Edmonds Center for the Arts Covid Safety Update


The safety of our patrons, artists, community partners, staff and volunteers continues to be important to us. 

While at Edmonds Center for the Arts, facial masks

Masking requirements may fluctuate based on  artists request, season, Washington State, or CDC mandates.

Proof of vaccination OR negative COVID-19 test is no longer required.

ECA staff is continually assessing the changing guidelines, local government updates, and artist contracts. As such, all COVID Health & Safety protocols are subject to change. Please check our website for the most up to date information before attending performances and events.

If you are unable to comply with ECA’s current COVID protocols, we ask that you please refrain from attending events until our protocols change. Please note that ECA reserves the right to remove a patron from an event if unable to comply with our current COVID safety protocols. There are many factors to measure and manage, and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we carefully navigate through this transition.

ECA does not accept liability for the transmission of infectious diseases. Attend at your own risk.



Masks are strongly recommended, though not required for all patrons in all areas. This is subject to change upon artists request, CDC and state guidelines, and the current status of the pandemic.
