Wortham Center's COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

Your well-being is very important to us. Wearing of face masks is required at any Wortham Center performance and event. Please carefully review the health and safety recommendations before arriving at the Wortham Center.

The Wortham Center has taken reasonable additional measures in an effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19 for patrons, artists and staff. COVID-19 is, however, an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. An inherent risk* of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people are present or gather. 

While any person is at risk of potential exposure, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By coming to the Wortham Center, including performances, you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and any other communicable disease.

*An inherent risk is a risk that cannot be eliminated.
