The Gateway’s COVID-19 Policies
Thank you for your cooperation in helping to make The Gateway a safe place for everybody to work and to enjoy live theatre. Ensuring the health of our staff, crew, cast members, and patrons is our top priority. Therefore, based on the latest guidance from the CDC and keeping in line with Broadway’s COVID-19 rules, we have enacted the following policies for our guests:
 
  • ALL patrons are required to be FULLY VACCINATED to attend performances. The CDC considers an individual to be fully vaccinated at least 14 days after their second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after their single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID-19 vaccine.
     
  • The only exception to the above will be for guests under the age of 12 or those who need reasonable accommodations, due to a disability or sincerely held religious belief. These individuals must provide proof of one of the following:
    - a negative COVID-19 PCR test performed by a medical provider within 72 hours of the performance start time. The test results must clearly show the date and time of the test.
    - - OR - -
    - A negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time. The results must clearly show the date and time of the test. This test may be performed by a medical professional or by using an over-thecounter testing kit in conjunction with the manufacturer’s smart phone app to display the results via a digital pass or QR code, similar to an airline boarding pass (please do not bring the actual test, as it will not be accepted as proof).
     
  • Valid proof of vaccination (NYS Excelsior Pass or COVID-19 vaccination card) must be presented in person at the theatre along with a valid picture ID (driver’s license, passport, student ID or military ID). Guests under 12 who do not have a picture ID must be accompanied by an adult who meets the above requirements.
     
  • Face masks are required for ALL GUESTS inside the lobby and theatre for the duration of performance. Masks must: - Completely cover the nose and mouth - Fit snugly against the sides of the face and not have gaps - Not be a face shield, gator, bandana, scarf or have vents. - Please do not attend shows if you are having any symptoms that indicate possible illness.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely to help ensure that the theatre can remain open in these trying times in as safe a manner as possible. These policies are subject to change as we receive new guidance from federal and state agencies on safety protocols. Please visit our website or call the box office (631-286-1133) to check for any changes. It is our hope that in the coming months we will be able to relax these safety measures.

We sincerely thank you for your patronage and cooperation!
