Theatre Scarborough is closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation. The safety of our theatregoers and volunteers is our highest priority.
We are following the lead of Toronto Public Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Public health authorities have reassured Torontonians that the current risk level remains low. Currently, there is no evidence of local transmission of COVID-19 in Toronto.
Until we are instructed otherwise all performances will be proceeding as scheduled. The show must go on!
Theatre Scarborough is taking measures to ensure the health of audiences and volunteers, including:
- Increased frequencies in cleaning and disinfecting of the public and backstage areas of the theatre including door handles, arm rests, and service counters.
- Front of House volunteers may be wearing gloves when handling tickets, programs and money.
- Proper hand washing techniques are posted in all washrooms.
- Volunteers who are feeling unwell are being asked to stay at home.
- We will communicate proactively with our customers should there be any updates in the situation.
How can you help?
Toronto Public Health recommends the following preventative measures:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
• Avoid close contact with people who are ill
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands
• If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
FEELING UNWELL: In consideration of other guests, if you are feeling unwell or have recently travelled to a region affected by COVID-19, we kindly ask that you consider not attending the event. We have relaxed our ticket exchange policy and will happily book you into a later performance or put money on your account for a future production, free of charge. Please contact the box office at 416-267-9292 or firstname.lastname@example.org
