Broadway fans will need to prove they’ve been vaccinated for Covid-19 and wear masks when theatres reopen.

According to the Associated Press, audience members will have to wear face coverings and show proof they are fully vaccinated by a FDA or WHO authorised vaccine when they enter theatres.

There will be exceptions to the vaccine rule for children under 12, who are not yet eligible for any of the approved shots, and for people with a medical condition or religious belief that prevents vaccination.

Those individuals will need to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test. Masks are required for the audience except whilst eating or drinking in designated locations.
