CCAC’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies

Updated 5/1/22

CCAC Procedures and Policies for Health and Safety

Effective May 1, 2022, the Carroll Arts Center will no longer require that patrons wear masks inside of our facility. Due to projected audience size, the use of masks is recommended and masks will be available to all patrons free of charge.

Effective Monday, February 21, 2022, the Carroll Arts Center will no longer require either proof of vaccine or negative COVID-19 PCR test for attendance at theater events and receptions. While the health and safety of our patrons, performers, and staff is still paramount, Carroll County rates of transmission have dropped precipitously in the past weeks and the county no longer registers a high or substantial positivity rate.

The Carroll County Arts Council is committed to the safety of our patrons, performers, and staff. Our current COVID-19 policy considers current information from the Centers for Disease Control, the Carroll County Health Department, and Carroll Hospital Center. We will continue to monitor evolving conditions and may institute appropriate modifications to this policy in order to remain open to the community.

If you feel unwell, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please stay home. 

The CCAC will continue to implement the following enhanced cleaning procedures:

  • Daily sanitization of staff offices, lobby, galleries, and restrooms with more frequent sanitization based on level of attendance.
  • A ULV fogging machine will sanitize all seats, armrests, railings, and handles in the theatre and lobby after events.
  • Careful sanitization of backstage area, stage, and technical equipment after events.

For patrons who purchased tickets prior to May 1, 2022 and whose decisions to attend the event are negatively impacted by these policies, full refunds are available. Please contact Executive Director, Lynne Griffith, at or call 410-848-7272.

We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining a safe environment at the Carroll Arts Center!

PLEASE NOTE: Protocols currently in place are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, state, and local guidelines regarding COVID-19. While we will provide the most up-to-date public health procedures to improve patron safety, no protocol can guarantee absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Patrons assume their own risk by entering the facility.
