Michigan Opera Theatre’s COVID-19 Safety Plan
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we operate the Detroit Opera House differently to ensure a safe environment for our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff.
We have been and continue to carefully prepare for our reopening in partnership with NSF International. This has been a thorough process, one that considers many variables, state and city guidelines, close coordination with city government and fellow local institutions, and ongoing discussions with our own staff as well as peers around the country. Circumstances may change at any moment and we remain confident that we will be able to serve our patrons under the safest possible conditions and in compliance with the law.
We all have a shared responsibility to keep patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers safe. Please do not visit the Detroit Opera House if you:
- Have symptoms of infectious illness or have been exposed to someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19 within the past 14 days
- Have traveled internationally in the past 14 days or visited a location confirmed to be a source of a COVID-19 outbreak
- Have a body temperature of 100.4 or higher, unexplained or abnormal coughing, sneezing, sore throat, fatigue or difficulty breathing
- Believe you may be carrying or are ill with COVID-19
- Everyone in the Detroit Opera House or at any associated event must wear a face mask unless prevented from doing so by a medical condition in accordance with current state guidelines. Face masks must fit properly and securely cover your mouth and nose. Face masks with vents or valves are not permitted as they do not help prevent the spread of the virus according to the CDC. Face shields are not accepted as substitutes for masks, but they may be worn as an added layer of protection.
Enhanced cleaning procedures are in place. You may notice our staff disinfecting areas regularly around the building.
Visual markers are in various locations to help you maintain the proper 6-foot distance from other individuals and groups reminding you of safety guidelines.
Hand sanitizing stations are located in highly visible and accessible locations throughout the building. Training protocols and routine evaluations are ongoing.
