Vaccination & Mask Mandates for the 2022-23 Season
Added Safety Measures in place:
- Ventilation – Soka Performing Arts Center exceeds ANSI/ASHRAE Standards 62.1 and 62.2, which are the recognized standards for ventilation system design and acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). The Performing Arts concert hall’s constant air low velocity distribution air handlers have a minimum of 12 air changes per hour which were designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, and effectively exchanges the air in the concert hall 12 times per hour.
- Disinfection – Restrooms and high touch surfaces (e.g.: door handles, stairway handrails, elevator buttons) are cleaned and disinfected regularly by our custodial staff.
- Hand Hygiene – In addition to Soka PAC’s ample restroom and hand washing facilities, hand sanitizer stations are available at every entry point into the concert hall.
