IBO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS 2021-2022
A Commitment to Our Community

We are eager to welcome audiences for our 2021-2022 season! As the COVID-19 case counts in Indiana continue to vary, we ask that all audience members and musicians take precaution when considering event attendance. While it is not a requirement at this point, the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra recommends that all patrons, audience members, musicians, volunteers, and staff be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Our 2021-2022 season will consistent of 5 in-person concerts with distanced audiences. While we are not planning virtual concert premieres, selections from each concert will be available on the IBO YouTube channel. We ask that all ticket holders and patrons review these guidelines before arriving for events. The IBO staff, board and musicians have committed to uphold these standards alongside you. Please write to director (at) indybaroque.org with any concerns. 

5 Ways To Support Indy Artists and Arts Organizations Impacted by COVID-19

  • For events at UIndy, all attendees must complete the campus “Health Check For Visitors” form.

  • All event attendees will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entrance to concert facilities.

  • Concerts will have open seating to ensure the ability for groups who have come together can sit in pods, while distancing from other groups and attendees as they feel most comfortable.

  • Disinfecting wipes will be available to anyone who wishes to sanitize their seat and surroundings in the concert hall.

  • We ask that all attendees maintain 3’ social distance whenever possible.

 

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

  • Community mitigation is a set of actions that people and communities can take to slow the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19. The goal of community mitigation in areas with local COVID-19 transmission is to slow its spread and to protect all individuals, especially those at increased risk for severe illness, while minimizing the negative impacts of these strategies. (CDC)

  • COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 currently circulating, including the Delta variant. (CDC)
