Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center announces new health and safety policy ahead of full-house shows for its 15th anniversary season.
As the Adrienne Arsht Center prepares itself for the return of full capacity shows officials have announced the venue will now require all visitors to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry.
Starting Monday, October 5, all guests 12 or older will have to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than three days prior to the performance date, or alternatively show proof of vaccination or a negative, rapid COVID-19 antigen test taken no more than one day prior to the show. Masks will continue to be required for all guests two and up, regardless of their testing or vaccination status.

“We believe this extra layer of precaution, which has been adopted by other Florida venues, will keep our community as safe as possible,” said Johann Zietsman, the center’s president and CEO, in a statement. “Not only does this decision help stop the spread of COVID-19, it also reflects the desires expressed by our audiences, protects the jobs of the artists on stage and the crews behind the curtain, and complies with requirements established by many touring artists coming to the Arsht Center.”
As with its other health and safety measures, the Adrienne Arsht Center has implemented this new policy based on the latest recommendations by the CDC and its own medical advisor from Florida International University Academy Health System, given the rise of COVID-19 cases in the state.
The new requirements will stay in place until further notice, according to the center. Any further policy changes will be sent directly to ticketholders and updated regularly on their website.
