The health and safety of our guests, employees, and performers is our top priority. Since the start of the pandemic 18 months ago, the Regent has made every effort to meet or exceed local, state, and CDC guidelines specific to indoor performance venues. As new recommendations and requirements are issued, we will continue to adapt accordingly.
Cases of COVID-19 in vaccinated and unvaccinated residents due to the highly contagious Delta variant have been increasing in Arlington since July 2021. On July 27, 2021, the Centers for Disease Control issued an advisory for vaccinated persons in areas of substantial and high transmission to wear a mask while indoors. A mask mandate is an immediate intervention to prevent the spread of disease within spaces open to the public.
Pursuant to M.G.L. Chapter 111 sections 31 and 104, the Arlington Board of Health adopts a public health mandate effective August 19, 2021, requiring face coverings for all persons at all times when inside public spaces or private spaces open to the public. This mandate applies to individuals aged two years and over except where an individual is unable to wear a face-covering due to a medical condition or disability.
If a customer refuses to wear a mask or cloth face covering for non-medical reasons, a business may decline entry to the individual.
This mandate will be in effect whenever the Level of Community Transmission data from the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for Middlesex County is categorized as either “Substantial” or “High” over a consecutive two-week period.
This mandate will no longer be in effect whenever the Level of Community Transmission data from the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for Middlesex County is categorized as either “Low” or “Moderate” over a consecutive two week period.
