COVID-19 Protocols

Last updated: July 27, 2022

Proof of vaccination

We no longer require everyone entering our theatre to provide proof of vaccination.

Maintaining a safe space

Our theatre is equipped with 4 rooftop HVAC units, and sanitation measures were added to ensure all high touch areas are cleaned frequently.

Masks & PPE

Masks will still be required inside of our building. Please continue to practice social distancing at the theatre.

The safety of our staff, performers and patrons are of the utmost importance. Changes to our policies are informed by updates relating to infection rates, transmission data, variant developments, and local and federal health regulations.

Take a look at our detailed Covid-19 protocols below. If you have any further questions or concerns please contact us at

Here are a few examples:

  • The theatre is equipped with 4 rooftop HVAC units that constantly cycle the air in the building. The Mainspace is further equipped with two ceiling fans that draw air upwards to the HVAC air intake. These systems were revisited at the beginning of the pandemic and shall remain on at all times.
  • There are added sanitation measures to ensure all high touch areas are being cleaned and sanitized.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available outside of the washrooms and inside each theatre.
  • In areas that are too narrow for two people to pass within 2 m distance. You must yield at the doorways and hallways and wait for one person to pass through one-at-a-time

Yes, masks will still be required inside our building.

Vaccine Chats

On October 28th, Theatre Passe Muraille hosted a chat between Artistic Director Marjorie Chan, Dr. Harjot Atwal, Dr. Alia Dharamsi, and Janelle Noel from Women’s College Hospital to answer some of our community’s burning questions about vaccinations and the new vaccine protocol. How safe should theatre patrons feel in a space where everyone is fully vaccinated and masked? How do the vaccines actually work, and how did they come to market?
