Statement regarding Governor Herbert's Executive Order SONDERimmersive strongly supports the mandate put into place by the Governor on November 8 regarding mask wearing, parameters for public events, and putting a pause on informal gatherings.
There have been concerns as to whether THE CAROUSEL is included in the category of social gatherings or extracurricular activities that need to take a 2-week pause. In a press conference on November 9, Governor Herbert made it clear that private events such as ours are safe to proceed because there are strict safety protocols in place and enforced.
As a business, SONDERimmersive has been pro-active in meeting and exceeding all health and safety guidelines, and in closely examining this mandate, we remain excited to proceed with our run of THE CAROUSEL.
In the words of Liz Christensen of the In The Telling podcast: “As cautious as I am about live events during this pandemic, my family of four is headed to see THE CAROUSEL. With the efforts of SONDERimmersive to stay COVID safe, I feel more comfortable about doing this than eating at a restaurant; which we haven’t done.”
