The safety and well-being of our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff has been, and always will be, a top priority of the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. Given the increase in COVID-19 cases and illness in the state of Oregon, and in keeping with new industry norms and best practices, effective September 1, 2021, the Newport Performing Arts Center will require proof of full vaccination for entry to all performances. Those unable to provide proof of full vaccination, including children under the age of 5, must have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, taken no more than 72 hours prior to the performance. All patrons, staff, artists and volunteers will need to provide this information as a condition of entry.  Per the City of Newport and State mandates, mask wearing is also required for all individuals when inside the venue, regardless of vaccination status.

This requirement extends until further notice and is subject to review and change according to federal, state, and city recommendations and guidelines.

FULLY VACCINATED:  Means that the performance is at least 14 days after your final vaccine dose.

IF UNVACCINATED: Please bring proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to the performance start time.

FACE MASKS: Required for all, regardless of vaccination status, while inside the building, except while actively eating or drinking in designated areas only. A properly worn mask completely covers the nose and mouth, is secured to the head, and fits snugly against the side of the face.  Gaiters, bandanas, face shields, or masks with an exhalation valve are not acceptable.  Compliant masks will be available to patrons should they need one.


A CDC Vaccination Record Card (physical or a photo) showing a completed vaccination series. Name and birthday must match patron’s valid photo ID.

Proof of a negative PCR test may be a printed or digital test result that matches the patron’s valid photo ID and includes the name and contact information for the laboratory or healthcare personnel who performed the test.

The most up-to-date information will be listed on this web page or by calling the OCCA Office,
