The Bay’s COVID-19 Policy 

On October 15, 2021, The Bay will reopen with reduced capacity for skate, art, music, and fashion events. We’ve worked diligently over the past year to adapt to our new normal and keep our community safe. We have, and will always, prioritize the health and safety of The Bay community, and our COVID-19 policy is designed with our community in mind.

As we cautiously reopen, we’ll be closely following local, state and CDC guidance in our preventative and COVID protocols. Please note that our COVID-19 policy and safety recommendations can (and will) change according to local/state and federal guidelines. Whenever there is a Directed Health Measure, we’ll be strictly following it. 

To protect the health of our community, face coverings are required at The Bay, regardless of vaccination status –– and our staff is no exception. All Bay staff are vaccinated, but we’ll still be wearing face coverings. 

The Bay is sanitized daily, with particular attention paid to high-contact surfaces. Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the building, and we have disposable masks available for those who have forgotten theirs at home. 

We’ve REALLY missed seeing you at The Bay! As we reopen, please be kind and respectful to one another. We ask that you do your part to protect the health of our community. DO NOT COME TO THE BAY IF:

    • You have fever, chills, cough, or shortness of breath
    • You are experiencing fatigue, muscle aches, headaches, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea
    • You are experiencing a new loss of taste or smell
    • You have had exposure to someone with COVID in the last 10 days
    • You have a pending COVID test
    • You have had a positive COVID test in the past 10 days
    • Anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms

Did you know that the best way to keep our community safe is to get vaccinated? Go to www.vaccines.gov or call 1-800-232-0233 to find a vaccine provider near you. There is no charge for the COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of your immigration status or whether you have health insurance or not. If you’re under 18, you will need your parent/guardian’s permission to get vaccinated.
