Gallo Center Health & Safety Protocols

In accordance with current guidelines from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Gallo Center for the Arts no longer requires COVID-19 vaccine verification or proof of a negative test prior to entry. The wearing of masks is optional, but encouraged for all persons regardless of vaccination status.

The guidelines above apply to all Gallo Center-presented performances. For policies specific to Resident Companies or other organizations presenting events at the Gallo Center, please contact them directly. If you need assistance, call our Ticket Office at (209) 338-2100.

Patrons who are not feeling well or have recently come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are advised to stay home.


In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gallo Center for the Arts remains committed to providing the safest environment possible for all patrons, artists, staff and volunteers. This includes:

  • Maintaining clean surfaces in all of the lobbies, seating areas, stage, backstage, concession areas, and administrative offices at the Gallo Center.
  • The use of sophisticated new air filtration systems as well as hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility.
  • Training for all staff on safety and cleaning procedures including frequent cleaning and monitoring of all high-touch areas before, during and after shows.
