Effective September 1, 2021, The Weinberg Center is taking the following steps to prioritize the health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers and performers as we welcome audiences back to the theater this Fall.
PROOF OF VACCINATION OR NEGATIVE COVID TEST
Patrons must present a photo ID and proof they meet the CDC definition of being fully vaccinated at the time of entry into our theater. For those unable to be vaccinated due to certain medical conditions, age or closely held religious beliefs, proof of a negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours on the day of the performance is required to be admitted. Children under 2 are exempt and for children ages 2 to 12, the only requirement is to wear a mask.
Patrons who are unable to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID -19 test at the door will not be admitted.
Masks will be required for all audience members, staff and volunteers regardless of vaccination status and no concessions will be sold during this time to encourage patrons to remain masked.
The vaccination and mask requirements will be in effect until October 31, 2021 and are subject to change. We are actively monitoring conditions and recommendations from national, state, local and CDC officials and will continue to update our policies as circumstances require.
If any patron does not feel safe with the guidelines when their event approaches, we will gladly refund their ticket purchase up to 48 hours before an event. For those patrons who purchased tickets prior to the implementation of this policy, if this negatively impacts your decision to attend, full ticket refunds are available. Please email our Box Office Manager, Jef Cliber, at [email protected] or contact the box office at 301-600-2828.
HEALTH & SAFETY THEATER IMPROVEMENTS
The following improvements have been made to our theater to ensure the wellbeing of our audiences, staff and performers.
- Ultraviolet lights and Hepa filters have been installed in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning systems. These systems have been proven 99.9% effective in removing airborne viruses such as COVID-19.
- Touchless paper and soap dispensers have been installed throughout the building.
- Hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout the lobby areas.
- Automatic door openers have been installed in the front doors, so patrons do not need to touch handles.
- Automatic light sensors have been installed in the bathrooms.
- The theater will be cleaned and sanitized after every performance.
If you don’t feel well, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 or been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please stay home.
PLEASE NOTE: These protocols currently in place are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19. While we will provide the most up-to-date public health procedures to improve patron safety, they are not an absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Patrons assume their own risk by entering the facility.
