NEW YORK — Broadway is extending its COVID-19 vaccination and mask requirements through the end of the year.

The Broadway League announced Friday that proof of vaccination will continue to be required for all audience members, performers, backstage crew and venue staff. People with medical conditions that prevent them from getting the vaccine can get exemptions.

Audiences will also be required to keep wearing masks except when eating or drinking in specific areas. These rules apply to all 41 theaters.

Children under the age of 12 who attend Broadway shows will need to provide proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of a show, or a negative rapid antigen test within six hours of a show.

The policies are expected to be reviewed again by Dec. 1, for performances starting in early 2022.
