COVID-19 PROTOCOL AND LIABILITY INFORMATION

AUDIENCE CHECKLIST

The Stonewall Chorale is tremendously excited to welcome you back to in-person performances! Below you will find a simple checklist to ensure that you are ready to join us for live music with our shared priority of safety for all our participants.

#1: Please bring your vaccination proof and photo ID:

All visitors are required to show proof of full vaccination (with a minimum of two weeks having passed since the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or a single dose of a one-dose vaccine) against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization.

You can verify your vaccination by providing your physical card, Excelsior Pass or downloaded CLEAR app (or other standardized methods).

#2: Bring your mask.

To ensure the safety of all those involved, all guests must wear a properly fitting mask over their nose and mouth while inside the performance space. Unfortunately, no food or drink will be provided at this time based on the Chorale's Safety Guidelines. A personal bottle of water is acceptable to bring into the space as the removal of masks should be kept to a minimum.

Please note that masks may not have exhaust vents as bandanas, face shields, and gaiters are not permitted.

#3: Arrive on time

To reduce pre-concert congestion and expedite the check-in process, we request that you plan on arriving to the concert venue between 7:00 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

#4: Not feeling well? Please, stay home.

If you happen to have any symptoms corresponding with the COVID-19 virus (or any of the variants at the time), please do not attend the concert. You can feel free to reach out to the Chorale (news@stonewallchorale.org) as we will do our best to accommodate exchanges, credits, and refunds should you be unable to attend an event.
