Safety Guidelines

Theater J is committed to the health and safety of our patrons, our artists, and our staff. All activity at Theater J and within the EDCJCC will continue to be in accordance with regulations from the DC government and CDC.

We will continue to incorporate the newest guidance, research, and regulations into our planning, and will update you as guidelines change.

Will I be required to wear a mask?

All patrons in the Goldman Theater are required to wear masks covering their nose and mouth on Thursday evening and Saturday matinee performances. Masks are not required for the other performances but they are recommended.  Masks are optional but encouraged in the Q Street and 16th Street lobbies, hallways, and other public spaces. Theater J front-of-house staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks.

Is proof of vaccination required to attend a performance?

As of September 1, 2022, the Edlavitch DCJCC will not be requiring proof of vaccination to enter the building or attend a performance. All staff members are still required to be vaccinated, and we encourage everyone to talk to their primary care provider to ensure they are up-to-date on the latest vaccinations.
