WINNIPEG — Concert-goers returning to the Centennial Concert Hall will have to adhere to certain COVID-19 protocols when the facility reopens on September 7.
Visitors will be required to wear a mask indoors unless a reasonable amount of physical space can be maintained. In that case, masks can be removed once patrons are at their seats or when consuming food or dinks.
Patrons will also be required to show proof of full vaccination, as well as photo identification when entering the venue.
Children who don’t meet the current vaccination minimum age requirements may attend performances provided they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated caregiver.
Other measures include:
- Only debit and credit cards will be accepted at point-of-sale locations
- Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation staff working an event must be fully vaccinated
- Enhanced sanitization procedures will be implemented inside Centennial Concert Hall and common areas of the Centennial Centre
The Centennial Concert Hall has also recently upgraded its washrooms with contactless faucets, urinal and toilets to minimize touchpoints.
The venue is also in the final stages of removing the distinctive red carpet inside the building and replacing it with a new carpet tile that will be easier to maintain, eliminate tripping hazards, and providing for enhanced acoustic characteristics. The new carpet will be a refreshed shade of red to retain the familiar interior design of the venue.
