Masks and performances at the Lougheed – Sept. 7 at 1:20 p.m.
Further to the Sept. 3 announcement (see below), the Chief Medical Officer of Health issued a health order 40-2021 on Sept. 3 clarifiying mask requirements and a few other items such as how mask requirements affect performers. Following the current guidelines, performers at shows will be allowed the remove their masks while participating in a performance activity. This means the centre is able to host performances. Masks are required for all patrons and staff.
Patron and staff safety continues to be our main focus at the centre. In light of the Sept. 3 announcement, the bar and concession is closed for the performances in September, however, performances will continue with the mask requirement.
Masks Update – Sept. 3 at 2:10 p.m.
Effective Saturday, Sept. 4 masks are mandatory in all indoor spaces and workplaces, according to Alberta Health Services. What this currently means for the Lougheed Centre is that patrons and staff are required to wear masks. For now, future performances remain scheduled. Please view the safety steps below that we continue to follow.

The best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to wash your hands. According to Alberta Health Services, washing your hands with soap is an ideal prevention of colds and influenza. Along with washing hands, the Lougheed Centre has kept all its hand sanitization stations open. Please feel free to use these stations.
At this time, masks are not required for events, however, anyone wishing to wear masks are encouraged to for their own personal needs. The Government of Alberta’s Stage 3, Open for Summer plan has lifted all mask requirements except for “isolation/quarantine requirements and masking requirements in health care settings and public transit.”
Distancing markers remain in the lobby of the centre to guide patrons as to the two-metre physical distancing, but it is not required to distance.
Building & Theatre Capacity: The Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre will be able to operate at full capacity during the season launch.
