Covid Safety Plan

Effective May 1, the University of Waterloo has announced they will suspend proof of vaccination requirements for entry to campus.  This decision has been made in light of the recent relaxation of public health restrictions as part of the the Ontario government’s Roadmap to Reopen, and on the basis of current local public health conditions.  It is contingent on current public health conditions and directions continuing.

The Theatres at UWaterloo, including the Theatre of the Arts, will continue to follow the guidelines outlined by the University of Waterloo. Starting May 1st, we will not require vaccination status for clients, patrons, and performers, unless the situation changes. 

Masking requirements are still in effect in all University of Waterloo buildings and venues.

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, the evolution of the virus and the course of disease activity have been difficult to predict.  We acknowledge that the situation may change at any time, and that the risks of new variants and outbreaks are very real. In suspending mask and proof of vaccination requirements on campus, the University is also retaining their agency to reinstate these (and any other) requirements on short notice, according to the advice of public health authorities.

If you as the client would prefer to mandate any of the previous directives (masking, proof of vaccination, reduced capacity, or social distanced seating), we will support your decision.

Thank you for your understanding and adaptability as we continue to work hard keeping each other safe and healthy.  We will continue to keep you updated as changes occur that affect your event.
