Certain Events at the Granada continue to require some or all of these policies: Vaccination & Test Status, Identification Requirement, Face Covering Policy, and Arrival Time & Entry Process.

The Granada Theatre Health and Safety Policies have been informed by and in accordance with CDC recommendations as well as guidelines from the State of California and local officials to create our policies and procedures.

Ticket holders who do not comply with these policies will not be admitted.

These policies may be in effect for certain performances and are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, state, local and presenter guidelines and requirements.

VACCINATION & TEST STATUS

When in effect all ticket holders are required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated.

OR

Supply a professionally administered negative Covid-19 test result, taken within one day for antigen tests and two days for PCR tests.

Fully vaccinated means you received your Johnson & Johnson vaccine 14 days before the show you attend, or you received your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine 14 days before the show you attend.

Booster doses are not required for any patron.

Proof of vaccination is your CDC vaccination card, a photo or copy of your card or the California digital verification from myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov. Out of state patrons need to present similarly verified records.

COVID testing is available at many doctor’s offices and Santa Barbara County testing sites. A list of Santa Barbara County Testing Sites is available here.

Self-administered At-Home tests are NOT accepted.


IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENT

When in effect all patrons 18 years and older must present identification that matches their vaccination or test record.

Identification accepted will be your Driver’s License or State ID, your school photo ID or your passport. Other photo ID may be considered on a case by case basis.

All patrons from ages 3 to 17 without a photo ID must be vouched for and accompanied by a responsible adult.

No one under 3 will be admitted.

FACE COVERING POLICY

Currently the California Public Health Department strongly recommends that all persons, regardless of vaccine status, wear a mask in indoor public settings including theaters.

Certain presenters may require face coverings. When in effect all attendees age 3 and up must wear effective masks such as surgical masks, two-layer cloth masks, or N-95 or equivalent masks.

Bandanas, neck gaiters, masks with exhalation valves and shield-like face coverings are not allowed. Bearded patrons should consider wearing a bandana or gaiter over a mask.

When this policy is in effect, failure to comply is grounds for immediate removal from the theater and possible restrictions on future attendance.

ARRIVAL TIME AND ENTRY PROCESS

When Covid vaccination verification is in effect, please arrive between 30 and 45 minutes prior to the performance start time. Every effort is made to keep this process quick and get everyone to their seats on time. Our verification team is on the pavement in front of the theater. Please go directly to this area on arrival. Be ready with your ID and vaccination or test record. Once verification is complete, you can go to Will Call or enter the theater. Arriving within 10 minutes of show time could mean we won’t be able to get you to your seats on time.

Late seating will take place at the discretion of the performing company.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in creating a safe and inviting environment for live performances at The Granada once again.
