The City of Rifle and The Ute Theater & Events Center takes the safety, health and well-being of our patrons seriously. We have been keeping a careful eye on the emerging COVID-19, commonly known as novel coronavirus, outbreak world-wide. At this time, the City of Rifle is coordinating with the Garfield County Public Health Department & Environment (GCPHE) as we all monitor the progress of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We encourage you to visit the Garfield County Public Health (GCPH) website for updated news and information.

What we are doing

Planning and preparedness: Our administrative team is meeting regularly to monitor the situation and develop an appropriate response. We are working with the Garfield County Public Health
& Environment and local health providers to coordinate planning and information regarding the Coronavirus.

Cleaning: For the safety and health of our patrons, The Ute Theater has implemented extra disinfecting methods before and during each show along with hand sanitizer available throughout the theater.

Cancellations: If an event is cancelled, The Ute Theater will notify ticketed patrons via email as soon as possible. Information will also be posted on our website ( and our Facebook page.

How you can help: Please help protect our community from coronavirus and other respiratory viruses by taking some simple steps.

● CDC recommends frequent hand washing for at least 20 seconds to keep people healthy. At a minimum, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol content.

● Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

● Disinfecting is important – wiping down frequently touched surfaces like a cell phone is a good idea. A regular household disinfecting type of wipe or spray works.

● Stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and properly dispose of tissues.

● Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
