COVID-19 Mitigation Policies

The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent mitigation efforts have changed our world forever and will greatly alter the experience of public assembly for the foreseeable future. As the operator of essential infrastructure for the arts, it is Kranzberg Arts Foundation’s responsibility to define best practices and implement a set of policies and procedures so that art can continue to flourish in our venues. These steps will ensure to the best of our ability the health and safety of all our guests who utilize our infrastructure for artistic expression and to gather to enjoy and experience art of all forms.

Our venues are prepared to re-open with phased capacity, and we will be frequently re-evaluating our procedures based on effectiveness and the most up-to-date public health and safety information.

Enhanced Sanitation / Sanitizer Stations

All Foundation venues and workspaces will undergo professional deep cleanings and receive a comprehensive viral disinfectant fogging prior to re-opening. Our venues will continue to undergo rigorous daily cleanings, with increased disinfecting procedures on all high touch surfaces throughout our many theatres, galleries, events spaces, and workspaces. All venues have sanitizer stations installed at convenient locations including points of entry, common areas, offices, elevator, and restroom entrances.

Covid-19 Dress Code / Uniform Policies

All guests to Foundation arts venues and workspaces are required to wear protective face coverings. All Foundation employees, vendors, contractors, and volunteers whose job scope requires interacting and/or transactions with the public are required to wear protective face coverings and gloves at all times while on duty.

 

Temperature Checks / Health Screenings

The Foundation requires all employees, vendors, contractors, and volunteers to receive health screenings and or temperature checks prior to the start of their workday or entering Foundation venues and workspaces.

Contact Tracing Protocols

To ensure proper contact tracing protocols are in place, the Foundation requires all staff, vendors, and contractors to sign in upon entering Foundation venues and workspaces. All guests to the Foundation will be required to provide full contact information. Additionally, all gallery visits will be by appointment only, all ticket purchases must be made in advance, and restaurants will be reservations only. All special events will require full contact information for all guests in attendance.

Opportunity for Contact-less Public Experience

Foundation venues will offer the public the ability to enjoy art with a contact-less experience. Our security and door staff will open the main entrance doors for all members of the public. There will be contactless ticket scanning for entry. Ushers will open and close theatre doors at appropriate times for entry/exit to the show, and concession/food & beverage service will be provided to patrons with a contact-less option.

Social Distancing Policies

The Foundation will implement crowd control measures to allow for responsible social distancing. These include early entry into theatres to keep lobbies clear, controlled intermission and end of show dismissals, limited access to galleries and event spaces, and new floor plans and seating plots across all foundation venues and workspaces. When in lines, patrons will be encouraged to leave space and remain socially distant and our Foundation workspaces will be retooled to allow for socially distant workstations.

Reduced Venue and Workspace Capacities

All Foundation venues and workspaces will operate at a reduced capacity, determined by public health and government officials, with seating plots and floor plans designed to maintain social distance requirements.

Increased Preparedness Training for Foundation Staff, Resident Organizations, and Volunteers

All Foundation staff, resident organizations, and volunteers will receive enhanced Covid-19 mitigation training focusing on best practices in social distancing, sanitation, and hygiene, transacting with the public, and communications.
