The Morris Performing Arts Center and Century Center are reopening their doors to the public.
Live shows, music, conferences and more will all return as St. Joseph County moves from orange to yellow on the Indiana COVID-19 color-coded map, though with a few restrictions.
Following CDC guidelines, both venues will require face masks and social distancing for all staff, vendors, contractors, clients and guests. Performances will also have reduced capacity seating at the Morris Performing Arts Center until further notice.
Both venues will provide the following:
- Enhanced cleaning procedures – both in type and frequency
- Daily deep cleanings and disinfections with emphasis on high touch point surfaces via an electrostatic sprayer
- Air duct cleaning
- Air filter changes and upgrades
- Increased use of outside air through air handlers
- Hand sanitizer dispensers located at key areas such as entrances, elevators and stairs
- Plexiglass protectors for customer interaction
- Messaging throughout the facilities to reinforce proper social distancing and hygiene practices
- Health screen questionnaire for all staff upon arrival at the facility, in addition to a temperature check and training for staff
