ArtsQuest – COVID-19 Protocols

Last updated 11/18/21

At ArtsQuest, the health and safety of everyone who supports, attends, works and volunteers at our events and programs is our top concern. As an organization, we have been closely monitoring all developments in regard to the coronavirus and its spread. We will continue to follow the latest CDC, state and local health guidelines. Additionally, we have placed signage at the entrance to our facilities, as well as throughout our venues stating the latest recommendations. Additionally, we have upgraded our HVAC air filtration system and will maintain heightened cleaning of the facility.

The CDC currently recommends, in order to maximize protection from COVID-19 and prevent possibly spreading it to others, that all persons (regardless of vaccination status) wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission. This currently includes Northampton County. Wearing a face covering – over both the nose and mouth – is recommended in our facilities, unless seated and actively eating or drinking.

  • Everyone 2 years of age or older who is not fully vaccinated should wear a mask in indoor public places.
  • In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings.
    • In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
  • If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.

PLEASE NOTE: We are working closely with artist management and some events/tours may have additional measures/procedures in place. Please check the individual web page listing for any event-specific requirements.

Any person experiencing fever or any other possible coronavirus symptoms should not visit or use any of ArtsQuest’s facilities or campuses. Any person visiting must follow appropriate ArtsQuest, state and federal guidelines. As is the risk of being anywhere outside your home, your presence at an ArtsQuest facility or campus may expose you or others to coronavirus. By virtue of being on our property and given this notice, you knowingly and voluntarily agree (i) to fully assume all coronavirus, health and other personal injury risks when you decide to visit ArtsQuest facilities and campuses and (ii) your use of ArtsQuest facilities, property, equipment, or services shall waive and release ArtsQuest from all coronavirus-related and other personal injury claims, liabilities, demands and damages that you or any of your guests or minor children might assert. If you disagree, please refrain from visiting or using ArtsQuest facilities or campuses until further notice. Thank you.
