The Broward Center is following health and safety guidelines developed in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic that have been informed by guidance of public health officials including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to the guest entry policy, vaccinations are required for staff, volunteers and crew working performances.
Any guest two years of age or older is required to wear a suitable face covering that covers the nose, mouth and chin (rather than gaiters, shields or respirator masks) while inside the venues.
For entry to performances, all guests 12 years of age and older are asked to provide documentation of a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test result conducted within 72 hours prior to the performance, or a negative COVID-19 Antigen test result conducted within 24 hours prior to the performance start time. The test result can be printed or digital (including an email or text message from the test provider displayed on a phone or electronic device), but must clearly reflect the name of the guest, the date of the test, the type of test performed and the negative test result. As an alternative, fully vaccinated guests have the option of presenting documentation of full vaccination with the final dose at least 14 days prior to the performance date. Acceptable documentation may be the original vaccination card, a printed copy of the vaccination card or a digital copy of such card.
