COVID-19 Response Statement
Tecumseh Center for the Arts, which is owned and operated by the City of Tecumseh, will follow the guidelines set forth by the State of Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services, as defined by their Emergency Order Under MCL 333.2253 – Gathering Prohibition and Mask Wearing. Tecumseh Center for the Arts will be opening with the following safety guidelines in place.
Capacity Limits: 10/7/2020
Mask Requirement | Hand Sanitizer | Social Distancing: 10/7/2020
Everyone in attendance at events held indoors at Tecumseh Center for the Arts will be required to wear a mask.
Pre & Post Event Cleaning Guidelines: 10/7/2020
Tecumseh Center for the Arts is currently working on a contract with a professional cleaning company to sanitize before and after each performance. This includes touch points like doors, handles and counters as well as auditorium seats, carpeting, floors and entry points. Additional information will be provided once a contract is signed.
Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-183: Safe Start on Thursday, September 24, 2020. Under this new order, it is stated that:
"Moreover, this order relaxes the restrictions on attendance at social gatherings and organized events, which were previously fixed at 10 people indoors and 100 people outdoors for most of the state. Beginning October 9, 2020, most non-residential indoor venues can host social gatherings and organized events so long as they maintain fewer than 20 people per 1,000 square feet and require facial coverings. Performance venues and stadiums, similarly, will be permitted to operate at 20% seating capacity. Such gatherings and events must be no larger than 500 people in the largest indoor venues, in order to reduce the risk of a “superspreader” event. Outdoor gathering and event restrictions will also be relaxed, so long as they maintain fewer than 30 people per 1,000 square feet, or 30% seating capacity, up to 1,000 people in the largest outdoor spaces."
Tecumseh Center for the Arts is currently developing re-opening plans with the City of Tecumseh and the Lenawee County Health Department. The plan will include limited ticket sales of 114 seats per show, a maximum number of patrons and guests in each area of the theater, mandatory mask requirements, contract tracing procedures, and social distancing guidelines.
Tecumseh Center for the Arts will provide its re-opening plans and guidelines to all renters, performers and patrons over the course of the next few weeks.
Tecumseh Center for the Arts is owned and operated by the City of Tecumseh and will be operating during the COVID-19 outbreak as directed by the City of Tecumseh. The City of Tecumseh is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the Lenawee County Health Department in response to the confirmed cases of Coronavirus COVID-19 in Michigan. First and foremost, we are taking steps to protect the health and safety of our City employees and residents to the maximum extent practical.
