RELEASE — Effective March 1, 2022, Kingston Grand Theatre will open at full capacity after the Government of Ontario lifted certain public health measures related to COVID-19.
Mandatory masking requirements and passive screening will remain in place in accordance with public health requirements and Provincial guidelines. This is a welcome change after close to two years of the venue being closed intermittently depending on direction from the Province and Public Health.
You will continue to see the following public health measures as we work to keep patrons safe:
- Posting on-site signage that allows for passive screening
- Wearing face coverings that cover the nose, mouth, and chin
- Practicing regular hand hygiene
- Cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces frequently
- Providing compostable paper and plastic cups for all beverages
- Optimizing the effectiveness of the building’s recently updated HVAC system
“We know people are feeling a mix of emotions in this moment, but we are excited to bring the Kingston community together once again to enjoy the performing arts live and in person,” says Colin Wiginton, Director, Arts & Culture Services. “Staff are working hard to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety and we look forward to welcoming people back to enjoy Theatre Kingston’s production of Mercy starting March 10, the return of Grand OnStage on March 18 or any number of other shows being hosted by Kingston Grand in the weeks and months ahead.”
