COVID Policy (last updated 9/8/21)

The safety of your child and the safety of our staff is paramount in importance to us here at North Bay Theatrics. We follow all recommended and mandated COVID-19 regulations set forth by the County and State. 

As we return to live theatre, protecting the health and safety of our students, staff and community overall, is of upmost importance to NBT. We plan to follow the strictest recommendations and COVID-19 safety protocols as laid out by the State of California and the CDC.

 
  • In the studio space- all students, staff and community members will be required to wear a mask over the mouth and nose. For the comfort of our students and to allow for mask breaks, we will hold socially distanced rehearsals outdoors whenever possible. Snack and water breaks will also occur outdoors whenever possible. 
  • We will continue our strict policy of taking temperatures of students and staff upon arrival to rehearsal and previous signed waivers of reporting illness are in effect. Zoom and recorded rehearsals will be made available to students unable to attend due to illness or potential Covid 19 exposure. Communal spaces will be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly between rehearsals. 
     
Live Performances-

(9/8/21) At this time, California and CDC guidelines allow live theatre performances at 100% capacity, as such we will allow for 100% capacity at our performance, unless the building contract permits us from doing so.
Please note the following before purchasing your tickets:

 
  • We are requiring that all patrons who purchase a ticket to be vaccinated or show proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72hrs of attending a live indoor performance. This rule applies to ALL audience members above 12 years of age. If you are not vaccinated or unable to obtain a negative test, we will have video streaming available for you to watch.
  • We respectfully request that all members of our audience wear face masks while in the theatre to ensure the safety and peace of mind of all in attendance. Outdoors space for eating or drinking, along with concessions will be provided outside before the performance starts and during intermission.
  • As of right now our students will likely be masked during performance but we are seeking clear masks. We will also be reducing the intensity of choreography for the comfort and safety of our mask wearing students. 
  • For your safety and comfort, NBT affirms that:
  • 100% of our staff have been fully vaccinated and are healthy. Staff will remain at home if experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, cold, flu or other illness.
  • We have added the use of air purifiers to improve ventilation and COVID-19 protection.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout studio area and in any performance spaced used by NBT.
  • Face masks will be available for anyone who needs them.
  • As safety protocols change, we will adjust our policies and procedures accordingly.
