Thank you for helping to keep our staff, artists, and patrons safe!
Diversionary’s current Covid-19 policy is to require attendees, staff, and artists to be fully vaccinated. If it has been more than five months since a patron has received their second dose (or one dose of J&J) we also require proof of a booster vaccine. Before entering the premises, all guests will be asked to show proof that they meet the CDC criteria of being completely vaccinated against Covid-19 (vaccination card or photo of card).
