Masks are required unless briefly eating or drinking

Patrons will be required to eat and drink outside of the theatre. No food or beverages are allowed in the theatre.
As of September 13 in Washington state, masks are required for everyone ages 5+ at outdoor events with 500 or more people and continue to be required in public indoor spaces.
The indoor masking order applies to all indoor spaces that are open to the public, including gyms, exercise facilities, auditoriums, stadiums, retail, grocery stores, government buildings, and other businesses and places where members of the public can enter freely, and applies to all persons in these facilities, including those practicing or playing recreational sports.

The highest quality masks, in order, are:

  • Certified N95, KN95, or KF94 masks. These are disposable, not available in children’s sizes, and more expensive.
  • Surgical masks that have been tested to meet a national standard (ASTM 2/3). These are also disposable.
  • Cloth masks that have a double layer. These can be washed and re-used.

I am fully vaccinated and was exposed to COVID-19. What should I do?

Should there be a positive case of COVID reported during a time in which you were at the theatre, an ArtsWest COVID Safety Officer will contact appropriate parties to notify them of the positive case.
If you are fully vaccinated and have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-
19 (within 6 feet of the person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period), you should seek testing 5-7 days after exposure, and monitor for symptoms for 14 days after exposure. You do not need to quarantine or isolate unless you develop symptoms.
If you test negative, continue to monitor for symptoms for 14 days after exposure.
If you have symptoms within 14 days after exposure, separate yourself from others
(isolate) while waiting for your test result.
If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate and follow the instructions
at kingcounty.gov/nextsteps and please notify the ArtsWest Covid Safety Officer at athenad@artswest.org.
