COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Safety is of paramount importance at Red Mountain Theatre. While we cannot assure our RMT team or participants that there will not be a spread of COVID-19 or any other disease during our programs, we will continue to adjust these procedures to comply with all state health regulations and consult with health officials as we move forward. Thank you for your continued support, flexibility, and willingness to engage with us in this unprecedented time.
RMT COVID Policy
- RMT encourages masks for all (regardless of vaccination status) while inside our facility.
- RMT encourages vaccines for those eligible.
We will get through this pandemic, but it is going to take each and every one of us doing our part to make it happen. Vaccination offers each of us and our families the best protection against serious illness and death, reduces transmission rates, and limits the impact the virus can have on our community.
How can you help?
- If you are experiencing ANY COVID-19 related symptoms, please let us know. These include but are not limited to: fever (100.4 or above), headaches, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, fatigue, new loss of smell and/or taste, diarrhea, chills/shaking. We ask that you DO NOT come to a RMT event, class or camp if you are experiencing these symptoms.
- If you are feeling ill or have knowingly been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, please notify us prior to your class, camp or performance.
- Please refrain from touching any unnecessary surfaces or belongings/costumes/props/etc. that are not your own.
- In whichever venue you are rehearsing or performing, please remain only in areas/rooms that have been designated to you by RMT staff.
If you are exposed to someone who has tested positive or you have tested positive yourself, please follow the below guidelines.
What to do if Exposed or Tested Positive
- Performers/students/staff/volunteers who test positive for the COVID-19 virus can return to work/class after 10 calendar days from when symptoms were noticed, have improved symptoms, and be fever-free (defined as 100.4℉ or greater) for at least 24 hours.
- Performers/students/staff/volunteers who test positive and have no symptoms can return to work/class 10 calendar days after the date of their first positive test.
- Performers/students/staff/volunteers whose siblings or other relatives in the same home test positive can return to work/class after 14 calendar days from the date of the last contact. If you are unable to separate from a person in the home that tested positive, the 14-day quarantine would begin after the family member’s last day of quarantine.
- Performers/students/staff/volunteers who were in close contact (defined as being within 6 feet for 15 minutes) with someone with a positive diagnosis of the COVID-19 virus must have a negative test from a healthcare provider before returning to work, class or camp.
Thank you for your continued support, flexibility, and willingness to engage with us in this unprecedented time.
