At the Fox, we are dedicated to fostering a safe workplace and patron experience in a public-facing organization within an industry that is connected to travel and large scale public gatherings. Our COVID-19 Preparedness Plan follows performing arts and event safety industry guidance and guidance developed by the State of Arizona, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Arizona Department of Health (AZDHS), state and federal occupational safety and health statutes, rules and standards, Arizona’s relevant and current Executive Orders, and Pima County Health guidance. The procedures and protocols in this plan are reviewed and updated frequently, as local conditions and public health guidelines may change, and are subject to change.

No. Similar to checking ID for age verification to purchase alcoholic beverages, Fox will verify information, but will not capture or retain patron data related to vaccination or test status.
In April 2021, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed an Executive Order which prevents state and local governments from requiring Arizonans to provide vaccination status in order to receive services. Private businesses, such as the Fox, are not prohibited from requiring vaccination documentation in order to provide services or allow entry.
In order to gain admission, proof will be required. Exceptions will not be granted. Thank you for your understanding and for doing your part to ensure that events continue with minimal interruption
Those for whom vaccination is not an option will be required to provide a negative COVID test result, taken no more than 72 hours prior to the event. Please plan to make an appointment in advance to ensure that you are able to get tested within the required window. Information on where to arrange for free testing in Pima County may be found here.
Yes. Per CDC recommendations and the current “high” level of community spread in Pima County, all persons regardless of vaccination status are required to wear a mask while attending events at the Fox, except for brief periods when actively eating or drinking.
As the vaccine has not been approved for use on those under age 12, a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event will be required for all events except Youth & Family and Picture Palace Series events.
For Youth & Family and Picture Palace events scheduled between September 20 and December 31, 2021 – including films rated G, PG, or PG-13 – the Fox will have the following COVID mitigation protocols in place:
We wish you would reconsider because this is a matter of public health, which has effectively shut down the live events industry for 18 months. However, if you would prefer to miss the show, we respect your choice. For those who have already purchased tickets choosing not to comply with the current safety procedures in place, please see the refund policy below.
Please be advised that ticket purchases are nonrefundable. Health and safety policies and procedures, including but not limited to weapons and dangerous items search, providing proof of vaccination or negative COVID test status, mask requirements, and/or social distancing are all subject to change at any time after ticket purchases. Failure, reluctance, or refusal to comply with polices in place at the time of an event does not qualify for a refund. Changes in government regulations or recommendations, revisions to safety protocols as required by either the venue or performing artists, or fear of attending do not qualify for refunds. For tickets purchased prior to policy announcements on August 16, account credits may be considered if requested no less than 2 weeks prior to an event.
