Updated Aug 26th, 2021 vaccine and testing requirements
Kranzberg Arts Foundation (KAF) and all affiliated venues will continue to follow the guidance and mandates set forth by public health and our local government. Please see St. Louis City Guidelines effective 7/26/21: As COVID-19 hospitalizations rise and the Delta variant spreads, the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County will require masks to be worn in indoor public places and on public transportation beginning Monday. Exceptions will include people who are seated in a restaurant or bar eating and drinking and individuals with disabilities that prevent them from putting on or removing face coverings. Wearing masks outdoors, especially in group settings, will be strongly encouraged.
Alongside City and County health departments, Kranzberg Arts Foundation stresses the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine. It is the safest and best way for both protecting against SARS-CoV-2 and limiting the spread of the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vaccines have been shown to reduce hospitalizations due to COVID-19 by 87% percent. A list of where to find a vaccine near you can be found on the City COVID-19 Vaccine Information website and County’s stlcorona.com
