Health and Safety at Pointe in Time:
For the safety of guests and artists, PBT requires that all guests be fully vaccinated*. PBT will continue to monitor changing conditions around COVID and will modify the event format if necessary to protect the health and safety of guests and artists. Updated information will be sent to all guests and can also be found at www.pbt.org/gala

In addition, The Westin now has the ability to constantly refresh the air in the ballroom. Their air handling units allow the ballroom’s air to be filtered and replaced 11 times per hour. The units are equipped with MERV 13 filters which are the CDC-recommended filters for combating viruses.

* “Fully vaccinated” means on November 6:

– at least 14 days have passed since a guest’s second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or

– at least 14 days have passed since a guest’s single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. Guests may display proof on a smartphone or present a physical copy. Use of a Digital Vaccination Passport App is also acceptable.

The only exceptions are guests who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical exception or a sincerely held religious belief. For guests who are not able to be vaccinated for one of the reasons listed above, they must provide one of the following instead of evidence of vaccination:

– negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the event start time, or

– negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event start time.
