COVID-19 Guidelines for Attendance – Indoor Concerts

The health and safety of audiences, orchestra members, staff, volunteers and the entire San Diego community remain top priority for The San Diego Symphony. Through close consultation with local public health officials, the Symphony has implemented the following policies for attending indoor performances from January through May 2022.

All patrons attending an indoor San Diego Symphony performance are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and present proof of full vaccination.

“Fully vaccinated” is defined by the Center for Disease Control as being at least 14 days after the receipt of the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (such as the currently available Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna) or one dose of a single-dose vaccine (like Johnson & Johnson).

Acceptable proof of vaccination is 1) the physical COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card issued to the patron at the time of vaccination, 2) a photograph/image of the patron’s COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, or 3) a digital vaccination record. All residents of California may request a digital vaccination record at

Patrons attending indoor performances also must wear masks throughout the performance as an additional safety measure, regardless of vaccination status.

The San Diego Symphony’s Jacobs Masterworks and Chamber Music series are intended for fully vaccinated audiences age 5 and older. We regret that at this time we are unable to welcome patrons under the age of 12 who are not fully vaccinated.

All documents will be checked by venue operations staff before patrons will be admitted to the theatre or event space. The San Diego Symphony reserves the right to deny admission to any patron who does not provide the necessary documentation or follow any COVID-related policy.

If you will not be fully vaccinated by the date of your planned visit, you may return your tickets for a credit on your account or request a full refund by e-mailing
