As we gather again for artistic experiences, please review the following guidelines and information.

As we gradually reopen and welcome back patrons, Strathmore is making steady, thoughtful changes that prioritize the comfort and well-being of ALL patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers. We are balancing our enthusiasm to reopen with consideration for those on our campus who may be vulnerable to exposure and/or compromised in some way. Our goal is to create an environment where as many people as possible can confidently return to enjoy the arts at Strathmore. 

We appreciate your patience during this transition. We continue to monitor recommendations from health officials and adapt our safety protocols as needed. Read current protocols below, and return to this page for the latest information. We also recommend carefully reviewing individual pages for any events you plan to attend. If you have questions, please contact us at strathmore@strathmore.org.

Air Quality

Our HVAC systems completely turn over indoor air with fresh outside air every 15 minutes thanks to the installation of MERV 13 air filters in all of our venues. These high-efficiency air filters remove pollen, allergens, and airborne germs.


From the beginning of the pandemic, Strathmore has prioritized caring for our visitors and community. From enhanced disinfecting processes and installation of MERV 13 air filters to implementation of special procedures for visitors, we remained continuously focused and responsive to recommendations from health officials.

In July 2021, Strathmore achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, Strathmore has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in its facilities.
