In light of updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – and in recognition of dramatically improved metrics on campus and in the local community – Pennsylvania College of Technology, and by extension the Community Arts Center, is updating its COVID-19 mitigation protocols, including removing the indoor-masking requirement, effective Friday, March 4.


What does this mean for the CAC?

With the easing of COVID-19 protocols, we’re happy to announce that masks are now optional for CAC patrons for most events. Going forward, we’ll continue to follow Penn College guidelines, which are informed by CDC recommendations and evaluated at regular intervals to maximize safety at all PCT locations.

Please be aware, however, that while we have relaxed our masking requirement, some nationally touring performers still require masking and other precautions for audience members, and we’re contractually obligated to enforce those requirements for some performances at the Community Arts Center. All of the event pages on our website ( will now include language regarding masking and other precautionary guidelines for that specific performance, so if you’re not sure whether the performance you’re attending will require masks or proof of vaccination, check the event page for guidance or call our Box Office at (570) 326-2424.

We’re also happy to confirm that drinks will once again be allowed in the Martin Theatre. Next time you visit us, grab one of our spill-proof cups filled with your favorite beverage, and enjoy!

Thank you all for your patience and compliance throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and thank you for continuing to support arts and culture in central Pennsylvania.
