AVA is joining performing arts organizations across the nation in requiring that our visitors and audience members provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend all indoor public performances and events at AVA. Proof of negative COVID-19 tests will not be accepted, with the exception of children under the age of 12; children under 12 will be required to show a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of the event. Further, AVA will adhere to the guidelines regarding proof of vaccination set forth by all venues that host AVA performances. Masking may be required based on the mandates set forth by the City of Philadelphia and we encourage our visitors and audience members to bring masks with them for all AVA performances. This policy is subject to change based upon guidance from the CDC and local health authorities.
