Tucson Symphony Orchestra to require masks and proof of vaccination or negative COVID test for audience members

by Tucson Symphony

Tucson — As it resumes live concerts this month, the Tucson Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is making the safety of its audience, musicians and staff, and other fellow residents of Southern Arizona, a top priority. Beginning with the opening concert at Tucson Music Hall on Friday, September 24, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours of the performance, supported by valid photo identification, will be required of all audience members. Audience members will also be required to wear a mask throughout the performance. TSO encourages its audience to upload a photo of their vaccine card or use an app to store it on their phone.

As part of a wider set of protocols, TSO requires all musicians, staff, contractors and ushers to be fully vaccinated as well. These measures represent a baseline for health and safety for everyone connected to TSO. TSO management, in consultation with its stakeholders, will continue to refine, improve and update these protocols.

Ticketholders who have not yet become fully vaccinated can call the TSO Box Office at 520.882.8585 to move their credit to future performances.

TSO encourages everyone to be vaccinated and to follow the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and the Pima County Health Department.
