Surfaces and high touch areas will be wiped down regularly with disinfecting wipes or spray.


New HVAC units were installed at the Apollo within the last 4 years, and they are outfitted with MERV-13 air filters, the industry standard for removing the most viral particulate from the air. They are always running and moving air throughout the lobby, auditorium, and office spaces.


All ticket sales are final. If you are sick and cannot attend the show, please reach out to the box office.


All patrons understand that there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those purchasing tickets and attending Apollo Theater production voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
