COVID Safety Practices for Our 2022 Season
The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, with guidance from medical experts and local public health authorities, has developed best-practice COVID safety protocols—which we’ll monitor and update as necessary—to keep our patrons, staff, volunteers, and artists safe, healthy, and comfortable. All our COVID safety protocols and procedures meet or exceed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Mexico Department of Health.
We appreciate your help in observing these protocols so that we can safely present great chamber music concerts to a wide-ranging audience this summer.
All Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival staff members and musicians are fully vaccinated. Vaccinations are strongly encouraged but not required for entry to Festival concerts.
Face masks are required indoors at all times in St. Francis Auditorium and The Lensic Performing Arts Center, regardless of your vaccination status. Musicians will perform on stage without masks.
Per CDC guidelines, we recommend frequent handwashing and sanitizing to prevent the spread of germs. We’ve placed hand-sanitizing stations, which contain commercial-grade sanitizer, throughout the New Mexico Museum of Art.
The Festival has engaged the services of a commercial cleaning company to thoroughly clean and sanitize the New Mexico Museum of Art’s restrooms before each concert.
We’re providing Festival tickets digitally for touchless entry into St. Francis Auditorium as well as traditional physical tickets for your convenience. Please have your phone, printed-at-home tickets, or standard tickets ready for scanning when you enter the auditorium.
PATRONS EXPERIENCING COVID-19 SYMPTOMS
If you or a recent close contact are experiencing CDC-recognized COVID-19 symptoms or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days, we ask that you prioritize community health and safety and stay home.
For the health and safety of our community, any patron who refuses to follow our current COVID safety protocols will be required to leave both St. Francis Auditorium and the New Mexico Museum of Art or The Lensic Performing Arts Center immediately. The Festival will not provide a refund to any patron who’s been asked to leave a concert for COVID safety violations.
