COVID-19 Event Updates

January 13, 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.  Although DCINY currently remains on pause, all focus is on the daily successes achieved by our partners at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and on Broadway.  With Carnegie Hall recently reopened in October, 2021, DCINY shares their current COVID protocols, with the anticipation that they will be reviewed and updated as circumstances may change. 

Current requirements for Carnegie Hall include the following (current as of February, 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. Everyone coming to Carnegie Hall will be required to show proof of full vaccination as well as proof that they are fully up-to-date on CDC-recommended boosters, based on their eligibility, 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, including artists and production staff. 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.

DCINY looks forward to resuming our robust season as programmed in 2022 coordinating with our venues’ reopening and local health authorities approving the return to normalcy. 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.
