Whitby Courthouse Theatre takes the health and safety of our patrons, casts, and crews very seriously. We are thrilled to be welcoming people back to our space. This page contains some of the measures we've taken to keep everybody safe while allowing a return to in-person theatre after nearly two years. This page also contains historical information about our response to COVID-19.
All individuals involved with, or seeing, a Whitby Courthouse Theatre production will be required to present proof of full vaccination (two doses of a Health Canada approved vaccine, the second of which being at least 14 days prior to arrival at the facility) and government-issued photo ID, or a written medical exemption.
All visitors to the facility (both those involved with a production, and those seeing them) will be required to complete a pre-screening questionnaire on the day of their visit before arriving. Various members and production staff will also undertake ongoing screening activities.
Masks and Face Coverings
Casts, crews, volunteers, patrons, and all others, are required to wear a face mask or covering that covers their nose, mouth, and chin at all times. Exceptions apply for cast and crew members under certain strict conditions, while other protections are maintained, subject to the comfortability and agreeance of the individuals involved.
Social Distancing and Cohorting
Casts, crews, and others, will be broken up into cohorts to allow for the removal of face coverings while distanced and in predefined spaces. Visitors to the facility, or those not actively rehearsing or performing in a defined space, will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times.
