Beginning 7/26/22, the Newport Performing Arts Center and Newport Visual Arts Center (“OCCA”) will be observing the following protocols for masking and non-masking:
OCCA will be using the Oregon COVID -19 Public Health Indicators found on the Oregon Health Authority website as our point of reference to determine the requirement of a mask at ticketed events.
When Lincoln County transmission rate of COVID-19 is in the moderate-high range, masks will be required for patrons 2 years of age and older while attending a ticketed performance.
When Lincoln County transmission rate of COVID-19 is in the low category, masks will be recommended, but not required.
Please note that the community transmission level may change at any time without notice. This includes between your date of ticket purchase and the date of the event. For the most up to date information please visit https://coastarts.org/covid-safety/
During regular business hours (non-performance times) and at non-ticketed events, at both the Newport Performing Arts Center and the Newport Visual Arts Center, masks are recommended but not required of our visitors.
The most up-to-date information will be listed on this web page or by calling the OCCA Office,
