COVID-19 Safety Information for Chan Centre Backstage Visitors


Welcome back to the Chan Centre! 


The health and safety of our staff and all visitors continues to be of the utmost importance to us. As we begin to welcome audiences back to our venues, we are following the guidance provided by UBC and Step 3 of the Province of British Columbia’s BC Restart Plan.

As public health restrictions related to gatherings and events are lifted, visitors are encouraged to review the Public Health Order on Gatherings and Events to learn more.

Chan Centre staff will be onsite to welcome you, and we ask that you kindly follow their direction and guidance at all times.

Please note:


  • If you feel unwell, please stay home and use the BC Self-Assessment Tool for guidance.
  • Please enter through the Stage Door only, located at the east side (rear) of the building, and follow all relevant signage when on the premises.
  • Non-medical masks are recommended in indoor common spaces for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination is not required.
  • All visitors to campus must abide by the UBC COVID-19 Campus Rules.
  • There are no longer capacity limits for common areas including the lobby and washroom facilities.
