Mr. Smalls COVID-19 Information
Policy update as of April 1st, 2022:
In light of the ongoing decline of COVID-19 cases in Allegheny County, effective Friday, 04/01/22, Mr. Smalls will retire its negative test/proof of vaccination policy except where required by the artist.
Updates will be noted on individual event pages, so please check the show listing at mrsmalls.com for each show’s requirements. If no requirements are specified on a show listing, there are no requirements in place for the show at that time. Check back periodically for any updates as policy requirements may change at the artist or venue discretion at any time.
As Covid continues to pose an endemic threat, we encourage everyone to take reasonable precautions as they see fit. The CDC recommends that unvaccinated people wear masks at all times. We encourage mask-wearing for any patrons who feel the need. And If you feel sick or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, we continue to ask that you prioritize your health and the health of others by staying home.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the local health authorities, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting our establishment, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Mr. Smalls thanks our guests, visiting performers, staff, stage crew, and team members who have complied with our health and safety policies during this time. We will continue to monitor Allegheny County’s community levels as well CDC, state and local health requirements and make adjustments as necessary for community safety.
