General Covid Protocols
COVID Safety Protocol
Updated September 1, 2021
As we return to live-theatre productions, the safety of our audiences, students, artists, and staff is our first priority. We continue to follow the guidance of the CDC and the Washington State Department of Health and update our practices and plans as circumstances and guidelines change. We follow a universal masking policy and require all patrons over that age of 2 years wear a mask while in the building. As of November 1, SCT staff are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. With the beginning of our season in February 2022, we will require:
- Proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test for those who are eligible and cannot receive the vaccination
- A valid ticket to the performance
- Photo ID
All events will continue to follow State and CDC guidelines. Updates to our safety protocols will be updated here and communicated via email with our ticket holders.
SCT has extended our ticket exchange policy to include fee-free exchanges for all ticket holders. Learn more about the policy here.
Will vaccinations be required to attend a production?
Yes, all those eligible for vaccination must show proof that they are fully vaccinated at the time of their entry into the theatre. (“Fully vaccinated” is defined as at least 14 days passed since receiving either the second dose of FDA- or WHO-authorized double-dose vaccines or the sole dose of authorized single-dose vaccines.) Patrons unable to be vaccinated because of a medical condition, and/or sincerely held religious belief must provide results of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of their ticketed performance.
Audience members not yet old enough for vaccine eligibility are not required to provide proof of a recent negative Covid test.
How are you keeping audiences safe?
Proof of vaccination (or a negative Covid-19 test) and masks will be required to enter SCT. Additionally, SCT H/VAC units are operating with MERV13 filters and circulating 100% fresh air. We continue to follow and the State’s guidelines on large in-door events, which may include social distancing and audience capacity limitations.
