OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) – The Grand Oshkosh has adjusted its plans for performances.
According to its website: The center is scheduled for a soft re-opening Sept. 12.
“Our goal is to give you a sense of safety and well-being as you return to The Grand,” it says.
A new brochure carries the subtitle, “The curtain rises again.”
Here are the guidelines at performances:
– Seating capacity will be reduced from 554 to 223, keeping a minimum of 6 feet between occupied seats. Groups of two, three, and four seats will be spaced throughout the theater.
– Face masks will be required for staff and volunteers.
– Face masks will be mandatory for patrons in high traffic areas. Once patrons are seated, they may remove their mask “and enjoy a beverage.”
– Masks will be available for purchase onsite.
– Prior to every performance, employees and volunteers will undergo health screenings, including temperature checks.
– Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building.
– A methodical cleaning process will occur between every show. The auditorium and other public spaces will be sanitized with an electrostatic sprayer.
– Instead of tearing patrons’ tickets, ushers will mark them with a writing utensil to reduce contact.
– Instead of paper programs, patrons will need to bring a mobile device to access digital playbills.
