COVID-19 SAFETY POLICY 

 PROTOCOLS FOR USING OR ATTENDING OUR FACILITIES AND VENUES 

Arts Council campus venues include Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts’ Reynolds Place Theatre, Mountcastle Theatre, and galleries – as well as Hanesbrands Theatre. Note that Sawtooth School for Visual Art sets its own policies and protocols.

 

Arts Council continues to require all staff and performers (18 years and older) to be fully vaccinated and up to date on all recommended COVID-19 vaccines. Arts Council strongly encourages all theatre staff and stage crew members to be fully vaccinated. If an exemption is presented for medical or religious reasons, theatre staff and/or crew must provide proof of a negative PCR test twice a week throughout the production.

 

Patrons (18 years and older)* attending events or performances on Arts Council’s campus must 1) show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 OR 2) a negative PCR lab test result from 72 hours prior to the special or ticketed event you wish to attend. CDC defines fully vaccinated as “a person has received their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines” (January 16, 2022). At-home rapid tests will not be accepted. Proof of vaccination can be a physical vaccination card or a photo/scan of the front and back of a vaccination card on a mobile device. *Guests under the age of 18 are not required to show proof of vaccination at this time.

 

As of March 1, 2022, Arts Council has removed its campus-wide mask requirement.

 

If you purchased a ticket for an upcoming event and don’t feel comfortable with the above policies, contact the box office of the organization from which you purchased your ticket.

 

We are committed to doing our part to protect our community from the further spread of COVID-19 and revitalizing our arts and cultural sector that has been greatly impacted from the last year and a half of this pandemic. Our goal is to keep our venues open, our artists employed, and our community safe so that we can enjoy live performances together and continue forward with the reopening of the sector. Our team is working hard to do a challenging job in some very uncertain times. We ask for your help and cooperation in complying with these safety precautions so that we can continue to enjoy live gatherings together.
