COVID SAFETY

Updated 1/3/2022: Per San Francisco city guidelines, beginning February 1, 2022, for those eligible, San Francisco Ballet will require proof of a COVID-19 booster –received at least one week prior to the performance they are attending—for entrance into the venue. This expands upon the Company's current requirement that all patrons ages 12 and up present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 and audience members under the age of 12 to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time or antigen [rapid] test within 24 hours of the performance start time).

Patrons will also be required to show a photo ID alongside proof of vaccination and booster shot to enter. Patrons can show either paper or electronic documentation (including a photo of the card).

If your child under the age of 12 does not meet the two-week or greater completion requirement to qualify as being fully vaccinated, they must show proof of a negative result from a COVID-19 test taken within one day for antigen or two days for PCR tests prior to entry into the War Memorial Opera House or 455 Franklin Street. Fully vaccinated children under 12 may present proof of full vaccination and if eligible booster shot in lieu of a negative test result.

Masks are required for everyone at all times, regardless of vaccination status, while inside the War Memorial Opera House. Masks with valves, gaiters, and scarves used as a mask are not permitted. At this time, drinks are not permitted inside the auditorium to ensure masks are worn throughout the performance.

*Per the Center for Disease Control (CDC), a person is considered fully vaccinated greater than or equal to two weeks after completion of a two-dose mRNA series or single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and for those eligible for a booster shot, one week after the booster shot was administered.
