The Curran Theater has announced its guidelines and updated seating capacity in response to the mandated reduction of public gatherings in San Francisco due to the virus outbreak.
A statement posted to the production's website reads:
"In compliance with the City of San Francisco's mandate, the Curran Theater has reduced its capacity to 1,000 persons and is contacting patrons to voluntarily exchange tickets for any performance that exceeds this capacity.
All San Francisco performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will continue as scheduled with this reduced capacity until further notice.
The health and safety of everyone at the Curran Theater is our top priority, and we are monitoring the ongoing virus (virus) situation closely.
At this time, all performances are proceeding as scheduled. However, if you are unwell, unable to travel, or part of an at risk population, we will be happy to exchange your ticket(s) for a future performance. Please contact your point of purchase to discuss options.
We have also implemented a number of precautionary measures at the venue, including installing additional soap and alcohol-based hand gel throughout our venue and increasing the frequency of our deep cleaning. If you are not feeling well during a performance, please see one of our staff who can assist you.
Below are preventative health tips from the California Department of Public Health:
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.
• Minimize close contact (e.g., recommending no hand shaking or hugging).
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child."
