Covid Guidelines


The health and safety of our Spring Soirée guests is important to The Family Center. As a healthcare provider, we put the health and safety of all constituents first. In addition, the inclusive nature of Family Center events means that some vulnerable members of our community will be present to enjoy the evening. The policy below is intended to keep everyone safe and healthy during The Family Center's 2022 Spring Soirée.

Spring Soirée guests are required to show photo ID and proof of two vaccine doses, except for those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Tribeca Rooftop staff will be checking vaccine cards at the door on April 28th. Guests who cannot produce verification will unfortunately be turned away.

The Family Center commits to regularly updating this page and also communicating with all registered guests (via email and phone) about any changes to Spring Soirée precautionary Covid regulations.

With this policy in place, masks are not required for the Spring Soirée at Tribeca Rooftop. The Family Center welcomes guests to wear masks at their own discretion, for their comfort and safety.
