Health & Safety Guidelines

Health and Safety header 2.jpg

Hampton Coliseum is excited to welcome back guests to live entertainment in a safe and healthy environment. For the safety and well-being of our guests and staff, additional guidelines are in effect based upon requirements established by the Centers for Disease Control, Virginia Department of Health, State of Virginia, and City of Hampton. Currently, the decision to require masks, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test upon entry to an event is at the discretion of the promoter and/or artist of each event. If a show does have specific entry requirements, these policies will also be listed on the event's show page.

We have taken additional health and safety measures to protect our guests. However, there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By entering the Hampton Coliseum, you knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
