An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending events at the Long Center and the Lafayette Theater, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

If you or any member of your party or family is not feeling well, do not visit. Plan to come when everyone is well.


The Long Center’s policies and procedures are guided by the following resources: Indiana State Dept. of Health, Centers for Disease Control, Tippecanoe County, Indiana Tourism Association, and the Association of Performing Arts Presenters. New protocols will be added and updated frequently.
