Additional precautions being taken to ensure your safety:

Our partners at Portland’5 Centers for the Performing Arts, who manage the Keller Auditorium and Newmark Theatre, are working hard to secure the safety of all patrons in the concert hall. Recently, the theaters received certification from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), composed of international leaders in the field of microbial-pathogenic threat analysis, mitigation, response, and recovery. This accreditation means the facility is implementing the industry’s highest standard for cleaning and disinfection of infectious agents like the coronavirus. Additionally, Portland’5 has upgraded the filters in all air handlers that serve significant portions of public and performance spaces and are also following state recommendations on incorporating outside air into ventilation systems.

As always, in conjunction with Portland’5, we will continue to follow all State and Oregon Health Authority guidelines regarding health and safety measures, including regarding mask-wearing requirements.
