Covid vaccination or negative test required at the door
Kostume Kult & House of YES have adopted a covid safety policy that will be enforced by our Covid Compliance Team at the door and require all guests to show proof of full vaccination or a negative recent PCR test.
Our commitment to providing our guests a safe and enjoyable experience is more important now than ever before. The highly contagious Delta variant presents a significant risk to the health and safety of our community, where New York City’s test positivity rate has doubled in recent days. For the safety of all, zero exceptions will be made at the door. Please read our policy carefully and prepare before you get there. An express lane is available for guests that prepared.
If you were not vaccinated before July 17, please make plans to schedule a covid test by Wednesday.
