Updated Health and Safety Protocols
as of March 21, 2023
In light of continuing low community COVID levels in Bernalillo County, Chamber Music Albuquerque will no longer require masking for admission to our concerts. For the health and safety of our patrons, we continue to recommend masking as a voluntary matter. Chamber Music Albuquerque also encourages all audience members to keep current with COVID vaccinations and boosters.
The use of a concert venue with an improved ventilation system is an important component of our efforts to help keep our audiences safe. The air filtration system at the Simms Center, as elsewhere at Albuquerque Academy, has been upgraded to an efficiency level of MERV 13. See https://www.aa.edu/february-4-community-webinar-summary/ (last visited August 1, 2022). This filtration level is recommended by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers ("ASHRAE") in its publication "Guidance for Building Operations During the COVID-19 Pandemic," cited by the CDC in its webpage on ventilation in buildings (updated June 2, 2021).
We have also added a feature to our ticketing that should contribute to audience safety. Areas of the auditorium have been designated as socially distanced -- a seat will be left open between each group of ticket holders in the same row.
Please note that our health and safety protocols are subject to change as conditions may change.
