As the team at Perseverance Theatre gears up to open our doors to the community once again, we are working tirelessly to ensure that our organization can continue to mitigate any potential harm as a result of COVID-19 transmission. It is with this in mind that the following policies exist – Perseverance Theatre strives to be of service to the community in all that we do, including protecting the health of our neighbors.
Since the postponement of our production of Fun Home, we have been monitoring any updates provided by the Center for Disease Control, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, the City and Borough of Juneau, and Dr. Anne Zink and reflecting those updates in our policies through the summer. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of scientists and health professionals across the globe, Perseverance Theatre was able to open our doors to students aged 12-18 for the 2021 STAR Program. We implemented the following policies and saw tremendous success in preventing the transmission of COVID-19 within our facilities. See our full list of guidelines below.
PERSEVERANCE THEATRE COVID-19 PROTOCOL FOR AUDIENCES AND GUESTS
Attendees must provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 completed at least two weeks prior to the event.
Proof of vaccination must be in the form of a vaccine card or official record or a photo of a vaccine card or record and a matching photo ID.
Prior to entry to the theatre, Perseverance Theatre patrons will be greeted by our staff and will be screened via questionnaire for symptoms of COVID-19. All patrons will have their temperatures taken via contactless thermometer. If a temperature of 100.4 degrees fahrenheit or greater is taken,you will be asked to wait in a designated area for 10 minutes. Your temperature will then be taken again, if it remains elevated you will be asked to return home and we will work with you to reschedule your ticket.
All audience members are required to wear properly fitting masks or face coverings that cover the nose and mouth when inside Perseverance Theatre facilities. Staff are required to wear masks as well. If you do not have a mask with you, Perseverance Theatre will provide you with a mask, free of charge.
As an arts organization, we feel enormously fortunate to have the opportunity to once again welcome the community to our space while producing opportunities for artists to share their gifts. As audience members, we invite you to play your part by keeping our cast and crew safe so that the show may go on.
We look forward to seeing you again.
