COVID-19 Safety Protocol @ Buddies In Bad Times Theatre

The following is taken directly from Buddies In Bad Times Theatre's COVID-19 Safety Protocols page
You can also check this directly on their website here


Our staff have been monitoring provincial and city regulations, and have used this information to create a Covid Safety Package. The key protocols encompassed in our Covid Safety Package are as follows.

March 1: update:

As of March 1, Buddies will be continuing to ask that all staff, artists, patrons, and members of the public entering the building show proof of vaccination. This direction will continue into the spring, and will be revisited regularly by our joint health and safety committee over the coming months. In line with provincial regulations, masks must also be worn while in the space. Our top priority in continuing these measures is the safety of our audiences, artists, and staff members. 

Reduced Capacity

For the time being we are operating at reduced capacity indoors, and will post room capacities at specific entryways. Capacity may vary depending on the configuration of the room for a given event, and our ticketing availability will also vary from event to event as a result. 


Patrons, staff, and visitors must wear masks inside our facilities at all times, unless performing live/on-screen during filming, or drinking or eating (see below).

Patrons can now enjoy a beverage while visiting the bar in the cabaret space. Masks must be worn when not actively drinking. Plexiglass barriers have always existed in our Box Office, separating staff from patrons, and we have installed additional plexiglass at the Bar. 


The supervising staff member of any event will arrive 30 minutes prior to the artists and/or in order to:

  • sanitize handles and prop open any doors that will be used over the course of the rehearsal/event
  • sanitize dressing room(s) chairs, desktops, and high-touch surfaces (light switches, door handles, etc)
  • sanitize the dressing room(s) bathroom(s)
  • sanitize the universal bathroom
  • sanitize any props and technical equipment being used (ie. tables, microphones, lighting console, etc)
  • check to make sure all incoming artists have filled out their Screening Forms for the day


All visitors entering the space are required to fill out a Screening Form each day they intend to enter the space, prior to entering the space. These forms are also to be filled out by the supervising staff member, who will monitor the information provided on the waiver.

If anyone refuses to fill out a waiver, is experiencing symptoms, or has had possible contact with the Covid-19 virus, they will not be permitted to enter the space and may contact the Joint Health & Safety Committee with any questioins (

If any visitor discovers that they were infected in/around their time in the space, they are required to report this information to the Joint Health & Safety Committee.


All patrons, including people attending a performance, an event, or the indoor or patio bar, are requested to present valid proof of being fully vaccinated upon entry to any space at Buddies.

If you were vaccinated in Ontario, and need to download a vaccine certificate you can do that here.

If a medical reason prevents providing this document, patrons will have the ability to notify us at the time of booking tickets and accommodation will be made, provided that the patron can supply proof of a negative PCR/molecular COVID test administered no more than 72 hours prior to the attended event. As well, patrons must present written proof of a medical reason, provided by either a physician or nurse practitioner that sets out:

1) that they cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19; and

2) the effective time period for the medical reason (ie. permanent, or time limited).

If time-limited, the physician or nurse-practitioner should indicate how long it is expected to last, and a secondary letter will be requested if the patron remains unvaccinated beyond that time.
