What We're Doing for You

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

We have implemented an Enhanced Cleaning Program using EPA-approved disinfectants with expedient cleaning of the entire campus. All seated areas are cleaned and sanitized after each event. All restrooms are cleaned before and after each event

Additional Safe and Clean Information

These protocols are based on the most current information available for the live entertainment venue industry, as well as other pertinent industries. As we move forward, we will continue to monitor guidelines from the CDC, state and county for the latest public health guidance to keep our procedures up to date.

Examples of our enhanced health and safety protocols are:

  • Requesting that guests and staff to stay home if they are feeling ill
  • Enhanced air filtration utilizing MERV 13 filters and maximizing outside air
  • Easy access to handwashing facilities and hand sanitizing stations for guests and staff members
  • Training for all staff members on safe and clean procedures including frequent cleaning and monitoring of all high-touch areas before, during, and after events.
