The West Theatre's COVD-19 Policy for Concerts: All concerts and special events at The West Theatre will still require either proof of a full course of COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken in the prior 72 hours. Patrons must have a completed COVID-19 vaccination card, with their final dose at least fourteen days prior to the event, or a negative COVID-19 test result from 72 hours or less prior to the event. Proof of vaccination may include a physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron ID. Proof of a negative test may be a printed or digital test result that matches the patron ID. Home-rapid tests cannot be accepted as negative result. Limited tests are available at the venue but are not guaranteed. Rapid tests given by a pharmacy or at the DECC can be accepted. Children under 12, who cannot be vaccinated, can show a negative test to attend. People with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination can attend with proof of a recent negative coronavirus test. Effective immediately, masks are recommended, but not required, in the theatre. Please respect those around you when at theatre. We understand this is a fluid situation currently, this policy is subject to change at any point. Taking this step helps ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and the artists, and implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the virus.
THE WEST THEATRE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE OUR SAFETY PROTOCOLS AT ANY TIME.
