COVID-19

The safety of our audiences and our artists is our highest priority. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and how it affects our programming and will continually reevaluate our protocols. In light of recent increases in transmission in Milwaukee County and the development of additional variants:

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or a negative test result from within 72 hours) is required to attend any Cooperative Performance event. Face masks are also required to be worn fully covering the nose and mouth while at any indoor venue.

Accepted Proof of Vaccination:

  • Please have your physical vaccination card, a copy of your physical vaccination card, or a digital vaccination card maintained by a government, vaccination provider, or verification service that checks against government records.

  • You must be two weeks past your final dose to be considered fully vaccinated.

  • Were you vaccinated in Wisconsin? You can access your immunization history (including COVID-19) via the Wisconsin Immunization Registry public record search.

Still need to get vaccinated?

Accepted Negative Test Results:

  • There are two common types of diagnostic COVID-19 tests: A molecular test (also called a PCR test or NAAT test) and an antigen test (also called a rapid antigen test). Either is acceptable for attending our events. You must receive a valid results document from your test provider that includes provider name, your name, the date the test was taken, type of test, and your negative result. This can be a printed document, email, or telehealth app notification.

  • Antibody tests are not accepted, as they do not detect a current infection. Home test kits that are self-administered at home, and not supervised live by a telehealth professional, are also not accepted. Handwritten doctor’s notes will not be accepted.

Where can I get tested?

(REMINDER: Fully-vaccinated individuals need only provide their proof of vaccination and do not need to provide a test result.)

Face masks are required, regardless of vaccination status.

  • On July 27, 2021, CDC updated recommendations that everyone in areas with substantial and high transmission, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings.

  • Between 8/25/2021 and 9/7/2021, Milwaukee county had very high case activity.

What kind of face mask do I need?

If you feel ill (including but not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other flu or cold-like symptoms) or have come into contact with someone exposed to COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, please DO NOT attend.

We thank you for prioritizing the safety of our artists, staff, and community.

Board meetings are still being held virtually via Google Meet at this time.

Although we are still navigating our re-entry into the social and artistic world, we are committed to supporting new work as safely as possible. We thank you for your patience and wish everyone good health.
