Concert halls and opera houses are moving to require customers to have had booster shots

Carnegie Hall in New York

Are you going to the opera, a concert hall or a museum? If you haven’t received a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, you won’t be entering certain prominent locations across the country.

Earlier this month, the Metropolitan Opera made a third plan, or booster, mandatory for all adult employees and audience members. Carnegie Hall followed suit with a recall requirement that will take effect on February 14.

City Center, a 2,257-seat Moorish Revival theater on West 55th Street in Manhattan that features a variety of programs including classic Broadway musicals, is adding an encore requirement starting next week.

Broadway theater owners are also discussing adding an recall requirement for their audiences.

The Broadway League, the group that represents theater owners, said it was “working with our union colleagues on the recall mandate” and that the “theatre protocol committee is working on all other protocols for theaters.” .

In addition to the recall requirement, some museums are following new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on masks and banning cloth masks. The list of museums includes the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Harvard Art Museum.
