On July 27th, 2021 the Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued updated guidelines in response to the emerging Delta variant of the coronavirus recommending masks be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status.  We are now requiring masks for all individuals in our building in all public spaces. Masks may be removed in the studio if the rehearsal or performance activity requires it and if all individuals present are vaccinated.

Beginning August 16th, 2021 until further notice, New York Live Arts will require proof of vaccination status to access our facilities, including studios. All guests 16+ years must present a valid government-issued ID along with acceptable forms of vaccination proof including: NYS Excelsior Pass and CDC Vaccination card.  For guests 12 – 16 years please provide a school-issued ID along with vaccination proof.

For consideration of accommodations under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) please email covidsafety@newyorklivearts.org.
