The Westside Theatre is committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for all, including staff, production personnel, and audiences. Doing so requires the cooperation and effort of everyone who enter our doors.
To ensure the safety of everyone in the theatre, the following policies are in place until further notice:
We strongly encourage our staff and audiences to wear masks, as we believe that they are instrumental in preventing the spread of disease. Masks are not currently required for audience or staff.
WHAT WE’RE DOING
The Westside Theatre, under the advisement of HVAC professionals, has implemented ventilation and filtration enhancements throughout the building, based on best practices. We have also increased daily cleaning and disinfection of all surfaces. Furthermore, efforts have been made to reduce contact points throughout the building, and we encourage the use of print-at-home or tickets on a mobile device. Our staff have all been advised of risk mitigation tactics, through the advice of public health professionals, and will also be required to adhere to the same policies outlined above.
Due to the constantly-evolving nature of the ongoing pandemic, these policies are subject to change. All staff and patrons are required to follow all CDC, NYS, and NYC guidelines at the time of performance. These updated guidelines may include additional requirements, beyond what is outlined above. Additional protocols may include health screenings, testing, proof of vaccination, temperature checks, or more. Please check this page again at the time of your performance for the most up to date information.
If you receive confirmation of a positive COVID-19 test within two weeks prior to your performance, we ask that you consult a medical professional and not attend the performance unless cleared by said professional.
