Additional Customer Protections

o Sanitizer stations at entries will have signage encouraging visitors to sanitize as they enter

· CCC will provide gloves for staff/instructors/volunteers to use when cleaning, but everyone is strongly encouraged to wash their hands regularly regardless of glove use

· Ceiling fans will be on at all times and doors will be open when weather allows to offer additional airflow through the space

· The CCC will run the HVAC systems after closing to provide additional fresh air as well as to capture and remove unwanted particles each day. In addition, the center will increase the filter changes to help further reduce containments from entering the building.

 

 

Programmed Event Guidelines – Phase 2

· Programmed events should be limited to 50% capacity at a time in any given space

· Where possible, event attendance should be staggered to minimize overlap and reduce density of participants

 

The above efforts will be in effect when we re-open during Phase 2 of our re-opening guidelines. We look forward to the day when we can welcome more visitors into our space during Phase 3. All processes are subject to change based on evolving conditions and any new items that arise will be evaluated at the discretion of the Executive Director. Thanks to ALL for your hard work and diligence, together we will keep the arts alive while keeping our community safe and healthy!
