Reopening FAQ

What if I was recently vaccinated?

We are requiring that you be at least 14 days past the second dose of the two dose vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna) or 14 days past your dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. If you’re still inside this 14-day period, please also come with a negative COVID-19 test.

Where do I go for a COVID-19 test? Can I use an at home test?

Rapid COVID-19 Antigen tests are available at most pharmacies throughout the greater Philadelphia / NJ areas, and most urgent care sites. Please note that these generally require an appointment in advance. At home tests will not be accepted.

Do I have to prove that I’m vaccinated every time I come to the Arden?

Yes. To protect the privacy of our audience members, we are not going to keep copies of our patrons’ vaccination records.

What kind of mask can I wear?

Standard reusable or disposable masks and face shields can be used while you’re at the Arden. Masks with a valve, gaiters, scarves, etc. are not permissible. We will be happy to provide you with a disposable mask if needed.
