CYS COVID Safety Policy & Protocols
Chicago Youth Shakespeare (CYS) is deeply committed to doing all that we can to ensure the health and safety of our young artists, staff, and audience members. To that end, CYS has mandated that all staff members, including visiting artists and youth artist members of the CYS Ensemble be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additionally, CYS continues to follow all city, state, and federal COVID safety guidelines, and has outlined the following protocols for attendance at upcoming CYS performances and events:
- Vaccination required: All audience members and event attendees currently eligible to receive an approved COVID-19 vaccine must show proof of vaccination prior to entering any CYS performance or event.
- Mask and Face coverings: Face coverings are required for all individuals attending a CYS performance or event.
- Risk: Audience members and event attendees understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public space where people gather together. Individuals who attend a CYS performance or event voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
- Compliance: We appreciate your understanding and compliance with Chicago Youth Shakespeare's protocols for attendance at performances and events this season. We will continue to update this page regularly, and also notify audiences of any changes to our COVID Safety Policy & Protocols.
