Welcome Back to Stanford Live

Your health and safety are our top priorities. Please be assured that Stanford Live is following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Santa Clara County, and the state of California for increased health and safety procedures.

The following policies are based on the current state, local, and university guidance we have available to us. This page will be updated if policies change due to further guidance from state, county, and university officials on upcoming events. Visit our FAQ page to learn more.


Health & Safety Protocols


Touch-less ticket scanning

Tickets will be emailed to you and scanned on your phone at point of entry.

Face coverings

Based on local COVID-19 metrics being met, the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and Stanford University have updated their masking requirements. Stanford University guidelines now state that masks are no longer required, but are strongly recommended. We encourage you to continue wearing masks for the comfort of our patrons, staff, and artists.

Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test

After June 5, 2022 proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will no longer be required. This policy is subject to change. 


Please Note

While we are taking measures to enhance the safety of our patrons and employees, an inherent risk of exposure to and infection with COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, and a visit to a Stanford Live venue may still pose a risk to your safety. By visiting Stanford Live, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure of COVID-19. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in removal from the venue.
