OSF lifts mask and distancing requirements for summer shows

ASHLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Shakespeare Festival will lift mask and social distancing requirements initially put in place for its summer performances, the result of lifted state and union restrictions.

OSF made the unexpected announcement at the end of May that it would restart live performances in July, but the as-yet uncertain climate of COVID-19 at that time meant that considerable restrictions were still in place — mask requirements, distanced seating, and proof of either vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.

The beginning of July saw a sea change for both the state of Oregon's restriction and those required by the actors' union. OSF says that on July 14, masks and social distancing requirements will be lifted within the Allen Elizabethan Theatre and throughout the campus.

As a result, the number of tickets available for Fannie: The Music and Life of Fannie Lou Hamer and OSF's Summer Concert Series have increased, the organization said.

"We are so excited that these wonderful shows will play to full audiences in our landmark outdoor theatre, and we hope you'll join us," OSF continued.

Despite the relaxation of some restrictions, audience members will still need to provide either proof of vaccination or a recent COVID-19 test.
