The science surrounding the importance of personal hygiene in preventing the spread of COVID-19 is well-established. Here are some measures we have implemented at the Barclay:
• Hand-sanitizing stations are readily available throughout the venue.
• All Barclay staff with whom you interact will be wearing masks.
• Additional custodial staff will regularly wipe down high-traffic, high-touch areas before, during, and after each performance.
• The Barclay installed all new air handling systems during our closure in 2020. We upgraded to a system that uses MERV-13 filters, which are similar to those installed in hospitals. These filters are designed for indoor environments where controlled air quality is required. MERV-13 filters have the ability to block tiny particles such as bacteria, insecticide, smoke, most paint pigments, and droplets found in sneezes.
