COVID-19 Mitigation Practices at the Virginia Theatre

Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Champaign Park District has adopted the following practices at the Virginia Theatre per CDC, state, and local public health guidelines:

FACE MASKS REQUIRED AT THE VIRGINIA THEATRE
Per an Executive Order signed by Illinois Governor Pritzker on August 26, 2021, all individuals age 2 and up who are medically able are required to wear a face mask while indoors in public settings, regardless of vaccination status.

VIRGINIA THEATRE CONCESSIONS SUSPENSED
Please note that due to the recent increases in active COVID-19 cases in Champaign County the Virginia Theatre has suspended the sale of food and beverages, including liquor, at all public events.

Patrons may, if they choose, bring in a single bottle of water (20 oz or less) for consumption during an event, provided they resume wearing their mask after taking a drink. No other outside food or beverage items are allowed into the theatre.

The Virginia has taken these steps to help ensure that all individuals are wearing a mask at all times while inside the facility.

CLEANING: The Champaign Park District has engaged ServiceMaster of Champaign to perform extra cleaning and disinfecting at the Virginia Theatre, with extra care being taken with touch surfaces, door knobs and push plates, railings, restroom facilities, and countertops.
