Covid-19 Policy

YUBA SUTTER ARTS & CULTURE COVID-19 POLICY (Updated: October 07, 2021)

  • Effective September 8, 2021 for all events and programs hosted at the Lee Burrows Theater, YSAC Gallery, and Sutter Theater Center for the Arts.

Vaccines are our tickets back to live performances, music, theater, dance, and more…sounds simple, doesn’t it? Our ability to stay open depends on everyone doing their part to stay safe and stop the spread of COVID in our community. 

Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture is excited to welcome back longtime loyal patrons and newcomers alike, to our events and program for the Fall 2021 season. After careful consideration and with your safety in mind we are implementing the following COVID policy. We will be re-evaluating and, if needed, updating this policy based on the most recent information available from the CDC, state/local public health authorities, and Yuba & Sutter Counties. 

The health and safety of patrons, artists, and staff is our number one priority as we bring the best of arts and culture back to our beautiful venues. Committed to this priority, all persons in our venues will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated (i.e., 2 weeks + have passed since the attendee has received the single-dose vaccine or the 2nd dose in a two-dose series) OR a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event date to gain entry. Picture ID will be required for proof of negative COVID-19 tests.

*Children OVER the age of 12 must show proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of the events.

*Children UNDER the age of 12 do not have to show proof of vaccination or negative test, but WILL remain masked at all times.


In accordance with California’s current guidelines, attendees will need to agree to the following terms prior to purchasing tickets and attending events at all Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture venues including Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture Gallery, The Lee Burrows Theater, Sutter Theater Center for the Arts, and Kalakara Artist Studios:

These requirements will apply to ALL members of your party before they are allowed to enter the venue.

Per CDC and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommendation , MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS while attending events hosted by Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture. A non-vented N95 mask or other well-fitted mask is required to provide maximum protection.
