WSO Response to the Novel Coronavirus
(Wheeling, WV) The Wheeling Symphony Orchestra wants to make you aware that we are closely monitoring the new developments surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our priority is to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to keep our patrons, artists, musicians and staff safe. In addition, the Capitol Theatre management and staff, like us, are vigilantly monitoring all recommendations by keeping in touch with the health department and following all protocols. They have added additional hand sanitizing stations, as well as increasing their cleaning of all touchable surfaces, including door handles, armrests, railings, restroom fixtures, and counters.
At this time, our performance of Beethoven at 250 on Friday, March 13 is currently scheduled to take place. If anything should change and we need to cancel the performance, we will alert ticket holders immediately by email, phone, and through our website and social media outlets.
We ask that all guests follow the guidelines of the CDC by washing hands often with soap and water, avoiding contact with those who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Most of all, we ask that if you are sick or in a high-risk group, please do not attend the performance.
For those patrons who have purchased tickets to tomorrow night’s performance and wish to change to another performance in the 2019-2020 season, we will waive all change fees and process your requests. In addition, subscribers can consider donating your tickets back to the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra and receive a donation receipt. Please contact the box office at 304-232-6191 and we will assist you.
We thank you for allowing us the opportunity to create beautiful music for the Ohio Valley. Thank you for your efforts in this important area, and we will continue to update you as this situation unfolds.
