Health & Safety Protocols for In-person Events
Protocols for attending in-person events are developed in conjunction with evolving state, local and university health guidelines. A&L staff, artists, speakers and volunteers are also required to fully follow protocols. Please check this page regularly for updates, and make sure your current email address is on file with the A&L Ticket Office for important communications.
Proof of Full Vaccination Is Required for Entry.
Proof of full vaccination will be required for entry to all indoor A&L events until further notice. "Full vaccination" means a final COVID-19 vaccine dose was administered at least 14 days prior.
Masks are Required Indoors at All Times.
All patrons must bring and wear their own face covering that fully covers both nose and mouth with ear loops (or similar) to hold it securely in place. Bandanas, gaiters and masks with external valves are not permitted. Face shields alone are not adequate protection. Mask-wearing is also strongly encouraged in outdoor spaces.
Acceptable Forms of Vaccination Documentation Include:
CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (physical card or digital photo) plus a state-issued photo ID* that matches the vaccine record.
State of California Department of Public Health Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record
plus a state-issued photo ID* that matches the vaccine record. (Digital vaccine record must include recipient name and vaccination dose dates).
UC Santa Barbara students, staff and faculty can present their daily green UCSB COVID-19 Clearance Survey Badge. (Clearance email not accepted; badge must be displayed via the UCSB Student Health portal.)
* Photo ID is not required for minors who are accompanied by an adult.
Unvaccinated audience members with medical or religious exemptions must show documentation of the exemption, along with proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. The test must be from a state-approved lab/testing provider. Rapid over-the-counter or at-home tests will not be accepted.
If you are unvaccinated and do not have a documented exemption (or have questions about attending with a child under age 12),
please contact the A&L ticket office
in advance to discuss your options. Many events include an at-home viewing option with purchase.
