COVID-19 Policies

Merkin Hall
Lucy Moses School
Face the Music

At Kaufman Music Center, your health and safety remain our biggest priority. We will continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control, New York State and New York City as circumstances continue to change.

HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES FOR MERKIN HALL AUDIENCES

  • Beginning October 24, 2022, all guests are strongly encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask while in our performance venues including Merkin Hall and Ann Goodman Recital Hall.
  • Audience members are no longer required to show proof of vaccination in order to attend a performance or event.
  • Kaufman Music Center will continue to monitor federal, state, and city guidelines for health and safety in order to ensure your experience in Merkin Hall is safe.

    The safety plan and visitor guidelines are subject to change as federal, state, and city recommendations evolve. Despite the implementation of enhanced safety measures, an inherent risk of exposure to infectious disease still exists. By attending a Merkin Hall performance, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to infectious disease.

    All ticket holders will receive advance notice of the health and safety protocols in place for their concerts. Any policy or schedule changes will be communicated in a timely and transparent way. Additionally, this page will remain an up-to-date resource.

    If you’re feeling ill or have symptoms related to a cold or infectious disease, please stay home.

    Anyone requiring a ticket exchange due to health and safety concerns may do so without incurring an exchange fee.
