What To Expect When You Visit
As we work together to ensure Zoellner Arts Center is a COVID-safe venue, here are some measures you can expect on your upcoming visit.
MASKS ARE OPTIONAL
Mask-wearing is aways an option when distancing is not possibe for indoor events. See the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for prevention guidelines. The CDC Coumty check tool will assign counties a level of low, medium or high, taking into account local COVID data including hospital admissions, the number of occupied hospital beds, and the total number of new cases in a given region. Communities listed as high are advised to wear a mask indoors in public.
We will make every attempt to seat you away from others if that is your wish. Please inquire with Ticket Services if distanced seating is available for the event you are purchasing. If you are uncomfortable with your seating location, you may ask the box office about moving to alternate seats.
There are 12 air handlers throughout the center and they completely exchange the air at a rate of about 12 times an hour.
OUR STAFF IS THERE TO HELP
Ushers and event staff are available throughout the performance to monitor everyone’s safety, and to assist in any way they can. If you feel uncomfortable at any time, please speak to one of our friendly staff who will assist you.
PLEASE RESPECT THE RULES AND PATRON'S CHOICES
These rules have been created for the safety of all patrons, staff, and artists. While masks are optional, we respect everyone's individual choice to wear, or not wear a mask, and we ask that you do the same.
To ensure timely entry, please arrive early for your performance. Once you have entered, we ask that you move swiftly to your seat to avoid crowding in the lobby.
AT THE END OF THE SHOW
At the end of the performance, please allow extra time to exit in an orderly fashion and avoid crowding. Most of our theaters have multiple exits. Once you have exited the theater, we ask that you promptly move away from the doors to ensure others can exit without congestion.
Our public spaces and theaters are cleaned regularly, and our professional cleaning staff will remain on site throughout the performance to clean washrooms, touchpoints, and high traffic areas.
All Lehigh students, faculty, and staff are required to be fully vaccinated unless they have received a medical or religious exemption.
PLEASE NOTE: The protocols currently in place are subject to change in compliance with revisions to national, local, and university guidelines regarding COVID-19. Please check the Campus Status Page for more information and updates. Please contact Zoellner Ticket Services with any questions or concerns you may have. While we will provide the most up-to-date public health procedures to improve patron safety, they are not an absolute protection against contracting COVID-19. Patrons assume their own risk by entering the facility.
We’ll provide as many contact-free transaction opportunities as possible, such as mobile tickets, digital programs, and self ticket-scanning.
