A RESPONSIBLE RETURN TO THE HALL

As we welcome audiences back to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and The Music Center at Strathmore, we understand the ongoing impact of COVID-19. As of July 1, 2021, all restrictions have been lifted in Baltimore City and Montgomery County, including limitations on venue capacity. Seating within the concert halls will not be socially distanced. While we strongly encourage you to protect yourself and fellow audience members by wearing a mask and being vaccinated, we do not anticipate that these measures will be required for attendance during the 2021-22 concert season.

Note that this policy is based on current guidelines and is subject to change. We will continue to follow all guidance and update our protocols accordingly. To provide a responsible return to live music from our extraordinary orchestra, the following measures will be implemented for the 2021-22 season.

• Masking is not required, but is expected for individuals who have not been vaccinated. We encourage wearing a mask for anyone that feels it would make them more comfortable inside the venues.
• BSO venues are mask-friendly environments and staff will be masked.
• Vaccination status will not be checked when entering the venues.
• For the protection of audience members, staff, and musicians, if you feel sick, please stay home.
• Restroom facilities at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall will be completely touchless.
• Additional points of entry and exit with security guards and ushers at each point will be available at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
