Amid the continually evolving pandemic, the Theatre Arts and Dance Department strives to keep its students, faculty, and staff apprised of University of Minnesota COVID-19 policy, and to provide clear guidance for our audiences and visitors. We welcome you to the performance events in Rarig Center and at the Barker Center for Dance. Please refer to the University of Minnesota COVID -19 Response for details. The following is intended as a general guide and will be updated as circumstances change and/or more information is available.

On October 21, 2021, President Gabel announced that, in compliance with U.S. President Joe Biden's executive order, the University will move from attestation to requiring all faculty and staff systemwide to submit proof of vaccination. Please visit the Get the Vax 2.0 webpage for details.
