COVID-19 Audition Safety Requirements

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:

Yale University requires all guests on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All auditioning applicants will be asked to submit documentation supporting COVID-19 vaccination status prior to auditioning. Individuals are only considered fully vaccinated fourteen days after receiving the final dose of a vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization or the Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, we strongly encourage all auditioning applicants to follow the Center for Disease Control guidelines for vaccine booster shots. The CDC currently recommends those 18 years and older to receive a booster at least 6 months after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or 2 months after a Johnson & Johnson. Updated recommendations can be found on the CDC website.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR AUDITION:

At check-in you will be required to show proof of ID and proof of vaccination. We will accept proof-of-vaccination from all FDA and WHO authorized vaccines. Proof must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. You may display proof digitally or by presenting a physical copy.

At check-in you will also be required to bring proof of a negative PCR or Rapid Antigen test taken within 24 hours before attending.

At check-in you may be required to answer a health screener.

Masks are required inside all audition rooms and will remain on for the duration of the audition and check in process.
