CCAC’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies

Updated 12/31/21

CCAC Procedures and Policies for Health and Safety

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. Although other local arts organizations have canceled events and closed their doors, we have instituted this policy in order to remain open to the community.

Effective January 1, 2022, the Carroll Arts Center will require the following:

MASK REQUIREMENT
Properly worn face masks will be required for all patrons, staff, and volunteers regardless of vaccination status or location in the building. Children under the age of two will be exempt.

PROOF OF VACCINE OR NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST
At the time of entry for theatre events or gallery receptions, patrons ages 12 and over must provide a photo ID and proof of full vaccination status, as defined by the CDC. For those unable to be vaccinated, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test completed within 72 hours of the day of the event is required. There is no vaccine or negative test requirement to visit our gallery exhibits.

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

Patrons who do not comply with these policies will not be admitted. Patrons who are unable to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID -19 test at the door will not be admitted. 

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 January 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 lynne@carrollcountyartscouncil.org 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.
