Safety and Health Policies

Spruce Peak Arts is committed to the health and safety of all our patrons, staff, and volunteers. Effective now, all patrons (ages 5 and over) must wear a mask and must be vaccinated or show proof of negative COVID -19 test*.

Please take a moment to review our safety guidelines.

When you visit the theatre, you will notice that we have taken steps to ensure your health and safety.

*Vaccinations Required
You must be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine to attend a show. Be ready to show proof of vaccination at the time of entry into the theatre with your valid ticket. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date you are attending must be:

  • at least 14 days after your second dose of the same FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine
    or
  • at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID-19 vaccine

*If You Cannot Be Vaccinated
Those who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief must provide proof of at least one of the following:

  • negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance

You may present proof of vaccination or a negative test on paper or a smartphone. Click here to view Vermont Department of Health website on places to obtain tests.

At Home Rapid Antigen Tests
At home rapid antigen tests are only for those who are fully vaccinated and who want to protect themselves and others. According to the Center for Disease Control “Self-tests may be used if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed or potentially exposed to an individual with COVID-19. Even if you don’t have symptoms and have not been exposed to an individual with COVID-19, using a self-test before gathering indoors with others can give you information about the risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. This is especially important before gathering with unvaccinated children, older individuals, those who are immunocompromised, or individuals at risk of severe disease.”

Masks
Your mask must cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly around your face and chin. Neck gaiters, open-chin bandanas, and masks with vents or exhalation valves are not acceptable at this time.

Social Distancing Standards
Please be aware of the space between yourself and other patrons when you enter or exit the theatre for any reason. Pay attention to signage and reminders to guide you.

Hand Sanitizing Stations and Hand Washing
Make sure to use hand sanitizer as you enter the building and theatre as needed, to keep surfaces free from germs, especially if you have touched your face. Make sure to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds after using the restroom.

Health Checks
Please be sure you are healthy before entering the building. If you have a fever or any symptoms of illness, please stay home. Our staff is also staying healthy for your care as well, any staff with signs of illness is not permitted to work.

Cleaning Procedures
Throughout the day, common areas and touchpoints are routinely cleaned and sanitized, including all doors and handrails. We vacuum with HEPA filtered vacuums which are proven to trap 99.9% of airborne particles.
