We continue to work closely with our resident companies and other presenting organizations with upcoming performances to monitor the situation, while continuing to follow the updates and guidance of the Center for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health, and Santa Barbara County Public Health Department, and are re-evaluating our steps and actions on a daily basis in order to follow their guidance and directives.

What You Can Do

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is characterized by mild symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Illness can be more severe for some people and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. We encourage you to stay home and contact a medical professional if you are experiencing symptoms.

Following the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (SBCPHD), we would also like to remind patrons and visitors to:

  • If you are feeling sick stay at home, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes.
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch areas and surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, railings, light switches, toilets, phones, keyboards, remote controls, tablets and bedside tables.
  • Practice simple social distancing strategies from those who are sick, such as verbal salutations instead of handshakes or hugs; not sharing utensils, cups and linens; and keeping a distance of six feet apart.

Thank you for your support and your loyalty. We will keep you updated through this evolving situation and look forward to welcoming you to The Granada Theatre. It is our goal to ensure that you can continue to engage with The Granada’s cultural experiences in ways that are both meaningful and safe.
