CURRENT COVID-19 HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
(current as of May 31, 2022)
Guidelines are subject to change.
As we welcome you back to the Aronoff Center and Music Hall, the health and well-being of our audiences, staff, volunteers, and artists remains our number one priority. The following protocols for both of our venues continue to be informed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our partners at TriHealth, and the total number of new cases and hospital admissions in our region.
- The wearing of masks is OPTIONAL.
- Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or negative test is no longer required for entry.
If you are experiencing COVID-19, flu, or cold symptoms or have recently been exposed, please stay at home and contact our Ticket Office for information about ticket options.
COVID-19 related health guidelines are subject to change and revised policies may be in effect at the time of an event, including, but not limited to, protocols to mitigate a COVID-19 variant/concern or protocol requests of a performer or show, such as the wearing of masks. We will continually assess changes and will adjust our policies according to updated public health guidance and applicable law.
For the most current information, refer back to this page or the event page of a specific event, or call the Aronoff Center Ticket Office at (513) 621-2787 [ARTS] closer to your event date. Protocol updates will also be sent to ticket holders prior to most events, including all Broadway in Cincinnati shows.
Thank you for your cooperation, support, and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at our venues!
