Keeping You Safe

Thank you for planning an in-person visit to the Symphony! We’re looking forward to seeing you again!  

While you’re here, we ask you to work with us to keep the Symphony and all our venues a safe and inclusive space for everyone. As our venues vary, and our partners may have their own protocols, we ask that you please refer to event details for the most relevant information. Our COVID-19 protocols are based on the most up to date Provincial public health recommendations. 


Our Commitment

Symphony Nova Scotia is committed to safety first! We will continue to have comprehensive safety protocols in place for all in-person events, and will adopt recommendations and requirements from the Province and our partners. 

Not everyone will have the same degree of comfort with the lifting of restrictions, and we ask that you please respect the personal space and comfort level of those around you.

 

Stay Up to Date

We encourage you to stay up to date with how we’re Keeping You Safe! Please, continue to visit us here at symphonynovascotia.ca/safety for the latest updates. If you have tickets to a performance, we will share the latest updates with you in your pre-show email!

 Masks

Dalhousie University will continue to require masks in indoor common spaces until June 10, 2022. This includes the Dalhousie Arts Centre, the Dalhousie Arts Centre Box Office, and the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. 

We continue to encourage the use of masks in our office. When worn properly, non-medical masks made of at least three (3) layers can reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19. Learn more about how to choose and take care of a mask.
