Performing arts audiences

More great news! New York State released new pandemic guidelines April 2 for arts performances and audience capacity — including student music, dance, and theatre. We know it’s been frustrating to wait for the protocols; the state has different guidance, issued at different times, for different types of activities.
We are actively working through the size and ticketing details for each Nazareth performance now. The state sets varying maximums based on the size of the venue. The maximum is 33 percent of capacity or up to 100 attendees indoors (whichever is less), and up to 33 percent or 200 attendees at outdoor venues. The totals are exclusive of employees, talent/performers, contractors, and vendors.
Due to the venue-specific guidelines, we cannot guarantee at this time any specific number of visitors per student. We are reviewing the details for each planned performance and developing registration and ticketing processes so that we can meet the guidelines and welcome audiences. We will share the details as soon as they are available.
All campus guests must follow Nazareth’s visitor policy, meaning:
  • Register in advance. As noted above, we are currently working out the registration and ticketing process.
  • Online screening. On the day of the performance, you'll get an email with a link to fill out a visitor COVID-19 screening online, prior to arrival on campus. If your screening clears you to come to campus, you'll immediately see a personal green badge QR code on your screen, which stays available all day.
  • Kiosk. Show your QR code at any kiosk on campus (list). (Printable kiosk map.)
  • Safety. Follow all current health and safety protocols, including wearing a mask and maintaining 6-foot distancing.
We are looking forward to inviting in-person audiences for our many student performing arts activities!

Vaccine for ages 16 and up

Vaccine appointments opened today to all state residents (including students at colleges in the state) ages 16 and older. For appointments, check the Monroe County vaccine webpage or the Finger Lakes region’s appointment finder (which includes pharmacies). You also can check the state website or call the state hotline, 833-697-4829. New appointments continue to be added on a rolling basis. When scheduling your appointment locally, use your Nazareth or local address, indicating that you currently reside in New York state.
If you will be leaving town at the end of the semester, pay attention to timelines when scheduling. Pfizer vaccine requires a second shot 3 weeks later, typically scheduled at the same location. The second Moderna shot is 4 weeks later. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires one dose, however the J&J vaccine has limited availability.
Here is a recording of Monday’s panel presentation and Q&A on COVID-19 vaccination, including appointment tips, vaccine research, myths and facts, and managing any side effects, offered by multiple staff from our Health and Counseling Center and Nazareth faculty from public health, nursing, chemistry/biochemistry, and social work.
