Effective immediately, all theatre events at Arts and Culture Centres across the province have been cancelled until further notice. Rehearsal rooms, smaller classes and art groups with people of 25 or less will still be permitted.

The Provincial Government is actively monitoring COVID-19, as it continues to be an evolving and fluid situation. Officials are monitoring the situation closely, and we are in regular communication with federal, provincial and territorial partners. To date, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the province.

Newfoundland and Labrador public health officials are working closely with their colleagues across Canada to ensure cases of COVID-19 are quickly identified and managed. For information and updates on COVID-19, please visit the Department of Health and Community Services website.
