Health Policies

The health and safety of the League community is of the utmost importance. The League is continually assessing the risks associated with COVID-19, and following the lead of public health officials and input from our community to make the best decisions possible. All updates to League policies will be outlined on this page.

Masks and proof of COVID-19 vaccination are no longer required to attend League classes or enter the building.*

HEalth & safety at the League


Effective Tuesday, November 1, 2022, New York City will no longer require employees of private-sector employers to be vaccinated for COVID-19. In line with this decision, League management and the Board of Control has voted to lift the League’s vaccine requirement on Tuesday, November 1, the same day the city’s mandate is lifted.

The League will continue to monitor and assess how our policy impacts the health and safety of our community and our guidelines remain subject to change based on the guidance of healthcare authorities and the input of the League community, should risks from the COVID-19 virus escalate.

If you feel sick, we ask that you refrain from attending class in-person or visiting the League. If you have recently been exposed to COVID-19 or have questions about whether or not you pose a risk to your instructors or classmates, please see the CDC’s COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation Calculator. Please continue to alert us via our confidential email if you test positive after attending a League class or event, or if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and believe you may have exposed others.

*In some classes, instructors may request that students wear masks in the studio during class hours. Please check the class description for each of your classes to see if your instructors have requested students wear a mask in their studios. If this is an issue for you, please consider signing up for another class.

For questions, please email our confidential COVID-19 hotline.

The CDC's COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation Calculator provides vital, useful information, including what to do if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or if you believe you have been exposed to a person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

We urge all students, instructors, staff, and models to review the information contained in the calculator and keep it in mind in case you happen to need it. This informative tool will help you determine next steps following a positive test or a possible exposure, and can help you to better understand your own risk as well as the most appropriate next steps. This is important information that will help you, and us, continue to keep our entire community safe.
