Health and Community Caretaking

BAX closely follows guidelines and mandates from the CDC, New York State, and the NYC Department of Health and Department of Education. 


If you or your associates (child, renters, dancers, actors, visitors, etc) experience any of the following, please refrain from attending activities in the BAX Building: fever, muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, new rashes/sores, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, persistent cough, or other severe cold- or flu-like symptoms. Your care and attention to your own health is also care and attention to our community at large. 


COVID-19 Community Care 


At this time, masks are optional at BAX and strongly encouraged during performances (with some exceptions in which they may be required). Vaccination continues to be recommended but proof is no longer required for the public. Masks are available at our front desk for anyone who needs one.


BAX is pro-vaccination and also realizes that the scope and implementation of many public health policies leave much to be desired in terms of equity for communities of color and persons with disabilities, many of whom have been the first to be threatened and too often the last to be protected. We are committed to working at the intersection of equity and safety in adapting to the evolving landscape of health and safety concerns.
