A Safe Return

Our COVID-19 Safety Policies and Procedures

Latest as of: 5/28/21

After more than a year, we are thrilled to open our doors and welcome you back to the Commonweal!

In accordance with the CDC and State of Minnesota recommendations, we’re altering our COVID-19 protocol:

  • Capacity restrictions have been lifted. We are now open at full seating capacity.
  • Mask Mandate:
    If you are fully vaccinated, masks are not required.
    If you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask. (You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you received your final dose of the vaccine.)

    Reminder: All shows are available for streaming.

  • Tickets for all shows are now available to purchase and reserve online.

All details are subject to change. Please check our website frequently for updates. Information will also be sent via News & Notes, our e-newsletter, and posted on our social media platforms. If you do not currently receive News & Notes, we highly recommend subscribing by contacting our box office, or sign up HERE. And follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter—see the links at left (for desktop users) or below (for mobile users).
