As Covid evolves, we want to be transparent about our health and wellness policy for cast and crew members. After consulting with multiple doctors, we have been advised that to best protect performers, volunteers, staff and audiences, everyone involved in a production should be vaccinated against Covid and Flu.
Rehearsals will continue and shows will not be canceled because of a covid or flu outbreak. Cast members are encouraged to wear masks backstage if an outbreak does occur. It is important to note that if anyone has fever above 99, they should stay home until free of fever for 24 hours. If the show is running and a principle has a slight fever, they will be isolated in an area so they can perform. It will be up to each individual to disclose any medical information to the director or to fellow cast members.
ACT recognizes and respects everyone’s personal beliefs on this public health issue, however, after multiple shutdowns, we have learned that to operate successfully in our community we must have a policy that makes sense and one that is similar to schools, private businesses and other entertainment venues. This policy is subject to change at any time based on health recommendations from the CDC and/or our medical advisory team here at ACT.
Anyone who does not agree with this policy should decline to participate.
