PATRON INFORMATION

REGARDING COVID-19

Under current restrictions in the Michigan Safe Start reopening plan, we will open with greatly reduced seating capacity. Purchasing online in advance is the best way to ensure you have seat as we welcome you back to The Whiting.

The health and safety of our audiences and artists are of the utmost importance to us. Our Reopening Plan follows the guidance of State of Michigan officials, MIOSHA, OSHA, and the CDC for workplace and performance venue safety.

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING FOR YOUR SAFETY

CLEANING AND SANITIZING PROTOCOL HAVE BEEN ENHANCED
Prior to each performance the entire facility will be cleaned with an electrostatic sprayer that applies a CDC-approved disinfectant that will kill COVID-19.

AIR QUALITY HAS BEEN UPGRADED
A new air purification system has been installed in The Whiting with state-of-the-art virus-killing technology.

ADDITIONAL CLEANING
will be done during shows on frequently touched surfaces throughout the venue and restroom facilities.

TICKET SCANNING
will be touchless.

HAND SANITIZER STATIONS
These will be available in multiple locations.

SEATING HAS BEEN RECONFIGURED
Seating has been configured to ensure physical distance. Groups may be separated and seated in pairs or as singles to ensure the greatest availability of seats at a safe distance for all patrons.
