Patrons attending lectures in-person must be compliant with the requirement to wear a mask inside MBL buildings whether vaccinated or unvaccinated. It is important to note that public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those who are unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow the appropriate risk mitigation measures. To provide our guests with a safe and comfortable experience, we will be limiting the auditorium capacity to 50% so patrons will have no one sitting immediately beside them.
The Falmouth Forum is supported by the Falmouth Forum Endowment, the Bakalar Endowed Director's Discretionary Fund, and The Falmouth Fund of The Cape Cod Foundation.
