COVID Policy

As the pandemic situation continues to develop, we will be implementing the following rules in compliance with both California state mandates and the audience protocols of the California Center for the Arts:

Masks are required for everyone in all spaces on the Center’s campus.

Masks are required for everyone over 2 years of age for all indoor and outdoor events while not actively eating or drinking. Masks must be made of paper or cloth and cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly on your face.

All conference center guests must show photo ID and proof of full vaccination or negative test

Effective September 20, 2021 all guests attending indoor events such as conferences, meetings, social events etc. must provide proof of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID‐19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to entering a venue for entry. At‐home test results will not be accepted. Find the nearest COVID testing facility.

If you have questions about an upcoming conference center event, please contact the organization putting on the event.

Trained CCAE staff and security will review your proof of vaccination/testing and ensure it matches your photo ID. ID is not required for those under 18. Please plan to arrive early to allow time for check in. Guests who do not comply will not be admitted.

Accepted proof of vaccination includes the following options:

  • A physical vaccination card
  • A picture of your vaccination card

Ticket holders over the age of six (6) years of age and those who need a reasonable accommodation for medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to entering a venue. At-home test results will not be accepted.  Find the nearest COVID testing facility.

Masks are required for all outdoor events.

Due to the close contact guests have at events, the Center is requiring masks to be worn unless seated and actively eating or drinking. Vaccination/testing documentation is not currently required for outdoor events.
