COVID health and safety at the Broadway Performance Hall and Erickson Theatre

Updated: October 1, 2021

Proof of vaccination and masking required

Seattle Central Theaters require proof of vaccination for entry to all performances at the Broadway Performance Hall and Erickson Theatre. Only children under 12, and people with a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief that prevents vaccination, may attend without proof of vaccination. Individuals who meet those criteria must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time. Additionally, masking is required inside the venue. Patrons and employees will be required to wear masks, except while actively eating or drinking. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID exists in any place where people gather. By entering these facilities Patrons assume all risks relating to COVID and voluntarily release and waive all claims against the theater, Seattle Central College and Seattle College District VI.

Fully-vaccinated patrons

A patron vaccinated against COVID-19 by a two-dose mRNA vaccine (such as Moderna and Pfizer), or a single dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson), is considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after the final dose of vaccine (the second dose for a two-dose regimen, or the single dose for a single-dose regimen). Documentation of vaccination status must be shown with valid I.D.* upon entry to the venue and available upon request at any time.

The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination:

Guests younger than 18 may present a government-issued photo ID or a school photo ID as an alternative.

What we are doing to prevent the spread of th COVID-19 virus:

Enhanced cleaning and sanitation

Our venues have and will continue to undergo enhanced cleaning and sanitation by our operations staff:

  • Doorknobs, railings, counter tops, elevator buttons and other common touch points are sanitized with increased frequency.
  • Performance halls, larger gathering areas, transported equipment, and other larger common areas are cleaned first and then sanitized using electrostatic technology, which allows disinfecting solution to adhere to all surfaces.

Virus filtering, heating, and cooling

We’re also improving the air quality at our venues. The following measures have been taken for your return to the theatre:

  • Air handling units have MERV 13 Filters that confines viruses.
  • Air handling units are set for maximum fresh air circulation.
  • We change filters on a regular basis.
