Cleveland Orchestra to Require Vaccinations For all Guests

The Cleveland Orchestra has updated its COVID-19 guidelines, to include vaccination requirements for all guests.

Guests who are unable to be vaccinated or have not received their booster dose will be required to provide proof of a negative Covid test.

Audience members ages 3 and older who cannot be vaccinated may provide proof of a negative test result received from a completed lab-certified antigen COVID-19 test within 24 hours prior to entering Severance, or a negative test result received from a completed PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering Severance.
