Statement 1 on COVID-19 - March 13 2020
Dear friends and patrons,
We are closely monitoring updates from Toronto Public Health and Health Canada regarding COVID-19, and following the guidance of health authorities in assessing risk at our venue.
At present, as the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low, performances are going on as planned. However, this could change rapidly. If the situation changes, we will inform patrons as soon as possible.
Crow’s Theatre has implemented the following risk mitigation strategies:
- Implementing social distancing
- Access to multiple hand sanitizing stations in the lobby
- FOH staff are sanitizing surfaces before and after each performance, including arm rests, railings, and counters
- Implementing check-in without ticket exchange
- We have been in contact with our professional custodial company to insure increased vigilance in wiping down shared surfaces.
However, if you have travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days, or are feeling even slightly ill, we encourage you to stay home.
