COVID-19 SAFETY (Proof of Full Vaccination or Negative COVID-19 Test Required to Attend)

Maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our guests, chefs, and restaurant teams to experience our events is a top priority for the James Beard Foundation. In accordance with San Francisco’s current COVID-19 safety guidance, we require guests to present either proof of a full vaccination sequence including booster dose or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours prior to joining us. You may show the following as proof of vaccination: CDC vaccination card; a photo of a CDC vaccination card; documentation from a healthcare provider; or a digital record proving vaccination status from the state or an approved private company. COVID-19 tests must be conducted by a third party with results delivered electronically to the guest so we may check the name on their ID against the name on the test results. The only at-home rapid antigen test that will be accepted is Binax Now in conjunction with the Navica app, which provides online proctored COVID-19 tests and verifies results. More information on that service can be found here.

We ask that you please continue to wear masks when you are not seated at your table. Please note, this policy is subject to change. Ticket buyers attending the event will be alerted of the final policy in an email at least two (2) days prior to the event date. Thank you for your continued understanding and compliance with these measures for your safety and the safety of those around you.
