Oregon Symphony

Patron Safety

The health and safety of our patrons, musicians, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. The Oregon Symphony is committed to ensuring that you have an exceptional concert experience with policies and procedures for a safe environment for all.

Beginning with the launch of the 2021/22 Season, the Oregon Symphony will return to full audience capacity for live performances inside the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

The Oregon Symphony, in consultation with the Multnomah County Department of Health, has undertaken modifications to comply with current health and safety guidance. Additionally, the Oregon Symphony will require upon entry to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall a proof of full vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test, to attend concerts and events. Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose regimen of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered two weeks or more in advance of the concert or event. A negative COVID-19 test must be taken not more than 72 hours before the concert or event.

  • Proof of Vaccination: Patrons must bring an electronic, photo, or paper copy of their full vaccination card with them to the concert with appropriate ID matching the name on the vaccination card. 
  • COVID-19 Test Result: Patrons must bring an electronic, photo, or paper copy of a negative COVID-19 test result. Please note that test result documentation must be directly from the healthcare provider that performed the test with an appropriate ID matching the name on the COVID-19 test result.
  • Also, in accordance with health and safety guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority/Public Health Division, a face covering is required for entry into the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Face coverings must completely cover nose and mouth and have ear loops, or similar, to hold in place. Gaiters and bandanas are not acceptable. Face coverings must be worn at all times except while eating, drinking, or taking oral medications for brief periods. Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted for eating or drinking – masks must be worn between bites and sips.

Please read Oregon Symphony's current audience health and safety policy regarding admittance and attendance.
