COVID-19 Safety Policies – Updated August 2021

In light of the surge in Delta variant COVID-19 infections, Hudson Hall is phasing in stricter venue and workplace safety rules effective immediately.

Please note, Hudson Hall’s COVID-19 policies are subject to change without notice.

Masks are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status. All visitors are asked to maintain physical distancing of six feet. Masks may only be removed at sponsor-level tables when eating or drinking.

Ticket Holders: Hudson Hall requires all ticket holders attending live, in-person events, as well as performers, staff and volunteers, to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. For events designed for families and youth, unvaccinated children under 12 may attend. For the safety of the community, we are not making exceptions for people unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons. Please note, we do not accept negative COVID tests in lieu of vaccination.

Proof of vaccination may include your CDC COVID-19 Vaccine Card, a photo or photocopy of the card, or your Excelsior Pass. Please also be prepared to show a valid government issued proof of identity, such as a driver’s license, upon entry.

Visitors to the 1st Floor Galleries: At this time, proof of vaccination is not required for entry to the first-floor galleries. All visitors are required to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Staff: Hudson Hall staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated. We highly recommend everyone who is eligible get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families, and our community.

Hudson Hall is currently operating at 50% capacity. Beginning September 1, 2021, Hudson Hall will begin operating at 33% capacity for all ticketed events.

Hudson Hall’s modern HAVC system is outfitted with MERV 13 filters, with industrial air handlers that draw on fresh air for heating and cooling.

NOTE: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present, and Hudson Hall cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit. Those visiting Hudson Hall do so at their own risk of such exposure.


Metered parking can be found on Warren Street, or in two municipal parking lots on the 300 block. An accessible entrance and accessible parking is located off City Hall Place. If you plan to attend a Hudson Hall event and need special assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us.
