This is What the ‘Socially Distant’ Travis McCready Concert Looked Like

Featured Health Tech

Two weeks ago we told you the twelve steps needed for a socially distanced concert and now the Travis McCready concert has taken place in Arkansas, this past Friday, May 15th at TempleLive (TL) Fort Smith.

These were the steps:

  1. No Elevator: Balcony only accessible by stairs.
  2. Reduced capacity: 80% less people; from 1,100 to 229.
  3. Sanitization: Venue will be sanitized by an independent third party prior to each event via fog sprayers.
  4. Masks will be required by all attendees and employees. Masks will be available for purchase.
  5. One-way walkways: Per CDC guideline: one-way walk-ways in theater managed by TL employees.
  6. 6 feet of separation from all seating groups or fan pods.
  7. 10 person limit in all restrooms.
  8. No touch: All soap and paper towel dispensers will be no touch.
  9. Closure of bathroom fixtures to maintain 6 feet of distance during use.
  10. Temperatures of attendees to be taken at entry points.
  11. Beverage lids: All beverages will be prepackaged or have lids.
  12. Wipedowns: TL employees will be actively wiping down touchpoints in venue and restrooms.

There you have it. Social distancing. Temperatures taken and more safety precautions. What is most amazing is the mask-wearing concert-goers saying it is nice to feel normal again. Well, we aren’t quite there yet but at least we are able to leave our homes.
