COVID-19 Safety Plan

TULSA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ENHANCED EVENT OPERATIONS PROGRAM

The Tulsa Performing Arts Center has always tried to provide a very clean and safe customer-friendly atmosphere, with a variety of entry points almost always open to all. Generous access to the box office, concessions and our many venues has always been a priority.

With the “new normal,” the need for social distancing and the enhanced personal space requirements, many of our familiar start times, programs and practices will need to change for the foreseeable future. Building access, box office, concessions and venue access will be limited and will require one-way entries and exits and planned routing to ensure adequate space and access is provided.

Due to the requirements for new safety procedures, the exact traffic patterns and seating processes will be different for each event and will be marked and ushered accordingly. In general, the entry and exit for every event will be coordinated with limited entry routes and separate exit routes. The lobby, promenade and stairwells will be managed to maintain adequate spacing and traffic flow.


To help ensure the safety of our audiences, performers and staff, masks covering the nose and mouth will be required for all persons entering the building. (Medical exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.)
* All staff, crew and performers will be required to have a temperature check.
* Additional hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the building.
* Additional signage recommending hand sanitizing and hand washing will be posted.
* PAC staff and ushers will be required to remind our guests to wear their masks. Should anyone refuse to do so, they will be asked to leave.

The Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s daily cleaning and event cleaning regimens have been enhanced to best ensure adherence to Tulsa Health Department, CDC and other government agency guidelines. Our enhanced cleaning regimens include (but are not limited to):

Prior to audience arrival:
* UV air handling and filtering systems tested and operated well in advance of event(s)
