Public Health & Safety Notices

REVISED: Friday, April 22, 2022, at 10:00 a.m.

Since March of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic first impacted our community, Scottsdale Arts has remained committed to responding to the current level of viral spread within our community based on guidelines and reports provided by the CDC, Arizona Department Of Health, and other health care authorities.

Every change in Scottsdale Arts health and safety protocols has been in response to current conditions on the ground in Scottsdale and in Arizona at large. Our latest change in health and safety protocols is directly in response to current conditions, and it reflects a change in protocols that have been implemented within our industry across Arizona. These changes are not permanent. If circumstances within our community show an increase in infections, our policies will change accordingly.

Scottsdale is currently experiencing a transitionary period, where infection rates are very low and the CDC has designated Maricopa County as “low spread” and “green.” This, along with information provided by state health authorities, has resulted in Scottsdale Arts’ reduction in health and safety requirements for patrons attending events.

Current protocols no longer require a negative COVID-19 PCR test or proof of vaccination. Masking is officially optional except in cases where a performing artist performing has specifically requested masking of the audience. Scottsdale Arts will notify all audiences of this requirement on a case-by-case basis as it becomes necessary. Notifications for such changes in policy will be issued via email three days prior to the event taking place.

Thank you for your concern and consideration in adhering to our health and safety protocols. We will notify our community if and when changes are necessary in the future.
