Owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theaters in New York City will require audience members and performers as well as staff to be vaccinated for all performances through the month of October.
Masks will also be required for audiences inside theaters, except for when they are eating or drinking in designated locations, the release said.
Broadway has been hard hit during the pandemic as theaters have had to shutter because of Covid-19.
Under the joint policy, guests will need to be fully vaccinated with a vaccine authorized by the FDA or WHO in order to attend a performance and must show proof upon entry.
According to the statement, exceptions will be made for children younger than 12 years old as well as those with a medical condition or closely-held religious belief that prevent vaccination.
The announcement comes as Hollywood also grapples with how to continue work safely.
