Increased Airflow (HVAC) and Improved Ventilation
We have increased fresh air volume into the auditorium in our HVAC system. Our reduced capacity allows the ventilation system designed for a capacity of 800 to only have to exchange air for 350 patrons. Routine air quality testing is occurring throughout campus..
Temperature Checking Stations
In the lobby of ECC Arts Center and throughout ECC’s campus, visitors can voluntarily check their temperature.
Hand Sanitizer Stations
Sanitizing stations are situated strategically across campus, including the lobby of the ECC Arts Center.
Sanitizing and Cleaning
Deep cleaning of all ECC facilities is done regularly by ECC staff. There is an increased frequency of cleaning throughout the building for high-touch areas in the front of house and back of house areas.
Hands-Free Ticket Check In
Ushers will scan your print-at-home ticket or e-ticket using a ticket scanning device.
We ask that you do not come to the Arts Center if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing, within 14 days of the event.
