COVID-19 Health & Saftey
Current as of May 15, 2022
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 eligable individuals (5 Years+) participating in or attending a Whitby Courthouse Theatre production or function are required to present proof of full vaccination (as defined based on the type of vaccine recieved, the last of which being at least 14 days prior to arrival) using a government-issued vaccine certificate with a QR-code or a medical exemption certificate with QR code issued by the Province of Ontario.
Masks and Face Coverings
All vstors 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 conditions, while other protections are maintained, subject to the comfortability and agreeance of the individuals involved.
Visitors are required to undergo passive screening unpon arrival to a Whitby Courthouse Theatre function.
Enhanced cleaning protocols are undertaken before, during, and following all rehearsals or in-person events. Including sanitizing hard surfaces, areas, and items that are likely to be touched, and other strengthened cleaning measures undertaken by both Whitby Courthouse Theatre, and the Town of Whitby.
Hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves are provided for use.
Throughout the pandemic, we have used various tools to keep our volunteers and patrons safe. While these particular tools are no longer being used, or have been modified, we used, and can use, these measures as necessary, to keep people safe:
- Gathering Buffers
- Rapid Antigen Testing
- Expanded Active-Screening
- Expanded Masking requirements
- Expanded Social Distancing requirements
