Trinity Rep takes the health and safety of its community seriously, and is committed to protecting its staff, artists, students, and patrons. Our current health and safety protocols are posted below. We update and revise our policies and actions as the situation warrants. 

as of January 2024


The theater is protected by emergency lighting and sprinklers, and our staff are trained in CPR and first aid. In an emergency, please contact a staff member immediately.

Firearms and weapons are not allowed on the premises, except for credentialed local, state, and federal law enforcement officers with proper ID.

All bags are subject to search by security if deemed necessary.


By attending Trinity Rep, patrons are certifying that they are free of COVID symptoms and have not been instructed to quarantine. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test result is no longer required for entry.

Masked Matinees: To accommodate patrons who feel most comfortable in a fully masked environment, select matinees will require guests to wear masks. Masks must completely and tightly cover the nose and mouth. 

COVID-19 Exchange Policy: By attending Trinity Rep, patrons are certifying that they are free of COVID-19 symptoms. If on the day of the performance you are experiencing any COVID symptoms or have been instructed to quarantine, please stay home and contact the Ticket Office at (401) 351-4242 for more information about exchanges. 

Audience Capacity: Trinity Rep is not reducing capacity for social distancing. The actual number of audience members at each performance will vary, but all tickets are available for sale. 

Our Staff and Artists: Trinity Rep is a fully vaccinated workplace. Masks for staff and students are encouraged. Unless otherwise announced, actors will not be masked while on stage. 

Our Cleaning Protocols and Ventilation

Our spaces and high-touch surfaces are being regularly cleaned and disinfected. In addition, all of Trinity Rep’s facilities have been disinfected and treated by Infection Prevention Specialists (IPS) with MicroShield 360, creating a microscopic, preventative, and long-lasting 360 degree shield that combats viruses, bacteria, mold, odors, and disease while diminishing cross-contamination every second of every day. This cutting-edge biomed technology has been studied, lab-tested, and comes approved and certified by the CDC, FDA, and EPA. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are located throughout the facilities and frequent hand washing is expected of all staff, artists, students, and patrons. Posters regarding proper hygiene and social distancing are located throughout the premises.

In 2018, funded by the Rhode Island Creative and Cultural Economy Bond, Trinity Rep completed a $1.9 million upgrade to the HVAC systems serving the Chace Theater and public spaces. Air filters in all of Trinity Rep’s facilities have been upgraded to MERV-13 where possible. Additional air purifiers have been added to most spaces that do not have the opportunity to open exterior windows.

Eleven COVID compliance officers have been trained and certified to ensure that Trinity Rep adheres to all required protocols. As the situation develops, we will adapt our policies and procedures accordingly.
