  • Full vaccination status is required for those eligible when participating in our programs (including booster for those eligible).

  • For those ineligible for vaccination, testing is required within 24 hours of the event (rapid antigen or PCR).
  • Although masks are not required, we understand that many people will continue to mask for a variety of reasons. We fully support those who choose to mask and invite all in our community to act in a spirit of non-judgmental kindness as we navigate this landscape together.
  • Please review our COVID-19 on-site event protocols.
  • We, along with our COVID-19 Advisory Team, will continue to monitor case rates in San Francisco and other important factors and respond to the changing circumstances accordingly.
