Health and Safety
To the best of our ability, TimeLine will ensure a clean environment and nurture wellness for our staff, audiences, performers, and production teams. The following protocols have been developed by our COVID Safety Committee with advice from public health experts and our peers across Chicago. All policies are subject to change based on evolving guidance from the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, and the CDC. These protocols are subject to change as the pandemic evolves.
Masking is currently required for all audiences and TimeLine staff, in TimeLine Theatre’s spaces. TimeLine Theatre staff will be following CDC guidance to determine what is an appropriate face covering. Any patrons or guests entering the building without an appropriate face covering will be provided a disposable face mask.
Sanitization and HVAC
TimeLine will ensure that all high-touch surfaces are cleaned regularly. There will also be hand-sanitizer stations available, although we encourage our audiences to wash their hands as often as possible.
Additionally, TimeLine has invested in air filtration devices across our spaces. These devices are stationed in key locations to circulate the air and remove particles with 2 HEPA filters.
Ticketing and Risk Assumption
TimeLine will continue to be a first-come, first-served general admission theatre. Following the protocols above will allow us to operate at full capacity (99 seats).
Patrons who are not feeling well, are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, or have had or been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days, should not attend a show. If you are unable to attend a performance due to these reasons, please contact us to discuss flexible exchange and refund options.
All patrons understand that there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those purchasing tickets and attending TimeLine Theatre productions and events voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
