El Capitan Theatre Code of Conduct
For the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests, we ask that you comply with the following Code of Conduct while at the El Capitan Theatre.
Guests who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to wear masks during their visit, except while actively eating or drinking in their seat.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the State Public Health Officer strongly recommend that you continue to wear a mask indoors, no matter your vaccination status. Guests may provide their own disposable or reusable face coverings, or ask a cast member for a mask should they choose to wear one. At this time, based on guidance from health authorities, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings. Surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with a good fit are recommended instead of cloth masks.
Face coverings must:
• Fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth
• Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
• Be secured, for example, with ties or ear loops
• Be made of breathable material, either disposable or reusable
• Costume masks are not considered face coverings. In alignment with our existing code of conduct, costume masks may not be worn by any guests age 14 or older.
