2021 GBAC Star Facility

The Classic Center looks to be a leader in appropriately and responsibly opening its venue to staff and guests.  It will be our objective to provide proactive mitigation and avoidance protocols as it relates to public health to keep our staff and guests as safe as possible.  

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE ATTENDING AN EVENT AT THE CLASSIC CENTER:

  • Face coverings are encouraged for adults and children ages two and up.  
  • Individuals that have experienced COVID or COVID-like symptoms within the last 14 days are prohibited from entering the facility.  
  • Hand sanitizers will be made available in a convenient location for those guests utilizing the escalators should they require use of the associated handrails. High touch points will be a constant focus of sanitizing efforts throughout an event by the entirety of Classic Center staff.

If the individual registers a temperature at our above 100 degrees and/or displays common flu/COVID-19 type symptoms, they will be asked to immediately leave the facility as a precaution.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A SHOW AT THE CLASSIC CENTER THEATRE:
