SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The San Francisco Symphony today announces updated safety protocols for audiences attending live performances at Davies Symphony Hall.

Beginning February 1, 2022, for those eligible, the SF Symphony will begin requiring proof of a COVID-19 booster—received at least one week prior to each event—for entrance into Davies Symphony Hall.

This expands upon the Symphony’s current requirement (in effect through January 31, 2022) that all patrons, performers, volunteers, and staff ages 12 and up present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 for entry into the venue, and audience members between the ages of 5 and 11 show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test within 48 hours of the event, or antigen [rapid] test within 24 hours of the event). Audience members ages 2 to 4 must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test within 48 hours of the event, or antigen [rapid] test within 24 hours of the event). All patrons are required to wear a face mask while attending performances and, at this time, drinks are not permitted inside the performance hall.

Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or other WHO authorized COVID-19 vaccine administered two weeks or more in advance of the concert. Beginning February 1, 2022, the Symphony requires up-to-date vaccination, defined as two weeks following full initial vaccination until eligible to receive a booster and, for those eligible, one week after receiving a booster.

These protocols are in accordance with policies enacted by San Francisco Department of Public Health. For further details about health and safety protocols at Davies Symphony Hall, visit
