COVID-19 POLICY & SAFETY PLAN
If you are un-vaccinated against COVID-19, we ask that you wear a mask while visiting our facility. If you do not have a mask with you, we have complimentary disposable masks available at the door. Please respect 6ft of distance between yourself and those not in your party.
During downtown events, festivals, and high-traffic times in our gallery staff may ask you to wear a mask, regardless of your vaccination status. Our facility welcomes individuals and groups who include those who are immunocompromised, medically vulnerable, or ineligible for vaccination. Thank you for your understanding.
What is required to enter shows at McDowell Arts Council Association?
At seated events in the Greenlee Theatre, you will be asked to wear a mask while checking in, being seated, and in shared areas of the building (concessions, bathrooms). You may remove your mask after you are seated.
What else are we doing to create as safe an environment as possible?
-STAFF: All MACA Staff and Volunteers are fully vaccinated.
-CLEANING AND SANITATION: Our venue will thoroughly disinfect all high touch areas within the venue, including seats, handrails and door handles, counter tops, and restrooms. In addition to our staff efforts, we also are contracting professional cleaning services to help us keep the space sanitized and beautiful.
All classes open to adults 18 years of age and older will require proof of vaccination and will be required to wear a mask when in proximity to others. Class attendees under 18 years of age will be required to wear a mask while indoors.

Other actions we are taking to remain operational:
• Tickets are being sold at a reduced capacity, photo ID check-in, and contact-free payment option available for every ticket purchased online or in person.
• The first row of seating is blocked off so that the audience is placed further back from the stage.
• Shows have been selected with small cast sizes.
