The TD Toronto Jazz Festival and COVID-19

Our covid-19 policies for attendees

The Toronto Downtown Jazz Society (TDJS), producers of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival (Festival), is following Health Canada, Public Health Ontario, and Toronto Public Health guidelines, and implementing recommendations to protect the health of our audiences, artists, staff and community members.

Please note that requirements and protocols, such as vaccination, are subject to change, so be sure to check back closer to the event day for the latest information.

Before You Arrive

Before your arrival at the TD Toronto Jazz Festival, we ask that you:

•  Review the most up to date Public Health Guidelines
•  Review the COVID self-screening poster

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, please stay home.

Face Mask Policy

In accordance with the Government of Ontario lifting mandatory mask mandates for the Province, and with the City of Toronto’s motion CC41.1 lifting mask mandates in the City, as of March 21 2022 TDJS will no longer require face masks to be worn by audiences at our shows and in our venues.  (Note:  venues such as Koerner Hall and Meridian Hall set their own policies.)  Though the mandates were lifted, the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health strongly recommends wearing masks in indoor areas of public settings.

The choice to wear a mask is optional and at the discretion of each individual.

Proof of Vaccination

There is no general requirement for attendees at Festival venues to have received full COVID-19 vaccination.

Physical Distancing

Though physical distancing in common areas is no longer required, we do recommend that, for the comfort and safety of all patrons, you practice social distancing in lineups for things such as food and beverage when it is feasible and reasonable to do so.

Hand Sanitizing

Hand sanitizer is provided in key locations throughout the Festival footprint and there are hand washing facilities in all bathrooms on site.
