Our current health and safety protocols are posted below. We will update and revise our policies and actions as the situation warrants, based on the most up-to-date guidance from government agencies and experts. To receive a copy of our full COVID safety plan, please email email@example.com.
As of October 20, 2021
Trinity Rep joins eight other Rhode Island performance venues and organizations in a partnership to provide for the safety of their audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers, based on current scientific evidence and best practices around the country.
Organizations included in this effort include Festival Ballet Providence, Gamm Theatre, Island Moving Company, Providence Performing Arts Center, Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School, Trinity Repertory Company, United Theatre, Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, and Wilbury Theatre Group.
Effective immediately and until further notice: All patrons, including children, attending Trinity Rep performances must either show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (at least 14 days have passed since the final dose), or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken in the prior 72-hours, or proof of a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken in the prior 6-hours. All patrons regardless of vaccination status must wear masks over their nose and mouth at all times while inside the venue (unless actively eating or drinking). Details may be revisited or revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic. Please visit the websites of the other individual venues for any additional restrictions or details.
Proof of vaccination or test results can be shown in any of the following ways:
- Your physical vaccination card/test result
- A photo of your vaccination card/test result
- Using the Crush COVID RI app (Rhode Island residents only)
- Using the Bindle app (Bindle generates an admission pass which keeps your personal information anonymous)
- Please note that results from at-home tests cannot be accepted

Mask Note: Masks must completely and tightly cover the wearer’s nose and mouth. Neck gaiters, bandanas, masks with valves or vents, and any covering with only a single layer of cloth are not permitted. Face shields may not be worn in place of a face mask, though may be worn in addition to a face mask.
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.
COVID-Related Exchange Policy: By attending Trinity Rep, patrons are certifying that they are free of COVID 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 for more information about exchanges or digital viewing options. A Christmas Carol tickets come with digital insurance, and any ticket holders who would rather not see a performance in person for any reason, can easily exchange their in-person tickets for a specially recorded version of the play.
Concessions: Until further notice, no concessions will be sold prior to, during, or following Trinity Rep performances.
For Staff, Artists, and Guests
Trinity Rep is now a fully vaccinated workplace, and our staff is starting to return to onsite work. Outside guests are limited and must undergo a health screening at reception before access is granted to any space.
Masks for staff, artists, students, and guests are currently required when moving through the buildings and may be removed for staff only when at their work space, socially distanced from others.
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.
Twelve 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.
