IMPORTANT COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT

Dated: December 17, 2021

Beginning Monday, January 3, 2022 all guests to the Simeone Museum that are attending events that include food or drink will be required to provide proof of full COVID vaccination. This policy is being implemented for the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff, and as to maintain compliance with the City of Philadelphia’s December 13 indoor dining mandate.

All guests attending Special Events that serve food or drink must present their proof of vaccination upon entry. Anyone that does present their vaccination card to the museum prior to entry will be denied admittance.

By definition, per the mandate, full vaccination means having received two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

This policy will remain in effect until the indoor dining mandate is ended by the city.

This policy DOES NOT apply to regular museum guests and visitors, as well as people with proof of valid religious or medical exemptions and children under five years and three months.
