Portland Performing Arts Vaccine Coalition

Portland performing arts organizations have united to form a vaccine coalition for indoor performances. The protocols below are in place to prioritize the health and safety of audience members, artists, staff, volunteers, and the community at large.

Vaccination and/or a Negative COVID-19 Test will be Required for All Attendees:

  • Event attendees will be asked to present proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before attending a performance. 
  • For those not vaccinated, most organizations will also accept the results of a recent negative COVID-19 test.
  • Each organization will have its own procedures for communicating and upholding these protocols and sharing any other safety guidelines in place.
  • These protocols will change as things continue to shift. For the most up-to-date information, it’s best to check an organization’s website closer to your performance.
