What are the requirements for Covid testing of audience, performers, and staff?

We’re all in the same boat! Bargemusic is an intimate performance space, and everybody is part of the performance. Therefore, as of June 1, 2021, in order to comply with New York State regulations, all audience members, performers, and staff at Bargemusic must supply upon arrival at the Barge:

1. *Proof (mobile application or paper form) of negative Covid test (PCR or NAATs, performed within 72 hours of the performance start time; or antigen test performed within 6 hours of start time of the event)


2. **Proof of vaccination completed at least 14 days prior to the performance date (i.e., copy of CDC vaccination card or mobile application) Please have your proof of vaccination or negative Covid test ready to show when you arrive at Bargemusic.

* You must have received a negative diagnostic test result for COVID-19 using a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or DOH authorized polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or other nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs) of comparable analytical sensitivity performance that was performed on a specimen (e.g., swab) collected within 72 hours of the performance/event start time. Responsible Parties may also accept negative test results for COVID-19 from an FDA authorized antigen test performed on a specimen collected within 6 hours of the performance/event start time. Audience members, staff, and performers/talent must present proof of the negative diagnostic test result (e.g., mobile application, paper form) to designated employees upon arrival to the performance/event.

**As an alternative to the testing requirement, employees and performers/talent may provide proof of having completed the COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14 days prior to the date of the performance/event. [/box]
