Symphony assures public it's taking precautions for concerts

The Hendersonville Symphony said it is taking precautions to protect public health before two upcoming concerts at Blue Ridge Community College.


Here is a statement the symphony put out today:

In light of the news and concern regarding the Coronavirus, we want to share with you some of the steps that the Hendersonville Symphony is taking to advise and protect our patrons against the spread of Coronavirus, as well as everyday illnesses like the common cold and flu.

As you know, we have two concerts coming up at Blue Ridge Community College (the Hot Club of Cowtown this Saturday, March 14 and the Hendersonville Symphony concert on Saturday, March 28). We have communicated with leadership at Blue Ridge Community College and they have implemented thorough processes and procedures to help ensure everyone’s protection as much as possible. Hand sanitizer will be available for patrons and the College has integrated advanced cleaning of facilities, especially high traffic areas. The College law enforcement and safety team are in ongoing training and communication with local public officials to stay informed of any conditions that could warrant concern and further action.

In addition, we are monitoring the situation daily and will continue to take the recommended steps as suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and our local governmental health agencies and providers. Be assured that we will reach out to our patrons immediately if the status of any performance changes and also share with our local news media.

We also encourage our patrons to use simple, everyday actions that protect us all from respiratory viruses, including frequent handwashing and properly covering every cough or sneeze.
The Hendersonville Symphony wants to do our best to ensure the safety and health of our patrons.
