COVID Policy as of August 2021
4th Street Theater has decided to announce we will continue the following COVID policy due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases. We want to continue to provide live theater and ensure the safety of our patrons and our volunteers.
The following policies will remain in place until further notice. 4th Street Theater will continue to monitor COVID recommendations from the health department and CDC, and we will revise the guidelines as required.
Our board has decided to voluntarily reduce our seating capacity to 2/3 capacity. This will allow us to increase the spacing between the rows as well as between the audience and the stage.
Note as of October 2021 - we have increased our seating capacity to 50 seats.
Due to our small space, we require all patrons to wear a mask inside the theater regardless of their vaccination status. We also ask that you please do not come if you have been sick within the last 24 hours.
Volunteers – Including Performers, Crew, Board & Other Volunteers
All volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated if they are over the age of 12. Vaccination exemptions will be considered when a doctor has recommended against it for medical reasons.
Performers will not wear a mask while performing.
If a volunteer tests positive for COVID or is required to quarantine, they are required to immediately alert the theatre so that contact tracing may be conducted. These alerts should go to Linda Pauli. 4th Street Theater contact tracing will require all exposed volunteers and/or staff to be tested. If additional positive tests are discovered, then appropriate measures will be taken to ensure the safety of all.
Over the summer we had our carpets, chairs, and ductwork professionally cleaned.
We have also installed a UV filter in our HVAC system to continuously clean the air. We will also use a disinfecting fogger between performances.
Thank you from the board of 4th Street Theater. Please stay healthy.
