Vaccine Policy and Mask Mandate for the Vic Theatre
Per the City of Chicago’s public health order, in order to attend any indoor event at the Vic Theatre, all patrons 5 years of age or older are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (must be 2 weeks past final dose) and must show proof of vaccination at the time of entry. A negative COVID-19 test result is no longer valid for entry. Proof of vaccination can only include a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, a clear photocopy or digital photo of the CDC card. Patrons 16 years of age or older will also need to provide a government issued photo ID that matches their vaccination record. The only exception to this policy involves fans who have previously received a medical or religious exemption, as long as those patrons provide proof of the medical or religious exemption and a COVID-19 test administered by a medical professional within the last 72 hours prior to entering the event. Taking these steps helps to ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and the artists, and implementing this simple measure minimizes risk and the spread of the virus. We encourage you to get vaccinated and boosted if you have not already!
Following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and based on Chicago’s current local COVID-19 data, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) is requiring that everyone age two or older wear masks in public indoor settings except when actively eating or drinking. A non-vented N95 mask or other well-fitted mask is strongly recommended to provide maximum protection. We will not allow a scarf, ski mask, balaclava, bandana, turtleneck, collar, single layer of fabric, or any mask that has an unfiltered one-way exhaust valve.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or a bacteria, virus or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether occurring before, during, or after the event, however caused or contracted, and voluntarily waive all claims and potential claims against Jam Productions, Ltd. and the Vic Theatre (including Vic Holdings, LLC, Freed Vic LLC, Albert Interests, LLC, Victoria Entertainment Properties, LLC and Vic Operating Company LLC) relating to such risks.
