Guest Requirements
Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our artists, staff, and volunteers, are our top priorities. We are committed to following all required State, County, and venue policies, as outlined below:

Mask Policy – SLO County Requirement
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) updated its  Guidance for Face Coverings, recommending mask use for indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are not required in indoor settings.
Please wear a mask, with two or more layers, over your nose and mouth and under your chin. The following are prohibited: Masks with exhalation valves; masks made of loosely woven fabrics; scarves, buffs, bandanas, gaiters, and face shields alone (inadequate protection). Disposable masks will be available free of charge, upon request. View the latest guidelines here.
Health Policy
Stay home if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms, have been in contact with someone known to be or suspected to have been infected with COVID-19 within the last 10 days, or if you are subject to a quarantine or isolation order. For ticket return options, please contact

Free coronavirus testing is available to the public at the old train station in Paso Robles and at the San Luis Obispo Veteran’s Hall. Both locations are open Mondays through Fridays from 7AM-7PM.


  1.  Face masks are optional for all individuals, regardless of COVID vaccination status, in all Campus facilities, including the Performing Arts Center.
2.  Individuals attending indoor events at Cal Poly (including the PAC), as well as individuals participating in these events (including event client staff, crew and performers) will no longer be required to provide proof/documentation of COVID vaccination status or a negative COVID test.

The ONLY exception to these changes are events for which there exists a specific contractual obligation between the event producer/promoter and the artists/production company being presented that mandates that face masks are required for audience members and/or venue personnel; and/or affirmative vaccination/negative COVID test verification is required of audience members and/or venue personnel.  FYI – this condition exists for several Cal Poly Arts presentations scheduled in April and May.
