Our stance on COVID-19 during the Festival
Keeping you safe
Although COVID-19 regulations were relaxed in early 2022, the health and wellbeing of our audiences continues to be our top priority. During this year’s Festival, we kindly ask audience members not to attend if you have have a fever or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19 within 5 days of attending, or if you have had close contact with anyone suspected or confirmed of having COVID-19.
Due to the fast turnaround of our shows, we will be unable to accommodate a wipe-down of seating and surfaces between performances, however a cleanse will be performed at the end of each night. Alcohol gel will be provided within the venues, however we encourage audience members to bring their own alcohol gel and wipes. If you would like to wear a mask for your own comfort, we support you to do so to ensure your experience of the Festival is as comfortable as possible.
We acknowledge that we cannot elminitate all risk of transmission from COVID-19 or other communicable diseases during the Festival, but we thank you for your support and understanding in following all the necessary guidelines that will make this year’s Fringe possible.
Please note: Vancouver Fringe assumes no liability for any actual or perceived transmission of COVID-19 in attending or participating in the Festival.
