COVID-19 Protocols
in Venues and Facilities

We’re committed to providing a safe environment for our visitors to Centrum programs (ticket holders, workshop participants, faculty, volunteers, etc.). As a result, guests (ticket holders, workshop participants, faculty, volunteers, etc.) are required to show proof of being “up to date” with COVID-19 vaccinations. As of now, this means showing proof of the first booster shot, if qualified by age to receive the booster. Please know that masks are still being required while in the Wheeler Theater for all events. The use of masks is recommended everywhere else on the campus. Case counts in Jefferson County are rising steeply again–we will monitor this and update our policy as needed. Centrum is making no exceptions for daily testing, medical exemptions, etc. We are, instead, offering online enrollment in most workshops for those who cannot or wish not to receive the vaccine.


Workshop and/or Classroom facilities

Centrum’s on-campus learning programs are open—until further notice—only to vaccine verified participants, per above. All Centrum on-campus workshop, faculty, and/or classroom participants are therefore required to show proof of full and “up to date” vaccination for COVID at the time of registration. Wearing of masks is recommended, and remains required in some indoor facilities, such as the Wheeler Theater.


Wheeler Theater and McCurdy Pavilion

Verification of “up to date” COVID-19 vaccinations along with matching photo ID will be required upon entry.  Due to the enclosed nature of the theater, Centrum is continuing to require all audience members to remain masked while in the Wheeler Theater with a mask that fits snugly over the nose and mouth. At this time, we are recommending masks for visitors at McCurdy Pavilion performances. If there are changes in guidelines and/or mandates before concert dates, we will adjust our protocols accordingly.

Masks must also be worn in restrooms and similarly confined and unventilated spaces. Bandanas, gators, scarves, or masks with mesh, holes, and/or valves are not acceptable.

Covid safety information is provided at the time of ticket purchase to all ticket buyers and will be updated as guidelines change.
When purchasing your ticket(s), please make sure to include accurate contact information so we can keep you informed.

Procedures for children

All children aged 5 years and older are also required to show proof of current vaccination. Masking rules dscribed above also apply to childred aged 2 and older. Not all small children are able to comfortably wear a mask for extended periods. Please consider this carefully when making your plans.


Centrum Office

The Centrum office is not open to the public. Centrum staff working or visiting the Fort Worden campus are required to be fully up to date with the COVID vaccine and must wear masks when in common areas or in office spaces when shared with others.
