Guild Hall Covid-19 Safety Protocols updated 8/15/2022
The Episcopal Actors’ Guild is a fully vaccinated facility. Our entire staff is fully vaccinated and boosted. Everyone entering Guild Hall must be FULLY vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated for Covid-19 two weeks (14 days) after you have received a second dose in a two-dose vaccine series or two weeks (14 days) after you have received a single-dose vaccine. We cannot make any exceptions. You will be asked to provide in-person proof of vaccination and present a photo ID at the door and must wear a well-fitted, high-filtration mask (such as an N95, KN95, KF94, or well-fitted surgical mask) at all times while in the space.
EAG's Executive Committee voted on September 26, 2022 to extend our current Covid protocols through at least October 31, 2022. The board will review our protocols again in late October and reserves the right to extend them again at that time.
