Safety First is Our Highest Priority


As DPAC looks forward to reopening, the health and safety of our Community is our highest priority.  Things may look different at DPAC  when we reopen for events.  To protect Guests, Staff, Vendors and Visiting Shows,  we are doing a lot of little things that will make a big difference.


Commitment to Clean

Per CDC guidelines, and using EPA certified cleaning agents and disinfectants, DPAC is deep-cleaned after every performance with high-touch surfaces cleaned more frequently and no less than six-times daily


Clean and Safe Team

Designated Sanitization Compliance Officers, and a 100% increase in cleaning and disinfection staff before, during and after events


GBAC Star Certification

Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) gold-standard certification for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention


Safety Everywhere

We’ve added over 150 hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipe dispensers throughout DPAC


Hand Hygiene

Staff Members and guests required to hand sanitize before entry plus staff frequently wash hands during their shifts



Contactless ticket scanning, restroom fixtures, food & drink ordering and payment processing


Physical Distancing

Staggered arrival times for guests and six-foot distancing markers for entry to lobbies and other places where lines may form


Face Coverings

Face coverings for staff and guests as required by local and state health officials


Wellness Checks

Temperature check and symptom screening for all staff and guests before entry


Sick or Symptomatic?

Easy refunds for anyone not feeling their best

Plus, DPAC is coordinating a $250,000 investment by the City of Durham for new, state-of-the-art cleaning and disinfectant equipment, plus building modifications and touchless fixtures to help DPAC always remain virus free.
