Health and Safety


Sarasota County arts and cultural organizations which include the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, have united and agreed to uphold vigilant healthy and safety protocols for the protection of our community, patrons, artists, and staff to maintain the economic stability of our institutions. Ringling College Library Association is joining this effort effective September 26, 2021. We will be uniformly implementing the following policies for all patrons attending TOWN HALL presentations, updated February 28, 2022:

  • For the safety and confidence of others attending our venues, we are requiring masks and social distancing for all joining us for live presentations.

Protocols will be revisited and may be revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic, including use of additional screening protocols. We encourage our ticket holders to periodically check our website, as these policies will be evaluated on a regular basis as conditions evolve.
