COVID-19 Safety Protocols

We are looking forward to safely welcoming patrons back to the theatre in 2021! This page will be kept up-to-date with all COVID-19 protocols for audience, artists, staff, and volunteers. If you have any questions or concerns about COVID-19 safety, please do not hesitate to get in touch at 902-412-7122 or info@theatrebaddeck.com 

For audience members

Mask Policy (updated April 2021)

All audience members are required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth for the duration of their visit to Theatre Baddeck. If a patron arrives without a mask, or with a face covering that does not sufficiently cover their nose and mouth, Theatre Baddeck will provide a mask free of charge. Masks may only be removed on the premises when eating or drinking and eating/drinking may only take place in your seat. 

Illness/Stay-at-home Policy (updated April 2021)

All audience members are asked to stay home if any of the following applies to them. They can call 902-412-7122 and we will exchange their tickets for another date if possible. If not, a full refund will be provided. Stay-at-home criteria:

  • The patron or someone from their household has any of the following symptoms (current NS Public Health list here):

    • fever over 38 degrees C (chills, sweats)

    • new or worsening cough

    • sore throat

    • runny nose or nasal congestion

    • headache

    • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • The patron or someone from their household has travelled outside of Atlantic Canada in the last 14 days​

  • The patron or someone from their household has had close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19

  • The patron or someone from their household is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test

  • The patron or something from their household has visited a known exposure site listed by Public Health

  • The patron or something from their household directed to self-isolate for any reason

All patrons will be asked a series of questions on arrival to attest that they are compliant with this policy.

Physical Distancing Policy (updated April 2021)

Patrons are asked to remain 2m/6ft from everyone outside their bubble at all times. Audience seating will be set up in pairs of seats 2m/6ft apart. Moving of chairs is strictly prohibited. Seating is general admission/first come first served; however, once audience members have selected their seats they cannot be changed. When audience members arrive at the theatre, we ask that they visit the washroom and bar if necessary first and then take their seat. Once you are seated, please do not leave your seat unless absolutely necessary until the performance concludes.
