Salt Lake County Arts & Culture Venues Lift Face Covering and Distancing Requirements

On May 14, 2021, Mayor Jenny Wilson announced that health & safety guidelines have been lifted at County owned and operated venues based on the most current CDC guidance.

Current COVID Health and Safety Guidelines at Arts & Culture Venues

  • Face coverings are no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals in Salt Lake County facilities. This applies to staff, crew, patrons, and other event attendees.
  • Those non-vaccinated individuals and children under 12 should continue to wear face coverings.
  • This show is seating at full capacity – patrons will be seated shoulder to shoulder without social distancing.
  • Concessions are not available at this time. Please check our website for updates on concessions sales in the County venues.

This is exciting news as we continue to recover from the Pandemic. However not everyone in our community is vaccine eligible, including youth and people with certain health conditions. Wearing face coverings continues to offer health benefits and is left to the discretion of the vaccinated individual.

Before you visit our venues, please review the information below. If you have any questions about any of our new or modified procedures, call 385-468-1015 or email
