Safety Guidelines
In order to ensure the safety of our honorees, artists, guests, and staff, The Kitchen mandates that all staff, artists, and audiences be fully vaccinated. All guests will need to show proof of full vaccination plus valid identification upon arrival at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Masks are highly recommended. We encourage all guests to test ahead of the event and ask that you stay home if you are feeling sick. Note, The Kitchen continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and adjusts its safety protocols as needed in order to keep all our community safe. Safety guidelines for this event may shift and will take into consideration both city and state recommendations, as well as The Kitchen’s own organizational code of conduct.
