Each venue has enhanced ventilation and will undergo thorough cleaning before and after each event.

The Wellspring Theater and Epic Center ventilation systems have been updated with MERV 13 filters for added filtration, and the fresh air intake has been increased. In addition, Wellspring Theater is also using appropriately-sized air cleaners/fans for enhanced ventilation. The Epic Center restrooms are cleaned daily. Wellspring Theater has comprehensive cleaning protocol in place for all events including sanitization of seating areas, lobby, stage and flooring, backstage area, and dressing rooms. High contact surfaces, such as door handles, knobs, and switches, are disinfected before and after each event. Hand sanitizer is readily available in the lobby and theatre. Face masks and other PPE, such as gloves, are also available upon request and as needed.

Western Michigan University’s Dalton Center Recital Hall is continuing to follow best management practices for building HVAC systems in accordance with CDC recommendations. Restrooms and public areas such as entryways, hallways and lobbies are cleaned on a daily basis and extra attention is paid to high-frequency touch points to address concerns about cleanliness and sanitation.
