COVID-19 Health Update: A.R.T/New York Vaccine Policy

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with the safety of our members, office tenants, stakeholders and our staff in mind; and in compliance with New York City's vaccine mandate for all indoor activities, A.R.T./New York will now require confirmation of vaccination against COVID-19 at all of our locations; Spaces @520, South Oxford Space, and at the A.R.T./New York Theatre’s, effective September 1, 2021.

To that end, all eligible individuals (12 years of age and over) visiting our locations will be asked to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the time of their visit; with at least one shot from a vaccine considered effective by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and/or the World Health Organization (“WHO”). Proof of vaccination may be provided upon arrival or in advance by completing our secure A.R.T./New York Verification Form. Proof of vaccination includes your vaccination record card (paper or photo) or any digital vaccine card via an app (e.g. NY Excelsior Pass, CLEAR, NYC COVID SAFE, etc.), in addition to your photo ID.

Proof of vaccination will be required for all visitors,  including all rental participants active in our rented studios, theatres, any guests, caregivers, or audience members. Ineligible persons and those claiming a medical or religious exemption will be required to provide exemption documentation and will also be required to wear a mask at all times. 

Our staff will verify documentation of vaccination against COVID-19 from all eligible persons (12 years of age and over) and affirm that they are vaccinated with at least one shot at the time of their onsite visit.Eligible, non-vaccinated persons, unable to provide medical or religious exemption with documentation, will be denied entrance at this time.

All other existing safety measures and guidelines at our A.R.T/ New york Facilities remain in place. Including but not limited to the mask requirement. This policy is ever-changing as the pandemic is ever-changing and we reserve the right to modify this policy as we determine may be necessary in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local law or guidance. We are working to develop the best strategy for implementing the City's vaccine mandate, and we will continue to keep you informed about changes to our policies as we do so. 

We believe this new policy is a crucial step in reducing the risk of exposure at our locations, and we appreciate your understanding and compliance. We are doing our best to ensure the safety of all who enter our spaces or come into contact with our employees. Please note that our staff are working under this mandate and have provided proof of vaccination in order to work in our facilities.
