CGOA's Audience COVID-19 Protocols for Events UPDATE 3/11/2022

After careful consideration, and a considerable review of current practices among performing arts organizations nationwide, and of course keeping in mind Oregon's restrictions and recommendations, the CGOA Board of Directors has voted to implement audience protocols for the coming season. 

For any event indoors, audiences will need to show proof of completed vaccinations or a negative COVID-19 test from within 48 prior to the event. This applies to audience members of all ages, including children.


Social distancing will be encouraged. Per Oregon state regulations and CDC recommendations, masks are optional/not required and at the discretion of individuals. 

The same protocols for vaccination or proof of negative test also apply to our volunteers, ensemble members and Board in any in-person meetings or events. For Winter 2021 and Spring 2023, the above groups will also need to show proof of booster. This does not apply to audiences.

We hope that you will understand and support these measures. Although inconvenient, they are essential to keeping our CGOA community safe as well as showing support for our over-extended health care system in our community and state.
