Covid 19 Protocol

We want to keep everyone safe as we bring people back to in-person events, including audience, performers and staff. Thank you for your help in this.


Mask Policy:


When attending a public event in our space, audience is strongly encouraged to be masked except while actively eating or drinking. All audience seated in the front two rows must be masked.


For private events and for general visits to the Center, guests are strongly encouraged to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking.


Masks are required for all vendors and staff during events. Performers are not required to be masked. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you one.


Our facility is equipped with MERV-14 filters and a state-of-the-art air purification system. We have purchased and added air purifier units with ActivePure technology to complement our return to in-person activities and help provide an additional layer of protection against the spread of Covid-19 in its facility. The units were purchased from Sanalife, a national leader in advanced, indoor air quality and UV-C disinfection solutions for schools, businesses and organizations across the United States. The installation strategy was created in partnership with Sanalife to have the most effective results and are utilized in high-traffic areas. In unaffiliated third party laboratory tests, ActivePure has been proven to reduce up to 99.99% of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), Avian influenza, E. coli, MRSA, Norovirus, Staph bacteria, Candida, Swine Flu, Hepatitis, Legionella, and more.
