Beginning September 22, 2021, and in conjunction with the Provincial mandate for theatres and many other public gathering places, all Red Sandcastle patrons will need to provide proof of full vaccination status with either a Health Canada or CDC authorized vaccine.
“Fully vaccinated” means that the date of attendance must be at least 14 days after receiving either the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or 14 days following a single dose vaccine (i.e.: Johnson & Johnson).
An official proof of vaccination receipt — displayed either on a smartphone or with a physical copy of the proof of vaccination — must be presented at time of entry into the Sandcastle along with a performance ticket.
All patrons 18 years or older must also present a government-issued photo ID. Patrons younger than 18 may use a government-issued photo ID or school photo ID. Patrons under 12 must be accompanied by adults, all of whom must meet the above requirements.
Children under 12, who are accompanied by an adult that meets the above vaccination requirements, will be allowed entry in accordance with the prevailing medical guidance at the time of the performance.
Exceptions will be made only for patrons who provide proof of exemption as required by the Province. American patrons may use the same vaccination documentation that allowed for their border crossing.
For your safety, as well as that of our artists and staff, and in accordance with this Provincial order, the Red Sandcastle will not admit any patrons who are unable to provide this required documentation.
Mask wearing remains mandatory for both outdoor and indoor events, concerts and performances. This includes all areas of our theatres and during performances. As of October 9th, 2021 capacity restrictions changed, but enforcement of the above precautionary procedures will still be in place to ensure safety.
We anticipate being required to maintain many of these protocols throughout the remainder of 2021 and until the Provincial Government allows for a relaxation of these requirements.
As government guidance is rapidly evolving, our protocols will likewise be amended and updated as necessary.
