LOS ANGLES (CNS) - The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association announced today it will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 for all audience members, staff and artists at LA Phil-presented concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Performances begin Oct. 9. Masks will also be mandated, per guidelines from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
Patrons will be required to have received their final vaccine dose two weeks prior to entering the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Attendees will need to bring a photo ID and either a physical or digital copy of their vaccination card.
California residents may request digital vaccination records at myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov.
Ticket holders who are not fully vaccinated by the date of the performance can either receive an account credit or request a full refund. Subscribers who choose not to renew will have their seat locations retained and have the option to renew for the 2022/23 season.
The LA Phil has canceled the first two programs of its Toyota Symphony for Youth series because children under 12 are not eligible for the vaccine. As soon as children under 12 are eligible for the vaccine, the program will be restarted.
The new guidelines do not impact LA Phil outdoor venues at the Hollywood Bowl or The Ford.
