YWCP Concert COVID-19 Protocols

Please agree to the following protocols before purchasing your concert tickets.

 

The health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff, and volunteers is our top priority.

All performing singers will be tested at least 72 hours before the concert regardless of vaccination status, and must show a negative test result to the staff. For the December concert, singers will be masked during the performance (except for vaccinated soloists). All professional instrumentalists will show proof of vaccination.

At the advice of the YWCP’s COVID-19 Protocol Committee, a proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 lab test taken within 72 hours of the concert is required to attend YWCP concerts and events. Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered two weeks or more in advance of the concert. Patrons must bring an electronic, photo, or paper copy of their full vaccination card or negative test result with them to the concert with appropriate ID matching the name on the vaccination card or lab report.

In accordance with health and safety guidelines from the City and County of San Francisco, a face covering is required for entry into YWCP concerts and must be worn at all times. Face masks must completely cover nose and mouth and have ear loops or similar to hold in place. Gaiters and bandanas are not acceptable.

Patrons MUST BE ASYMPTOMATIC AND WITHOUT RECENT KNOWN EXPOSURE TO SOMEONE COVID.  If someone in your party has had a recent positive test or a COVID exposure, they need to show proof of a negative PCR test.

There will be an automatic seat left free between each party of ticket buyers. For even more spread-out seating, please choose a balcony ticket.
