As part of the larger Bard College community, our driving principle is to operate with a duty of care for all—our artists, audiences, students, and staff—alike.
In order to share performances with as many audience members as possible, we ask that you read the following information and commit to participating in our community of care.
Protocols may change. Please refer back to this page and to Fisher Center email communications for the most up-to-date guidance and policies. We will continue to assess our COVID protocols and guidelines, as well as consistently monitor new developments, recommendations, and mandates from the CDC and New York State government.
While we understand that there are varying levels of audience expectations when it comes to safety protocols, we appreciate your understanding that Bard College and the Fisher Center have carefully reviewed and implemented these policies with the intent to be adaptable and compliant, regardless of any new waves or variants, minimize risk, and allow for the continuation of our programs while keeping our artists, audience, staff, and greater Bard community of students and faculty safe.
