COVID-19 Event Updates
April 12, 2022
DCINY stays in regular communication with NYC Concert halls and the local health authorities as we coordinate our response to the ongoing and ever-changing situation related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are so thankful for all of the hard work and dedication from all of our participating artists, performers and VIPs and venues and look forward to our first concerts back in the Spring of 2022 after over 2 years of pause.
Current requirements for Carnegie Hall include the following (current as of April 12, 2022):
(for full details, please visit the Carnegie Hall website link above)
These health and safety protocols were put in place following continuing consultation with leading medical and public health experts in order to create the safest possible environment that we can for artists, audiences, and staff while supporting performances at the highest level.
Carnegie Hall continues its commitment to being a fully vaccinated building. Audience members coming to Carnegie Hall will be required to show proof of full vaccination with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) at least 14 days in advance of first date of entry to the building for those entering the backstage. Performing artists will need to show proof that they are also fully up to date on CDC recommended boosters. Those not yet eligible for a booster will be able to continue to enter so long as they can show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (at least two weeks have elapsed since the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or a single dose of a one-dose vaccine). We regret that at this time we are unable to welcome anyone who is not fully vaccinated and boosted.
The following guidelines are still in place:
- Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (14 days out of the last dose in the primary series) continues to be mandatory for audience, artists and any supporting staff entering the hall. Proof of a booster, while highly recommended, is no longer required for entering the hall.
- All artists/supporting staff/audience inside Carnegie Hall must continue to wear a properly fitting mask over their nose and mouth in all areas including backstage.
- All singers, speakers, wind/brass players are required to submit a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance regardless of mask-wearing. (DCINY will assist with coordinating this testing when you are in NYC)
- Any other artist wishing to remove their mask onstage are also required to submit a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance.
- Mask-wearing must resume when these artists leave the stage.
DCINY looks forward to resuming our robust season as programmed in 2022. We thank you for your patience as we navigate this evolving situation together. As always, we are dedicated to the creation of powerful and life changing events here in New York City and look forward to continuing our work together. DCINY will be in direct contact with groups regarding policies anticipated for their time of performance.
