COVID-19 Safety at La Jolla Playhouse
Updated October 31, 2022

COVID-19 Safety Policy for La Jolla Playhouse will be announced 2 – 4 weeks prior to each show’s first performance.

Effective Monday, October 17, 2022, La Jolla Playhouse will no longer require patrons to wear masks indoors while attending shows or events at our theatres. However, we still recommend indoor masking while at La Jolla Playhouse. You should feel comfortable wearing a mask if you choose.

Staff and volunteers will be encouraged to wear masks indoors. Concession food must be enjoyed outside or in the lobby and concession drinks with lids will be permitted in the theatre.

If you have purchased tickets for others, please share this important information with your theatre companions. We will continue to evaluate our health and safety policies in light of evolving local health conditions and guidance from authorities, and will notify you of any changes.

If at any time prior to your performance, you are not feeling well, or feel uncomfortable attending, we are happy to assist you with a return or date exchange when available. Please contact Patron Services at (858) 550-1010 for further assistance.

As always, the health and safety of audiences, artists, staff, volunteers and our community are our highest priority. We are committed to following guidelines and strategies provided by UC San Diego, San Diego County, California Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Playhouse works very closely with UC San Diego to regarding COVID-19 safety on campus, including participating in the university’s healthy building practices.

Thank you for helping us create a safe and enjoyable environment for audiences, artists and staff. We are grateful to you for your continued support of the Playhouse and of live theater in San Diego.
