COVID-19 Policies

Park Avenue Armory cares about the health and safety of our audience and staff. The Armory has put in place COVID-19-related protocols that will comply or exceed New York State Regulations. Specific details will be sent via email, listed on prior to performances, and may be subject to change or updates at any time.

Beginning January 29, 2022, the Armory will require proof of a booster shot for all those for whom the timing of earlier vaccinations makes them eligible for a booster. Those not yet eligible will be able to continue to enter provided they are two weeks past their second dose in a two-dose vaccine series or two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine.

In compliance with New York City's Key to NYC, effective January 29, 2022, all ticket holders above the age of 5 years old must be fully vaccinated. "Fully vaccinated" means that you received your final dose of an FDA or WHO-approved vaccine at least 14 days before your performance date. At check-in, ticket-holders will be required to show proof of full vaccination (the New York State Excelsior Pass or a hard copy or photo of your vaccination card) and a government-issued photo ID (for ticket holders 18 years of age or older). In addition, all guests under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult. Please do not come to the Armory if you have symptoms of COVID-19, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 10 days, or have been in close contact with someone infected with or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days.

Your safety is important to us. In addition to the precautions taken above, all patrons and staff are required to wear N95, KN95 or KF94 masks while inside the Armory. To provide outside ventilation and air filtration, the Wade Thompson Drill Hall is equipped with large air handlers with MERV 8 and MERV 14 filters that exceeding the government standards for filtration. Nonetheless, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. Those attending performances at the Armory do so at their own risk.
