What to Know About Broadway Theaters' Mask & Vaccination Policies

Here are the new rules on mask and vaccination policies to attend a Broadway show.

While Broadway theaters are still committed to ensuring everyone's safety during shows, they have decided to make attendance restrictions a little more lax.

Back in June, according to an announcement made on the Broadway League website, all 41 Broadway theaters updated their requirements to a "mask optional" policy for the month of July. Now, Broadway is extending the policy through the month of August and until further notice. Consistent with both the New York City and State recommendations, the audience is strongly encouraged to wear a face mask in theaters, but the choice to wear it or not will be at the guests' discretion.

The league ended its vaccine mandate earlier this year.
