Originally scheduled to conclude at the end of Octorber, The Broadway League has extended the current Covid protocols for all cast, crew, and audiences in all 41 of Broadway theatres.

From now until at least the end of the year everyone who enters one of the 41 Broadway theatres must be vaccinated. Audience members must also have their faces covered while in the building.

Anyone who is unable to receive the vaccine must show proof of a negative test withing 72 hours of attending a show. If a rapid test is conducted, then the limit is reduced to six hours prior to attendance.

Currently 17 of the 41 theatres are hosting a Broadway production.

Since implementation of the protocols in July, “Aladdin” is the only production who has had to shut down due to a Covid issue and that was just one night.

A required vaccination to attend a production is not limited to Broadway; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Key to NYC” program requires proof of vaccination to enter gyms, restaurants, and other venues.
