Covid-19 Safety Guidelines

Updated December 17, 2021

As we welcome audiences back for live performances, the health and safety of our patrons, artists, and staff remains our highest priority. To that end, we want to share the latest information about our Covid-19 safety guidelines and policies. Please note that we will continue to monitor closely all relevant data and recommendations and make appropriate adjustments as deemed safe.

Syracuse Stage has achieved 100% vaccination among staff.

All guest artists will be expected to be fully vaccinated.

AT THE DOOR, audience members, 5 and older, will be required to show proof of full vaccination, or for those not vaccinated, a negative Covid-19 test result. For children under 5, proof of negative test is strongly encouraged but not required for entry to the theatre.

A valid negative Covid-19 test must meet the following conditions:
- OPTION 1 -- Obtain a negative PCR test from a healthcare provider within 72 hours of entry for the event you are attending
- OPTION 2 -- Obtain a negative Antigen test from a healthcare provider within 6 hours of entry for the event you are attending

Without vaccination proof or a negative Covid-19 test, patrons will not be allowed into the building.

MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES by everyone regardless of vaccination status, except while eating or drinking in designated areas. Food and drink will NOT be permitted in the auditorium.

Concessions and auxiliary events may be suspended or limited.

Full vaccination means that either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of FDA or WHO authorized double-dose vaccines or that 14 days have passed since receiving the sole dose of FDA or WHO authorized single-dose vaccines.

Vaccination verification accepted in any of the following forms:

• Physical vaccination card
• New York State Excelsior Pass
• Digital vaccination cards through your home Health Department 
• Photo of vaccination card



Syracuse Stage encourages all eligible patrons to get the Covid-19 vaccine. Vaccines are free, safe, and effective, and currently available for everyone ages 12 and older. For more information about the vaccine or how to schedule a vaccine appointment, please visit one of the links below:
