The comfort and safety for all attending concerts that the Bowl are our top priority.  Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, we have worked closely with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health to closely align our practices with their current guidance.  Facts and data surrounding the COVID-19 crisis continue to evolve and we expect for State and local guidance to continue to change leading up to the Bowl season.  While, at this time, we cannot predict what requirements will be in place, we can share that our protocols at the end of the 2021 season include masks required for all attendees over the age of 2 and proof of vaccinations for all eligible guests.  Based of current trends, we expect that County requirements may change and we will continue to align our protocols and requirements with the latest County guidance and local requirements continue to evolve.
