The Palace Theatre
COVID-19 

Effective October 26, 2021: Vaccinations or a negative Covid-19 test will be required. Masks are encouraged for vaccinated individuals and are required at all times for unvaccinated individuals and children 11 years and under.

The Palace Theatre will now require either  proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or  a negative COVID test, as detailed below. In other words, if you are not fully vaccinated, you must have proof of a negative COVID test to enter the performance. Children 11 and under can be admitted without a negative test as long as they are accompanied by an adult with proof of vaccine or negative test.
 
Fully vaccinated means, on the day of the show, the person is at least 14 days after their second dose of an FDA or WHO approved two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (such as the BioNTech, Pfizer, or Moderna vaccines) or at least 14 days after their single dose of an FDA or WHO approved single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (such as the J&J vaccine). Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider who administered the vaccination. Patrons may display proof on a smartphone or present a physical copy.
 
A negative COVID test must be either a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time or a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time and administered by an official healthcare provider.
 
In addition, a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, will be accepted for all patrons 18 years and older. Patrons younger than 18 may use a government-issued photo ID or school photo ID. An adult who meets the above requirements must accompany patrons under 12. In addition, a valid ticket is also required for admission.

Patrons who cannot provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test upon arrival to the venue will not be granted entry.
 
Masks are encouraged  while inside The Palace Theatre if you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Per the State of Connecticut’s mask requirements, unvaccinated individuals and children 11 and under are required  to wear masks at all times while inside the venue except while actively eating or drinking.

Masks must completely cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings. If a patron does not have an acceptable mask, a mask will be provided.

Additionally, staff of The Palace Theatre are fully vaccinated and will continue to wear masks at all times while inside the venue.

If you feel sick, have a fever, or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, we ask that you make your health and the health of others a priority by staying home.
