NEW Covid-19 Health and Safety Protocols in Place at SLAM

Updated as of 8/17/2021

STREB remains deeply committed to the health and safety of our visitors, artists, students, and staff.  As we have since March 2020, we have continued to put into place preventative measures to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19 based on the latest science, data, guidance, recommendations, and policies from local, state, federal and world health organizations.

In accordance with Mayor de Blasio’s Executive Order requiring Proof of Vaccination in order to enter performance venues and fitness spaces, as of Monday, August 16th 2021, STREB requires everyone entering SLAM to show Proof of Vaccination for admittance into SLAM. You may show your proof via NY State’s Excelsior Pass, NYC Covid Safe, or by showing your CDC issued vaccination card along with a photo ID. Children under 12 who are not yet eligible for a vaccination may enter SLAM after completing a health screening form, and must remain masked at all times. 

If you are unable to be vaccinated due to a documented qualifying disability or sincerely held religious belief, you must contact STREB in writing to request a reasonable accommodation by sending an email to with subject line “Vaccination Exemption Request”. Sending an email does not constitute confirmation of receipt or approval of an accommodation. STREB will assess whether you may be eligible for an exemption, and you may be required to submit more information which will be held confidential in accordance with, and to the extent required by, applicable law, regulations, and guidance. You must receive an approved notice of accommodation with further instructions in writing before you are admitted.

Additionally, we will continue to require everyone to: stay home if you are experiencing any sickness or symptoms (for cancellations within 24 hours of your expected attendance, call 718.384.6491); wear masks at all times while in SLAM, practice regular and proper hand washing hygiene, and distance when possible.

STREB may, in its sole discretion, deny admission or remove any patron who does not comply with our policies without refund or credit. Thank you for your consistent understanding, patience and empathy with our staff as we continue to navigate the ever-evolving data and know that, in accordance with updated information, these polices may change.

Please continue to check this page for the latest updates and policies.

THANK YOU for doing your part in helping to keep everyone in our community safe.
