Covid Protocols

Effective October 1, 2021 and will be updated as needed.

In the interests of public health and safety, WSLR+Fogartyville has joined #SafeArtsSarasota.  We have instituted policies to keep our patrons and performers safe and healthy. We continue to operate with reduced seating for indoor events so that we can comply with social distancing. For the time being our food truck remains closed.  Patrons are able to bring their own food/snacks to the venue.

Here are the key policies we’ve instituted: 

All patrons aged 12 and older attending a performance indoors must show either: 

  • A negative PCR COVID-19 test administered by a medical provider/official testing center no earlier than 72 hours before the time of their performance OR  
  • A negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test administered by a medical provider/official testing center no earlier than 24 hours prior to the time of their performance. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry. 

Both physical and electronic presentation of documents will be accepted. Photo identification must accompany the presentation of all documents. 

If patrons prefer, CDC or other official vaccination record showing the patrons are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 14 days since the final dose) may be voluntarily presented at the door as an acceptable alternative to negative COVID-19 test results.  

Protocols will be revisited and may be revised based on CDC guidance and the evolving circumstances of the pandemic, including use of additional screening protocols.  

Masks Required for All

Since we care about your health, masks are mandatory for everyone throughout Fogartyville, except when seated at your table eating or drinking. Masks must cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly around your face and chin. If you don’t have a mask, we will provide one for you. 

Social Distancing Standards

Please remember to maintain a considerate distance from others before, during and after the show. 

Hand Sanitizing

A hand sanitizing station will be available at the Entrance. Please use it as needed.


All Fogartyville staff are vaccinated.  Volunteers are required to show proof of a negative Covid test within the past 48 hours or can voluntarily show proof of vaccination.  Anyone who tests positive or shows symptoms of Covid 19 must self-quarantine until they receive a negative test.

Reduced Seating Capacities

Seating capacity at Fogartyville has been reduced to allow for social distancing. When being seated,  please make sure to leave adequate distance between yourself and other guests so everyone will be able to comfortably enjoy the show.

Monetary Transactions

Cash will be accepted at the door and for beverage sales. No-contact payment options are also available and are encouraged.  Bar service has been suspended for concerts and servers will be available to take your order and deliver it to your table.

Food & Drinks 

Although masks are required when entering or moving around the venue, they may be removed while enjoying food and beverages. Please help us to protect yourself and those around you by wearing your mask when you are done eating and drinking. 

Self-Check Your Health

If you have had contact with someone with Covid-19 symptoms such as a fever or cough, or have symptoms yourself please self quarantine and come back to see us when you are well.
