Jacksonville, Fla. (March 29, 2021) – The cultural organizations of Jacksonville, joined by the unions representing stagehands and musicians in Northeast Florida, announce that they will maintain their COVID-19 protocols for the time being.
We thank Mayor Curry and the City of Jacksonville for their leadership on public health and relief funding, which made a limited return to business possible for the cultural community.
We recognize that we have a duty of care to those who enter our institutions, and participate in our programs. Continuing our COVID-19 protocols is necessary at this time to protect the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, artists, and audience members.
The COVID-19 protocols of each organization may vary, but they contain common elements such as temperature checks, requiring masks, and social distancing measures. The public is encouraged to contact each individual institution for specific measures that are in place at that organization.
Each organization will continue assessing its protocols based on local data and the CDC guidelines, and we all look forward to the day when we can enjoy the arts and entertainment again without restrictions.
