Firehall Arts Centre COVID-19 Safety Protocols

How Seating Has Changed

In accordance with PHO orders made on October 19th, 2021, regarding Gatherings and Events, the Firehall will be increasing it’s capacity to 100% as of October 25th, 2021. At the Firehall this will mean 136 seats will now be available to patrons. We are still asking patrons not to mingle, and maintain seats with those they arrive with, as well as staying in the seats they are assigned.  We ask patrons with any seating requests to let us know online in their reservations notes, or over the phone with a staff member. We cannot guarantee that seating requests will be met, but we will try our best.

Masks

At this time, masks are mandatory for indoor settings. Patrons must wear their masks at all times while in the building, including at their seats.

Vaccination Status

According to the PHO order for Gatherings and Events, as of October 24th, 2021m proof of double vaccination status will be required for entry to the Firehall, as the Firehall falls under the category of, Indoor concerts, theatre, dance and symphony events with more than 50 people. We ask that patrons come prepared with both a valid government issued photo I.D. AND their BC vaccine card.

The following is a list of all the safety measures we’ve put in place so that we may safely continue bringing art to the community we hold dear.

We have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan which will transition in to a Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. This plan is available upon request.

There will be sanitation of surface areas.

Hand sanitizer will be easily available.

We have installed at both of our box office desks, and our bar, plexi glass borders to maintain a barrier between staff and patrons.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact us at firehall@firehallartscentre.ca or at 604-689-0926

We thank you kindly for complying with these safety regulations. The health and safety of our staff and patrons allow us to stay open and operational!
