McCain Auditorium will follow K-State's policies for COVID-19 health and safety procedures on the date of the performance. Currently, the university has implemented a temporary face mask requirement. Everyone must wear a face mask over their mouth and nose while inside McCain Auditorium. If a patron is seen not complying with this policy, they will be asked to wear a mask, ensuring it covers the mouth and nose. If an individual does not comply with the request to properly wear a mask, the individual will be escorted from the premises and tickets will not be refunded. For more information on K-State's COVID-19 policies, visit k-state.edu/covid-19.

Because of the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19 during the 2021-2022 season, if a patron wishes to not attend a show for any reason, the patron can ask for a refund or a credit to their account up to 30 minutes before showtime. As stated above, however, individuals in physical attendance at McCain Auditorium not complying with the mask requirement will not be issued refunds.
