Following the campaign to get as many New Yorkers as possible vaccinated against the coronavirus (COVID-19), numerous locations will be closed to the unvaccinated.
The recent CDC research shows that the Delta variation is as contagious as chickenpox and can be more deadly than other variants of the coronavirus, meaning that the most popular places of performance in town are implementing regulations that ban non-vaccinated individuals from attending events.
As Broadway Theaters are the latest to proclaim that all participants have to be vaccinated and wear masks, other prominent spectacle arts venues are likely to be off-limits to the unvaccinated.
The exceptions to the new Broadway theater regulation include minors under the age of 12 who are still unqualified and anyone with a medical or religious conviction that precludes immunization. However, if exempt from regulation, the person must produce evidence to access a Broadway theatre with a negative COVID-19 test.
The Metropolitan Opera and Carnegie Hall – which are scheduled for the opening event in September and October – stated they would only accept the attendance of vaccinated persons and would not allow youngsters below 12.
Moreover, free concerts for exclusively vaccinated individuals will be organized in every district. During the Home Week of the city, from 14 to 22 August, the exhibitions will take place.
The concert will be headlined by two of Staten Island's most renowned sons. The free performance will take place on Aug. 17 at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, headed by Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, members of the Wu-Tang Clan.
“There’s a lot going on and this is just one of five concerts, all to celebrate the rebirth of New York City,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The concerts begin on Monday, August 16, in the Orchard Beach Bronx and culminate to a Central Park Great Lawn concert on Saturday, August 21, at which Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Hudson, and Paul Simon will head.
As concerts in New York City restart, certain venues and performers have entertained the vaccinated in particular. This involves the immunization of Madison Square Garden for all Foo Fighters guests during a concert organized on Father's Day. The Park Avenue Armory reports, which requires all those there to completely vaccinate the impending performance of "Deep Blue Sea."
