Health and Safety
Updated September 15, 2023
The Binghamton Philharmonic follows federal, state, and local health and safety guidelines at its venues. The Philharmonic's main metric is the CDC's COVID-19 Community Level report, updated weekly on Thursday evening.
Broome County Forum Theatre
The Forum has undergone significant health and safety upgrades. The ventilation system is equipped with MERV 13 air filters, UV sterilizers, and an enhanced air refresh rate. In accordance with current CDC guidelines, masks are not required for audience members.
Other Safety Measures
Philharmonic staff: All Philharmonic office staff have been fully vaccinated with booster.
Philharmonic musicians: The musicians work under a Collective Bargaining Agreement through Local 380 of the American Federation of Musicians. Health and Safety policies are determined collectively, and the musicians' policy backstage and onstage may differ from the theatre's policy.
