State Theatre of Ithaca Covid Safety Protocols Remain in Effect

The State Theatre of Ithaca is still requiring proof of vaccination for all patrons, staff, artists and crew for admittance to all shows and events at downtown Ithaca’s last remaining historic performing arts venue. Results from a negative COVID test are NOT currently accepted for entry for any individuals. In addition, masks are still required to be worn at all times while at the venue and in any common areas. You may pull your mask down when actively eating or drinking only. Currently, booster shots are not a requirement to be considered vaccinated for admittance.

The State Theatre is adhering to guidance from The Tompkins County Health Department. On Friday, February 25th 2022, the health department announced, “Tompkins County’s mask advisory will stay in effect as Tompkins County is currently listed as having a “high” community COVID-19 level under the CDC’s new framework. The CDC announced updated community level metrics related to new COVID-related hospital admissions over the past seven days and the percentage of hospital beds occupied by COVID patients, as well as new COVID cases per 100,000 people over the previous seven days,” said the Health Department. “TCHD continues to report local data, including hospitalizations. Cayuga Health System continues to report capacity at Cayuga Medical Center.”

The State Theatre of Ithaca asks all patrons to bring their vaccination card (or a photo of it) and/or their NYS Excelsior Pass, along with a corresponding state or federal ID for entry.

As a responsible business, it is our duty to protect the health of our staff, performers and patrons in our iconic and historic indoor space. We encourage anyone who has yet to be vaccinated to get their shots as soon as possible. You can find a vaccination site near you at: vaccinefinder.org

Thanks for continuing to do your part and please stay safe.

This event will be a phone-free experience. Use of phones, smart watches and accessories, will not be permitted in the performance space.

Upon arrival at the venue, all phones, smart watches and accessories will be secured in individual Yondr pouches that will be opened at the end of the event. Guests maintain possession of their devices at all times, and can access them throughout the event only in designated Phone Use Areas within the venue. All devices will be re-secured in Yondr pouches before returning to the performance space.

All pouches and equipment will be sanitized prior to individual use. The Yondr staff is trained and required to follow safety guidelines and hygiene protocols to practice social distancing, minimal contact and wear required personal protective equipment. Anyone seen using a device (phone, smart watch or accessories) during the performance will be escorted out of the venue by security. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free experience."

Hasan Minhaj was the host and creator of the weekly comedy show Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj that premiered on Netflix in October 2018. The series explored the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity through his unique comedic voice. The show received a 2019 Peabody Award, a 2019 Primetime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Motion Design,” and was recognized for a 2020 Television Academy Honor.

In 2017, Minhaj earned rave reviews for his performance hosting the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner, and for his one-hour Netflix comedy special Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, which earned him a 2018 Peabody Award. A first generation American, Minhaj joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as a correspondent in November 2014, where he was Jon’s last hire.
