Vaccine & Safety Protocols
At CTC, the safety of our patrons, students, artists, and staff is our highest priority.
We continue to monitor and follow the guidelines and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) as we develop and refine our COVID-19 Safety Practices & Policies to ensure a safe and clean experience for everyone. We will continue to update our practices and plans as circumstances and guidelines change.
