Historic Hoyt Sherman Place announced the re-opening of its box office beginning this Monday, June 1 at 10 a.m. for in-person transactions. The venue has been shut down since the novel Covid-19 virus began making its way across the globe in March.
The re-opening will come with additional precautions for the venue’s staff and patrons, a press release stated. When on site, patrons are asked to take note of signage and new protocols that have been enacted to keep all parties as safe as possible. No other areas of the venue will be available at this time.
Extra precautionary measures have been taken, said venue officials, and include:
