IMMEDIATE MEASURES

In the interest of public health and safety, given the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the following measures have already been taken.

Please know that our top priority is always the health and safety of our guests, artists and staff. We’ve always taken great pride in the cleanliness of our facility, and we recognize that this is more important than ever right now. Given the potential spread of coronavirus
(COVD-19), on top of our daily cleaning procedures, and in addition to following all CDC and county health department protocols, Tempe Center for the Arts has:

  • Increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing of our facility
  • Provided additional alcohol-based hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility
  • Posted CDC-approved signs in all public restrooms to remind the community to wash hands and to encourage safe and healthy practices.

We are deeply committed to our team members and are keeping them informed about current and upcoming issues so they can keep themselves and their families safe. The City of Tempe is providing items to sanitize workstations including disinfecting wipes and sprays, rubber gloves and alcohol-based hand sanitizer, is examining which roles could possibly work from home, if needed, and is reinforcing our standard employee health practices, including encouraging all staff and volunteers who are feeling ill to stay at home

What Can You Do?

  • It is important to stay calm and informed, while taking precautions to prevent the spread of infection:
    Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or in the elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe suitable for killing germs
  • Get a flu shot if you missed one earlier in the season. Many locations and doctors are still offering the flu vaccine.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Follow your doctor’s guidance and adhere to CDC directions.
