A letter from Beverly Hess, Executive Director, Center for the Arts:
Dear Center for the Arts Patrons:
We have postponed our rebranding events originally scheduled for this weekend due to the current health concerns. We will announce our rescheduled rebranding events when appropriate.
Our board and staff are committed to the health and well-being of each member of our community. As such, the Center for the Arts is following the recommendations of the CDC and Public Health authorities and taking the following precautions during this COVID-19 (coronavirus) and Flu outbreak:
- Staff and instructors will not work if they are sick or have been in contact with a person who is sick.
- All class participants who are not feeling well or have been in contact with sick individuals are advised to not come to the Center, and to please call to reschedule their instruction. During this time we will waive any associated rescheduling fees.
- The Center has displayed signs throughout the building with the recommended precautions from the CDC. We encourage all visitors to follow these precautions.
- All class and rehearsal participants are asked to wash their hands prior to participation. Restrooms are equipped with hand soap and hand sanitizer. Please use it!
- We are monitoring recommendations with health authorities and should the Center need to close, you will be notified by email at the earliest possible time.
- We are modifying of programming as appropriate to accommodate the current environment.
As recommended by the CDC, there are simple everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread including:
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
