In order for the community to participate safely in activities at the Hopkins Center, we have adopted the following protocols for all Hop events and activities, in accordance with Dartmouth's current guidelines.

  1. Masks are required to be worn by all attendees of indoor events, regardless of vaccination or recent testing status, in accordance with the College's face covering policy. Masks must remain on throughout the Hopkins Center, when entering or exiting a venue, and for the duration of the event. 
  2. At the time of entry, we require that attendees of all Hop events:

    Be fully vaccinated. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their final dose in a COVID-19 vaccine series. Acceptable COVID-19 vaccines are those that received full approval or emergency use authorization by the FDA or those that received or are undergoing assessment for emergency use listing (PDF) by the World Health Organization.


    Have a negative result of a COVID test administered within 72 hours prior to the event start time. Acceptable tests are a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) or RT-PCR viral tests. Rapid antigen or antibody tests are not accepted.


    Be a current Dartmouth student or employee.
  3. Each and every attendee must present proof that they comply with these health screening requirements. The easiest, fastest and most confidential way for members of the public to show compliance is through the Bindle app. This is a free and easy-to-use app adopted by many venues and cultural institutions to confirm individuals comply with health screening protocols.

Please note, active Dartmouth students or employees are not required to use Bindle, however, they must present a valid Dartmouth ID for each Dartmouth attendee at the time of entry.

Any attendee who does not use the Bindle app to demonstrate their compliance with health requirements will be required to provide the following:

  • A paper or digital image of your CDC Vaccination Card OR a paper or digital image of your negative COVID-19 NAAT or PCR viral test taken within 72 hours of the event start time.

    — AND —
  • Photo ID (such as a drivers license or other state or nationally-issued form of identification)

Proof of compliance with our health requirements must be presented every time you attend a Hop event. We are not retaining any record of your vaccination status, test results or health information. Information you present for contact tracing purposes will be retained for 30 days before being erased.

If you are feeling unwell, concerned for your health and safety, or are not able to meet these health requirements, please contact us to discuss your options. All refund requests must be made prior to the start of the event.

These policies are subject to change, and we will make efforts to communicate any changes. The Hopkins Center does not promise or guarantee that all patrons, employees or artists on site are vaccinated or without COVID-19. Unvaccinated and/or contagious individuals may be present as a result of exceptions, fraudulent verification, or checker error. None of these precautions eliminate the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
