth and Tenth Aves., please have your ID, vax cards or proof of negative tests, and tickets out, as you take your place in line; our staff will approach; unfortunately, if you have a fever, you will not be admitted to the venue.
“N.Y.C. will require workers and customers show proof of at least one dose for indoor dining and other activities… people fully vaccinated in the state of New York, or New Yorkers vaccinated out of state, can get an Excelsior pass, which confirms vaccination against city and state records. Everyone, however, can use the city’s new app, NYC Covid Safe, because it is simply a digital photo album that stores a picture that a person takes of their own vaccination card and does not double check it against any registry. A paper card from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention… accepted, too.”
We are accepting Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, or 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than 14 days prior to an event. We are also accepting any vaccine currently recognized and approved by the CDC or WHO, including international vaccines such as Oxford/AstraZeneca: Vaxzevria, Sinopharm: BBIBP-CorV, and Sinovac: CoronaVac.
You may also enter an event if you are able to provide proof of a COVID negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event you’re attending.
Masks and social distancing are not required, however – following current CDC guidance – are strongly encouraged at this time.
CMH staff will continue to wear masks, indoors.
Valid proof of vaccination includes:
New York State Excelsior Pass (https://epass.ny.gov/home)
A CDC-issued paper vaccination card, or photo of vaccination card
Any other New York State accepted digital vaccination status app
Any officially recognized State or International digital vaccination status app Vaccination proof must match your valid ID
