Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts puts health and safety first

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) announced its response to the pandemic of COVID-19 will put health and safety of staff and guests first.

THELMA is committed to following the guidelines of the Fond du Lac County Health Department. Procedures and policies may change as the virus impacts our community.

Here are some of the changes:

  • Hand sanitizer available on every floor and at the bars during events.
  • Social distancing is encouraged throughout events and the inside the building. (Circles are drawn on the street to show six feet distance)
  • Temperature checks for all who enter events. (Staff is checked prior to events.)
  • Free THELMA fandanas handed out at events while supplies last.
  • 20 seconds of popular song lyrics on each restroom mirrors as a reminder of proper hand washing.
  • Capacity is limited to 250 for outdoor concerts.
  • A small fee is charged for most outdoor concerts so staff may track capacity.
  • All masks are required inside the facility.
  • No more than 10 people per floor permitted in the Susan O. Ahern Contemporary Wing to view the art.
  • Staff and volunteers that handle money at the gate and bars will not handle drinks or other items. Every effort is being made not to cross contaminate.

Consistent cleaning of railings, door handles, restrooms, and all other high touch areas is being completed by staff.

THELMA is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac’s Arts and Entertainment District. THELMA is a member-based, privately funded non-profit dedicated to providing arts experiences not readily available in the area. Intimate concerts in the Great Hall, street concerts with major performers, indoor films, and art from world-renowned artists are available at THELMA. THELMA also offers a stunning backdrop for weddings, meetings, and all social and corporate gatherings.
