COVID-19 Policies

Anyone attending upcoming CCA events must provide proof of vaccination or an acceptable negative test to enter.

Updated mask policy: 

  • Face coverings are generally optional at the CCA, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings continue to be welcomed when individuals choose to wear them as a matter of personal choice.
  • Face coverings may continue to be required by organizers of specific events. Individuals should be prepared to wear a face covering if requested to do so.

Vaccine policy:

  • Attendees must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated with an FDA approved COVID-19 vaccine. Legitimate, legible, original vaccination cards and physical or electronic copies will be accepted.
    –OR–
    Provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, which includes a negative PCR test or rapid antigen within 72 hours of the start of the performance or event. The test results must clearly show the date and time of the test. This test may be performed by a medical professional or by using an over-the-counter testing kit. A time-stamped photo of an at-home test result is acceptable.
  • UMaine faculty, students and staff may show the UMaine PointNClick green confirmation screen (no screenshots).
  • The University System may, at its sole discretion, permit individuals who are not age-eligible for vaccination, currently those younger than 5 years old, entrance if they wear a face covering and pass a symptom check, except that children younger than two are not required to wear masks. The additional screening would consist of being asked a short list of questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and a temperature scan that must have a reading of 100.4 Fahrenheit or lower to be granted entry.
  • If unable to provide valid proof of vaccination or a valid negative test, or if unable to pass the enhanced screening, guests will be turned away from the event.
  • Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets to events prior to the performance and are encouraged to arrive early.
  • Stay home if experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • The Collins Center for the Arts and University of Maine cannot categorically guarantee that any person entering University campuses or facilities will not contract COVID-19 or any other communicable disease and any such person must assess and accept the risks of illness or injury for themselves.

For all Bangor Symphony Orchestra concerts:

  • Masks are optional.
  • Attendees must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated with an FDA approved COVID-19 vaccine. Legitimate, legible, original vaccination cards and physical or electronic copies will be accepted.
    -OR-
    Provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted within 72 hours of the performance start time or a negative COVID-19 rapid (antigen) test within 12 hours of the performance start time. This also applies to any children not yet fully vaccinated, defined as 14 days following 2nd dose.
  • Present valid ID alongside above proof of vaccination or negative test. Children 18 and under do not need ID if attending with adult.
  • UMaine faculty, students and staff may show the UMaine PointNClick green confirmation screen (no screenshots).
