Venue Application Checklist

*Under the BOCO 5 Star Program, the Dairy Arts Center is required to take reservations for all patrons. In order to do this, we must consider all events to be “ticketed” (even if free) and collect at least one contact per party.

This allows the Dairy Arts Center to maintain correct capacities and social distancing under the current Boulder County Public Health order, and to keep records in place for contact tracing purposes. 

Additionally, this program requires the Dairy Arts Center to screen all patrons for COVID symptoms and exposure. For each event, a Dairy Arts Center staff (and additional volunteers if necessary) will screen each patron, including a touchless thermometer temperature reading, and record any necessary information before admitting that patron.

If you have any questions, please contact Shay Wescott, Senior Operations Manager, swescott@thedairy.org
