Protective measures to mitigate the spread of Covid remain in place for all of our venues and performances.
[EDIT – April 5, 2022]
Gathering indoors in large groups remains risky without appropriate mitigation protocols so the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra continues to require Proof of Vaccination (checked at the door – wristbands provided). The ASO also requires that masks be worn at all times within Maryland Hall.
The ASO has successfully held live in-person performances with full capacity throughout the fall. By adhering to these safety protocols throughout we have held these performances safely without reports of occurrences of the spread of Covid.
Since the pandemic began in early 2020, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra has successfully and consistently taken steps to ensure health and safety. As we continue to Celebrate our 60th Anniversary Season amidst an ongoing pandemic we will continue to do so. All ASO staff and musicians are fully vaccinated. The ASO will continue to require all audience members to show proof of vaccination and to wear masks for all our indoor concerts at Maryland Hall, until further notice.
The health and safety of our family of musicians, staff, board, and audience is our highest priority. We want everyone to feel comfortable attending our performances, knowing that 100% of the people in the venue are vaccinated and masked, providing the best possible protection.
Some reminders on how you can help
- Please do not attend an event if you are feeling unwell, have a temperature, or have been knowingly exposed to COVID-19.
- Please bring and wear a mask; face coverings are required to be worn inside Maryland Hall at all times.
- Please bring either your vaccination card or pre-load your digital vaccine card on the Clear app (for more information on Clear please follow the link above to our website).
- Please do your best to social distance from others when possible.
Providing Proof Of Vaccination
- Remember to bring your proof of vaccination!
- Please plan to arrive early. Vaccination checks take time.
- Load your Vaccination Status on a digital app like Clear
- Bring your Card (or take a photo on your phone)
About the Clear app (recomended)
Prior to arriving at the theatre for your selected performance, we recommend downloading the Clear app for your smartphone and pre-loading your vaccination status for the fastest entry time.
Scan the QR code below with your smartphone’s camera app and click the link it generates to be taken to the download page for the Clear app. Once downloaded, you need to “Add My Vaccination” to the “Digital vaccine card” which will confirm your identity through photo ID and verify your vaccination status through scanning your physical card or confirming with your healthcare provider.
In the app, do NOT click “Create Your Health Pass”, which is the first thing at the top. You need to scroll down to the “Digital vaccine card”. Please watch this instructional video if you have questions on how to add your vaccination card to the Clear app.
If you have pre-loaded your vaccination status through the Clear app, all you will need to do is pull it up on your phone when you arrive and show us prior to entering the theatre. You can also bring your physical vaccination card with you. If you bring your card please note that we will also ask to see your photo ID to confirm your identity.
You will receive a wristband after your vaccination status has been confirmed, providing peace of mind for all patrons in the theatre. You will need to show proof of vaccination every time you attend an Annapolis Symphony Orchestra concert until further notice.
Please wear your mask as you arrive in close proximity to others even outside the building and continue to wear them throughout the event. Masks must cover the nose and mouth, fit securely under the chin, and fit snugly around the sides of your face.
We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to showtime for your comfort and ease. We will maintain recommended social distancing guidelines and do our best to seat everyone as quickly as possible.
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in following our COVID-19 Safety Protocols, as your safety and comfort are our #1 priority. If you have any questions regarding any of this information please email us or give us a call at 410-263-0907.
