Owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theaters in New York City will require audiences, performers, and staff to vaccinate all performances by October.
The press release stated that audiences in the theater also need to wear masks unless they eat or drink at a designated place.
Broadway was hit hard during the pandemic because theaters had to be closed due to Covid-19.
According to the joint policy, guests need to be vaccinated by FDA or WHO authorized vaccines to participate in the performance, and must show proof when entering the venue.
According to the statement, children under the age of 12 and children who are sick or cannot be vaccinated due to close religious beliefs are excluded.
The announcement comes as Hollywood is also trying to figure out how to continue working safely.
