COVID-19 Protocols

The COVID-19 safety requirements for attending performances in our 2022/23 season are currently as follows:

Symphonic Concert Series @ Zellerbach Hall
in accordance with the Cal Performances policy for Zellerbach Hall

  • Masks are required inside the performance auditorium.
  • N95, KN95, KF94, or FFP2 masks are recommended, though cloth and surgical masks are also permitted. (See more below.)
  • Masks are strongly recommended, though not required, in lobby/waiting areas.
  • Up-to-date vaccinations are strongly recommended, though not required.

Wearing an Appropriate Mask
Appropriate masks fit snugly over your nose, mouth, and chin.  When wearing cloth masks, we recommend double-masking with a surgical mask underneath to improve the fit. Unacceptable masks include masks with exhalation valves or vents, scarves, balaclava, bandanas, and neck gaiters.

We require all performance attendees ages 5 and up to be fully vaccinated to the maximum extent for which they are eligible. This means meeting one of the following criteria:

Ages 12 and older:
– Have received a booster vaccination at least 14 days before the performance; OR
– If not yet eligible for the booster:
– Have received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines within the past five months and at least 14 days before the performance; OR

Ages 5 through 11:

Masking Requirements
Per CDC guidance, we highly recommend the use of procedural masks (either alone or with a cloth mask on top) or higher-grade N95 or KN95 masks for the utmost protection. Please avoid the use of cloth masks alone.
