These safety measures are designed to offer the theatre experience we all love in a responsible way. We understand that these times are challenging, and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigate through this as responsibly as we can. The MTS Health and Safety committee will continue to monitor and adhere to current NMDOH guidelines and mandates.

About These Measures
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our volunteers, and those working at or renting with MTS. You must follow all safety instructions while participating in any project at MTS. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
By participating at MTS you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
These policies are subject to change at any point.
MTS Health Guidelines
- Health and Safety Coordinator will be designated for each production. This is the go-to person for questions regarding Health and Safety policies.
- All members are strongly encouraged to wash their hands or use the hand sanitizer provided every time they enter the building, including after a short outdoor break.
- Patrons are no longer required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test to be allowed entrance to the building, but vaccination is recommended.
- If a patron thinks that they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and/or exhibiting symptoms when they have tickets for a production, MTS asks that they refrain from attending and the Box Office may exchange the patron’s tickets to another performance if availability allows.
- Actors are no longer required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test to be allowed entrance to the building, but vaccination is recommended.
- If an Actor thinks that they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and/or exhibiting symptoms they should not enter the theatre.
- This includes actors, crew, production team, band/orchestra members, board members, etc. Testing is not required unless there is a known exposure and/or the individual is experiencing symptoms.
- All above policies apply to the Summer Camp participants except for the vaccination requirements. Summer Camp participants are not required to be vaccinated to participate.
