COVID-19 SAFETY POLICIES
Ensuring the safety of our visitors, staff, artists and volunteers is our top priority. With your cooperation, we can remain safe, open, and continue to provide inspiring experiences in the arts and humanities.
As of March 14, 2022, face masks are optional at the Arvada Center - including in theatres, studios and classrooms. We ask visitors to respect other patrons, our staff and volunteers who may choose to wear masks.
Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will continue to be required for all indoor seated events through May 2022. Proof of vaccination is still required for adult classes.
We encourage all visitors to continue making responsible decisions about their health, and ask you to stay home if you are feeling sick. Thank you for your continued patience and consideration of our COVID safety policies, and for helping us keep our visitors, staff, performers, volunteers and community healthy.
Thank you to our sponsor SCL Health/Lutheran Medical Center. Visit their website for resources on health, safety and risk assessment.

Patrons attending any indoor seated performance are required to show proof of vaccination before entering the performance space. This includes the Main Stage Theatre (musical theatre), the Black Box Theatre (plays), Jeffrey Siegel concerts, Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra concerts, and any special performances that take place in these venues.
The Arvada Center works closely with Actors’ Equity Association to follow all guidelines and mandates. To keep our work environment safe, all performers are required to be vaccinated. In addition, the Arvada Center has also issued a policy that all staff, volunteers, and internal contractors are required to be vaccinated.
Those individuals who are ineligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine may instead show proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to entering the performance space. This may include a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of your performance start time or or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the performance start time.
You may provide proof of a negative test using an antigen (rapid take-home) test. However, the negative test result must come from a medical platform that shows your name and the date and time the test was taken. A physical take-home test without a date will not be accepted.
Tests for COVID-19 are free. You can use this resource to locate free testing in your area: https://www.hhs.gov/coronavirus/community-based-testing-sites/index.html.
If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms or if you have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you please stay at home. You may contact the Arvada Center Box Office to discuss your ticketing options which may include rescheduling your tickets to a different date, a refund, transferring your funds to a gift certificate, or donating your tickets back to the Arvada Center.
Contact the Box Office at 720-898-7200, or by email.
The COVID-19 vaccines have shown to be the most effective protection against the spread of the virus. By having patrons show proof of vaccination, we are doing our part to remain safe, open, and able to deliver our mission of providing engaging arts, humanities, education, and entertainment.
If you would prefer to miss your performance, you can contact the Arvada Center Box Office to discuss your options which include donating your tickets, transferring your purchase to a gift certificate for future use, or receiving a refund.

Children ages 5 to 11 can show proof of at least an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to enter our indoor seated performances.
Children who are not eligible or cannot be vaccinated must have a negative COVID-19 test to attend a performance. The negative test result must meet the following criteria:
1. We're accepting PCR or antigen (rapid) test results
2. Tests must be taken within 72 hours for PCR, or 6 hours for antigen tests
3. The record must have a name that matches your ID. Children do not need an ID.
4. The test results must have a date and time stamp on them.
Please note that we're not accepting rapid take-home test kits that provide results without any kind of date or time stamp. Your test results must have the date and time you took the test.
All students age 18 and older attending classes for adults starting on or after October 16, 2021 must be fully vaccinated and show proof of vaccination before attending class.
Before your class begins, you will receive an email from an Arvada Center Education staff member who will outline the process for collecting proof of your vaccine.
Effective March 14, masks will be optional in classes and studios for students of any age. We encourage students to continue making responsible decisions about their health, and ask that you stay home if you're feeling unwell.
The Arvada Center Galleries hold the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and artists as the highest priority. All visitors are encouraged to reserve a free ticket for a one-hour time slot before you come to the Arvada Center. This allows us to count your visit for future grant funding, as well as monitor the number of visitors in the gallery at a time.
As of February 12, face masks are no longer required by Jefferson County health regulations in indoor public areas. This includes our Event Space rental facilities.
ACES clients will have the option to require masks for their private events, and all staff will be masked during events and while interacting with clients.
At this time, the Arvada Center has no health and safety mandates in place regarding our 2022 Summer Concert Series. Face masks are optional at the Arvada Center. We ask visitors to respect other patrons, our staff and volunteers who may choose to wear masks.
We are selling concerts in our 2022 Summer Concert Series to full capacity.
