COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

As we prepare to welcome audiences back to our performances this fall, your health and safety are our top priorities. In light of the highly transmissible Delta variant and increasing cases in Minnesota, the Arts Partnership (Minnesota Opera, the Ordway, the SPCO and Schubert Club) will now require all audience members to present proof of either full COVID-19 vaccination* or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours prior to attending an event at the Ordway.

Masks will also be required for all guests inside of the Ordway, except while eating or drinking. This follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recent recommendation that everyone should wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status. Attendance at all Arts Partnership events in September will also be limited to 50% capacity to allow for distancing.

If ticket holders do not meet these requirements, or if ticket holders have COVID-19 symptoms, test positive for COVID or are uncomfortable attending a performance, they can exchange their tickets for another performance, bank tickets in their account for later use, turn back their tickets as a tax-deductible contribution to the SPCO or request a refund, with no fees or penalties.

For more resources and information on these safety protocols, and a list of acceptable proof of vaccination or COVID test results, please visit thespco.org/safety.

Keeping our audiences, artists, staff and community safe is vitally important to us. Thank you for doing your part — we are excited to see you back at the Ordway again soon.

The SPCO performs regularly in 13 venues around the Twin Cities. Find more information about our venues, from driving directions to nearby dining.
