Health & Safety

Health Safety 1200X628

Health and flexibility are our top priorities. Please read about the protocols we have in place to ensure the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and community. It's best to check this page closer to your visit for the most up-to-date information.


All guests who attend events or gatherings at The Armory must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by the date of their visit. Patrons can show either paper or electronic documentation (including a photo of your vaccination card), along with a photo ID*.

If you are unable to be vaccinated, you may provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before your performance. 

Patrons must be able to show proof that they are fully vaccinated at the time of their entry into the theaters or for lobby events until further notice. When these protocols change, this page will be updated as needed.

"Fully vaccinated" means that at least 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine series or 14 days after receiving a single-dose vaccine.

PCS will accept ANY ONE of the following methods for proving vaccination, along with a photo ID*:

  • Physical vaccination card
  • Photo of vaccination card
  • Other official documentation clearly displaying your name and the date(s) on which vaccine doses were administered, such as a visit summary provided by the organization administering the vaccine.

EXEMPTIONS: Patrons who are unvaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PRC test taken within 72 hours before entering The Armory, along with a photo ID. Proof will be accepted in the following forms:

  • Physical negative PRC test result from a healthcare provider
  • Photo of negative PRC test result from a healthcare provider
  • Email from a healthcare provider verifying negative test result
  • App verifying negative test result
  • Please note that home tests are not accepted

If you are unable to provide vaccine or negative test proof, we will gladly work with you to reschedule your visit.

*Photo IDs are not required for minors accompanied by a parent, guardian, or student group leader.

If you have any questions or concerns about complying with these new rules, please contact the Box Office at 503-445-3700 or .

Note: Please do not email proof of vaccination, test results, or any other medical information to the Box Office. The record of your vaccination status is not, and will not, be kept on file. Proof must be presented upon arrival for each visit.

In addition to our vaccine policy, we are requiring that everyone in the building wear an appropriate facial mask that covers their mouth and nose. Masks are required in all areas of the building except designated areas and while actively eating or drinking in those areas.

Masks may be removed while eating or drinking in designated areas of the lobbies and mezzanine. Masks may not be removed in any space if you are not actively eating or drinking.

If you’re not sure which kind of mask is appropriate, check out this handy guide.


We have a robust HVAC system, complete with MERV 13 filters, that is capable of fully exchanging the air inside with fresh outside air every 10-12 minutes.


We have enhanced cleaning protocols in place, as well as hand sanitizer stations available throughout the building.


For those who prefer a touchless experience, we offer print-at-home tickets.


Our programs are available both digitally and in print. As always, large print copies will be available upon request at our concierge desk.


The Armory Bar will be open. Masks may be removed or pulled aside while actively eating or drinking in designated areas.

Please contact us if you have any concerns and together we can find an option that works best for you.
