Health and Safety Policies

Welcome to the Strand!

Knox County is currently designated by the CDC as LOW RISK (Green) for virus transmissions.
  • Wearing a mask that fully covers your nose and mouth is RECOMMENDED but is not required at this time.
  • Until further notice, the Strand Balcony will be reserved as a “Masking Only” section, to allow for those who are high-risk or prefer to take additional safety precautions during their visit.
  • Some shows, and Performing Artists, may REQUIRE masking—please check show pages on this website for more information.
  • Please continue to practice social distancing when choosing your seats and while moving around the theater.
  • Safety protocols will shift if CDC COVID-19 Community Levels indicate an increase in risk (Yellow or Red).
Strand staff will be monitoring patron compliance with these safety protocols.



  • The ventilation system has been upgraded with a new control module allowing pinpoint control of fresh air flow, UV light purification, and MERV-13 hospital-grade air filtration. 
  • Extra staff time has been allotted for enhanced cleaning of our auditorium, restrooms, and common areas, and a hand sanitizer station has been installed. 
  • A plexiglass barrier at our concessions counter protects both staff and patrons.
