This information is provided to help you make the decision that is best for you about attending our events.

Our health protocols are informed by UW guidelines and, as such, we will not require proof of vaccination or a recent negative test to attend events. Face coverings are strongly recommended, but not currently required for the 2023–24 Season.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19 — stay home, even if you are fully vaccinated. Please refer to the UW’s public health guidance and requirements flowchart to determine when you can safely return to UW’s campus and Meany Hall. Additional resources for isolation and precautions can be found on the CDC website.

Through our Customer Care Commitment, if for any reason you are unable to attend an event, you can receive a full refund for your tickets prior to the performance. 

The livestreaming option that was available during the peak of the pandemic is no longer available.

Face coverings are strongly recommended during activities that may generate more respiratory aerosols and involve frequent close contact or crowd settings. Face coverings remain an important way to protect against respiratory illness of all kinds, including COVID-19. When you wear a mask, choose a well-fitted, high-quality mask — such as a KN95, KF94, N95 or surgical mask instead of a cloth mask alone — which helps protect you as well as those around you.
