How we are making
The Midland Theatre safe for YOU.
Consulting with The Licking County Health Department
We have met with local health officials on several occasions to walk The Midland Theatre in order to determine the safest experience for you, our volunteers and staff.
We are working closely with Keck's Quality Cleaning, and their informed staff has suggested two hospital grade cleaning solutions for us to introduce:
Biotrexx™ is a total touch protection system where 100% of all surfaces are protected from the growth of dangerous viruses, germs, bacteria, molds and other harmful environmental pathogens for up to 30 days between cleanings. Our protective barrier reduces the risk of bacterial cross contamination on high touch, high risk surfaces.
Clorox® Total 360® System, the first system that pairs electrostatic spraying with Clorox® disinfectants and sanitizers. Electrostatic technology enables superior coverage into hard to reach places. Using the Clorox® Total 360™ Electrostatic Sprayer to apply Clorox® Total 360™ Disinfectant Cleaners gives you a healthier facility.
In accordance with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), face masks will be optional. We strongly encourage those who aren't fully vaccinated or are otherwise immunocompromised to continue wearing face masks and practicing social distancing.
Why are masks optional?
We have chosen to align with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), which lifted the mask mandate on June 2nd, 2021. In accordance with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), face masks and social distancing are optional at The Midland Theater, however, we strongly encourage those who are not fully vaccinated or are otherwise immunocompromised to continue wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
Do Midland Theater staff members & volunteers wear masks?
Midland Staff: All Midland staff members have been vaccinated and are not required to wear masks. Midland Volunteers: Volunteers who have been vaccinated are not required to wear masks. To protect patrons and other staff, those volunteers who have not been vaccinated to-date are required to wear masks until fully vaccinated.
Will children be allowed to come to the theater?
Children can attend all shows with appropriate ticketing.
Will there be beverage service available?
Yes! The bar will be open and beverages will be available before the shows and at intermission.
What about cleaning procedures?
We will be cleaning and sanitizing high-use areas frequently (lobbies, bar area, and bathrooms). The HVAC system has also been upgraded to improve air circulation and filtration.
We are frequently adding great programming, doing ticket giveaways and much more, so stay connected with us!
Without the generosity of The Midland Theatre family and friends, we would not be what we are today. There are a number of ways you can be a part of something very special here at The Midland Theatre.
