Reopening Guides and Resources

Safety is USITT's top priority when it comes to our members as well as the industry as a whole.

As the world begins to reopen, it is imperative that our industry adapts to and puts into place new safety precautions and procedures. Many industry professionals as well as government health organizations have put together reopening guides, resources, and new safety procedure information in light of this "new normal" for our industry. View reopening guides and resources.

These resources are to be used as a tool for industry professionals to reference when preparing to host mass gatherings, and open their theatres, businesses, venues, etc. Below you will find links to these resources. This list will be updated weekly so be sure to check back from time to time.
