Fayetteville’s live theaters require visitors to get vaccinated and take tests


FAYETTEVILLE – People attending shows or exhibitions at Walton Arts Center and TheatreSquared will no longer need to provide proof of covid-19 vaccination or test negative, but will continue to wear masks.

The Walton Art Center’s policy change will take effect on Monday. TheatreSquared’s requirement to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test ended on Sunday.

A press release from the Walton Arts Center said the updated policy is in response to a downward trend in new cases of covid-19 in the region as well as a growing percentage of the population vaccinated against the disease. Policy could change based on public health guidelines or laws.

Fayetteville has a mask mandate for interior public spaces. Last month, city council voted to extend the term until the city’s board of health recommends it be lifted or relaxed, or if a court ruling renders the term unenforceable.
