NJWS Covid-19 Policies and Procedures

New Jersey Wind Symphony Attendance Policies and Procedures

Following are Policies and Procedures that are in place for staff, artists, NJWS and audience members.
August 20, 2021

In order to provide a safe, enjoyable and welcoming concert experience for our audience members, artists and staff, and in consideration to your fellow attendees, the New Jersey Wind Symphony has respectfully instituted the following protocols for all NJWS concert events:

  • Without exception, all audience members, artists, and staff must show NJWS staff an original, copy or phone-displayed image of an official CDC, or state-issued proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 before being admitted to NJWS events. The final dose of the vaccine must have been administered at least 14 days before entry. Displaying a vaccination status through a state-sponsored phone app or vaccine passport will also be acceptable. We regret that children under the age of 12, for whom there is no currently available vaccine, are not permitted to attend performances at this time regardless of the vaccination status of their guardian. As soon as children under age 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, they will be welcomed provided that they produce satisfactory proof of full vaccination in accordance with the same standards applicable to adults.
  • In accordance with current CDC recommendations, face masks are required for all attendees. We encourage our attendees to socially distance and observe safe hygiene protocols to the maximum extent practicable.
  • By entering our performance venue for a concert, attendees enter solely at their own risk and signify that they fully accept the potential risk of exposure to COVID-19 without regard to any act or omission to act on our part whatsoever, including arising out of our negligence, willful negligence or intentional acts or omissions to act. Attendees hold harmless NJWS, its directors, officers, employees, members, representatives and agents against any costs, fees, and damages of every kind and nature arising, directly or indirectly, out of any such actual or potential exposure to COVID-19 or any other communicable disease.

The New Jersey Wind Symphony will continue to monitor all state, federal, and local public health guidelines, as well as requirements that may be imposed by our host venues and will adjust our policies and protocols accordingly as the situation evolves.
