Press Release Regarding COVID-19
We are all aware of the increasing threat of Coronavirus and its impact around the globe. We would like to remind all our attendees that we are watching closely the areas infected, taking all recommended measures, and working with officials.
At Cirque Italia, we work hard to maintain a clean and safe environment; we are disinfecting our tent, bathrooms, tent floors, and seating after every show. We will be stepping up our protective efforts by having disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer available for any shows that may occur in the future.
Please follow the health professionals’ guidelines of practicing good hygiene - frequently wash your hands and avoid touching your face, mouth, and eyes. Stay proactive with your health; strengthen your immune system by eating healthy, upping your vitamins, and try to keep your body healthy and strong.
We would ask that if you have traveled overseas recently, or have been in contact with someone who has traveled overseas recently, and/or you start to experience cold or flu like symptoms, please do not come to the shows. If you are in any doubt, please stay away until you have been given the all clear by your doctor. Please consult the official CDC Coronavirus page for further recommendations and guidelines.
We want to ensure our fans that our team of performers and staff have not been outside of the country in the last year. We have been traveling in the USA the last eight years, not outside of the country.
Regarding our performances scheduled this week (as of March 17th, 2020): there may be cancellations and/or postponements of numerous Cirque Italia shows. Taking into consideration the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for social distancing, as well as the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Cirque Italia has decided we must call for the immediate suspension of the following locations.
Cirque Italia Units:
Silver Unit– (Water Circus I): Waco, TX, Lake Charles, LA, Lafayette, LA, Alexandria, LA, Baton Rouge, LA, and Bossier City, LA
Gold Unit – (Water Circus II): Valdosta, Ga, Columbus, GA, Alpharetta, GA, and Dalton, GA
Black Unit – (Paranormal Cirque): El Paso, TX, Las Cruces, NM, Tucson, AZ and Tempe, AZ
Since we first learned of the virus, the Cirque Italia team has followed all the CDC recommendations. Our priority as a company is to protect the health and safety of our artists, our employees, and our fans.
All customers who purchased tickets for a Cirque Italia show will be contacted by their point of sale. If you have any questions, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are wishing everyone the best of health.
