The doors are open again on a limited basis at the National Comedy Center in Jamestown. The center opened Friday for the first time since the start of COVID-19 pandemic, doing so at 25-percent capacity. "This is about the National Comedy Center being a national-scale cultural institution that has mission-based work that is important," said Executive Director Journey Gunderson.

All visitors and staff members are required to submit to a temperature-check upon entering the National Comedy Center and interactive displays are engaged with the use of a disposable stylus. Masks are required. All visits need to be prescheduled and are separated to enhance social distance.
