COVID-19 Updates for our Patrons

We care about your safety and that of our artists, technicians, and staff. Since March of 2020, we've updated HVAC systems at the Geary Theater, and have optimized safety protocols across our venues in alignment with COVID-19 health orders and guidelines. Our safety protocols will be regularly updated in accordance with any changes to relevant San Francisco, county, and state guidance. Given how quickly guidelines can change, we will have more details about specific safety protocols for our in-person performances after January 1, 2022.


Updates as of August 26, 2021

A.C.T. is joining with Theatre Bay Area and performing arts groups across the Bay Area to adopt a shared set of safety protocols to protect audiences, performers, staff members, and volunteers during live, indoor performances.

Those protocols are:

  • Proof of full vaccination is required for all ticket holders, except for those legally exempted. 
    • All ticket holders entering the theater will be required to show an ID with photo and full name and proof of vaccination. A physical vaccination card, picture of your vaccination card, or digital vaccination record will suffice. California residents may obtain a digital vaccination card at cdph.ca.gov
    • Proof of vaccination must indicate that it has been at least 14 days since the patron’s last vaccination dose (two doses are required for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, one for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). 
  • As we approach January 2022, A.C.T. will share specifics for requirements for patrons who are legally exempted from vaccines (attendees under the age of 12 or those with a medical or religious exemption).
  • All ticket holders are required to wear face masks inside the venue.

Updates as of March 25, 2021

San Francisco’s reopening plan is aligned with the State’s guidelines and is based on a San Francisco-specific risk model to control the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health. The plan is also informed by the work of the San Francisco COVID-19 Economic Recovery Task Force, of which our Executive Director, Jennifer Bielstein, is a member. The timeline for allowing certain businesses and activities to resume will be adjusted as needed based on public health data.

As a nonprofit theater, A.C.T. exists to serve this community and shares with you the belief that the arts are essential. As a valued member of the A.C.T. family, we know you will appreciate the impact of these cancellations on our financial health, and we hope that you will be willing to help, in whatever small way may be possible, to ensure that we can gather with you once again when this crisis finally passes. You can donate the cost of your unused tickets and/or make a tax-deductible gift to help sustain A.C.T. during this challenging time.
