Health and Safety Protocols

** UPDATED MARCH 4, 2022 **

Effective March 31, 2022 masks and COVID-19 vaccination are encouraged, but not required to attend a Maryland Symphony Orchestra performance at the Maryland Theatre.

Patrons may choose to mask at any time. Patrons with COVID symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should, out of consideration for all patrons and musicians, isolate at home and wear a mask when around others.

This updated policy is aligned with the CDC’s February 25th masking recommendation update and after careful deliberation by the Maryland Symphony Orchestra’s COVID Advisory Group. The new CDC guidelines are based on county-reported COVID risk levels. Washington County is currently at medium risk.

Despite the change to this policy, if you don’t feel well, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19 or been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please consider staying home and enjoy the live stream of our concert performance.

PLEASE NOTE: These protocols currently in place are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19. While we will provide the most up-to-date public health procedures to improve patron safety, they are not an absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Patrons assume their own risk by entering the facility.


If any patron does not feel safe when their event approaches, we will gladly refund their ticket purchase up to 48 hours before an event. For those patrons who purchased tickets prior to this latest change, if this negatively impacts your decision to attend, full ticket refunds are available. Please email our Box Office at or contact the box office at 301-797-4000.
