Health and safety
Last updated on Dec 2, 2022
Berkeley Rep is a vaccinated company, including staff, artists, and volunteers. All patrons attending shows, events, or classes must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a legitimate medical, religious, or legal exemption that prohibits you or a member of your party from receiving the vaccination. Patrons may be asked to present a vaccination card, a photo of your card, or a digital vaccine record (e.g., myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov) with matching photo ID, or proof of exemption, and should bring it with them when they attend the theatre. We accept proof of Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. We are not able to accept the AstraZeneca vaccine at this time. Negative PCR and antigen tests will not be allowed for entry.
To keep our actors and crew safe, masks must be worn indoors and must cover both the nose and mouth. Masks are not required in the Narsai M. David Courtyard (the outdoor courtyard between our two theatres). Please wear your mask over your nose and mouth if you are in Michael’s Second Act bar and not actively eating or drinking. We highly encourage 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.
Additional safety measures below have been put into place with the aim to make your experience the most comfortable:
- We are ensuring our theatres’ ventilation systems are up to the recommended standard for COVID-19 protection.
- We've hired a Director of Patron Experience and other paid staff to help enforce our safety guidelines.
Our COVID-19 safety policies will continue to be reviewed and revised based on the advice of medical experts, government guidance, and evolving circumstances.
