Why is RLT requiring masks and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID19 test?
Our updated COVID-19 policy is consistent with current best practices and is designed to keep everyone as safe as possible. We have consulted with government officials, as well as local and national arts organizations to create these best-practice policies in hopes of being able to continue to safely bring live performances to our community. We offer our patrons the option of either full vaccination or negative test results, which allows accommodations for children under 5 as well as individuals with religious or medical exemptions who are unable or unwilling to obtain the vaccine at this time.
What does “fully vaccinated” mean?
Fully vaccinated means the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
Will I be required to wear a mask?
Yes, all patrons ages 3 and up are required to wear a mask unless actively eating or drinking.
What types of masks are acceptable to wear?
Wear a mask with two or more layers. Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and under your chin. The following are prohibited: masks with exhalation valves, masks made of loosely woven fabrics, scarves, buffs, bandanas, gaiters, and face shields alone. Masks will be available upon request.
What type of vaccine documentation is acceptable?
Your physical CDC vaccination card, a photo of your CDC vaccination card stored on a phone/electronic device, or a digital medical record through Immunize NV or Renown Medical.
Do I need to show my vaccine card every time I see a show?
Yes, you will be required to show proof of full vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test result each time you attend a performance at RLT until further notice.
What if I lost my vaccination card?
You can look up your vaccination record at izrecord.nv.gov.
What can I show to prove a negative COVID-19 test?
Documentation of a negative COVID-19 test can be: a PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance start time or an antigen test taken within6 hours of the performance start time. Tests administered by an official testing center and self-administered at-home tests will be accepted.
How do I prove a self-administered “at-home” negative COVID-19 test?
Documentation of a self-administered test can be:
- A negative result on the app used to administer the test.
- A photo of a negative test result.
- Patrons should NOT bring the physical test mechanism with them to the venue.
