COVID-19 Policies & Procedures

Updated February 15, 2023


Based on current guidance from the Arlington Department of Health, CDC, and other local and national public health agencies, Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA) will no longer require proof of COVID vaccinations for participation in our programs, including classes, camps, exhibits, performances, and events. 


  • While ACA no longer requires proof of vaccination, we strongly encourage full vaccination for all of our constituents – if you haven’t yet received your COVID-19 vaccination or boosters, you can learn more about where and how to do so at


  • While masks continue to be optional at ACA, they are strongly recommended, and we encourage everyone to review current masking recommendations  from the CDC to inform their personal choices.

ACA is aware that public health guidance re: COVID-19 continues to change and evolve – all current policies are subject to change, in order to best align with current guidance and to preserve the safety of all of our constituents. Please be on the lookout for updated policies and protocols moving forward.

ACA’s 2023 Vacation Arts Camps

The Arlington Center for the Arts will no longer require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for campers and staff in our Vacation Arts Camp programs. Please note: while masks are currently optional for campers, they will continue to be required for our camp staff in light of the intensive nature of the camp program.

ACA Prioritizes the Health of Our Community

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, ACA’s top priority remains the health and safety of our community. We continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19, following guidelines and recommendations from the Town of Arlington, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


These policies may change to reflect new protocols, guidelines, and best practices as they continue to evolve.



Please contact our staff directly at if you have any questions or concerns.
