COVID-19 POLICY – HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
In line with current mandates, we no longer require masks, proof of vaccination, or a negative covid test to enter The Independent. However, we still strongly encourage you to get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already, and to mask up whenever possible!
* *Please note that this policy is subject to change on a show-by-show basis or per an artist’s request.
Masks are recommended for all events. It is recommended that whenever possible, everyone wear a non-vented respirator, such as an N95, KN95, or KF94 respirator, or a well-fitting surgical mask with a cloth mask over it. Not recommended: a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck, collar, single layer of fabric, or any mask that has an unfiltered one-way exhaust valve.
Further guidance from the CDC on mask recommendations can be found here.
We appreciate everyone’s participation in helping us safely bring shows back to the Bay Area. We encourage everyone to sign up for CA Notify as an added layer of protection for themselves and the community to receive alerts when you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 and to please get vaccinated if you have not already! If you still need to schedule your vaccine, visit vaccines.gov or COVID19.ca.gov/vaccines for more information and to book your appointment.
