The Moss Arts Center institutes vaccination policy for public events
Effective Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, the Moss Arts Center will require that its patrons provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result before entering public events held in its performance venues, the Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre, and the Cube, to help mitigate the impact of coronavirus on the campus and community.
The vaccination policy has been developed in conjunction with Virginia Tech campus officials and the university’s COVID-19 task force, as well as recommendations from health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
All guests and working personnel age 12 and older will be required to show proof of having received a COVID-19 vaccination. Unvaccinated patrons must show either a negative COVID-19 PCR test or antigen test. The test must list the person’s name, results, and a time stamp within 72 hours of the performance time.
Face masks continue to be required and must be worn while inside the Moss Arts Center regardless of vaccination status.
For entry to a public event, ONE of the following will be required:
- An official, government-issued vaccination card listing the guest’s name and date the last dose was administered.
- A photo or digital version of an official government-issued vaccination card listing the guest’s name and date the last dose was administered.
- For current Virginia Tech students and faculty, staff, and wage employees, a valid Hokie Passport.
- A printed or digital negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken within 72 hours of the event that includes the guest’s name and date the last test was taken.
- For guests with vaccine medical exemptions, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid test taken within 72 hours of to the event that includes the guest’s name and date the last test was taken.
A Hokie Passport will be accepted for Virginia Tech students and faculty, staff, and wage employees, as they are already covered under a vaccination protocol that requires proof of vaccination or testing.
Individuals who cannot provide proof of vaccination or a valid negative COVID-19 test according to the conditions outlined above will not be allowed to enter the event and will be provided with an option to exchange or refund their ticket.
Those who feel unwell — whether vaccinated or unvaccinated — should stay home.
For those who are unable to attend in person, the Moss Arts Center offers a livestream option for ticketholders for most spring 2022 performances, or they may contact the box office at 540-231-5300 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request an exchange or refund. Ticket purchasers are responsible for communicating these rules to whomever they provide tickets.
