The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra announced Wednesday night that the organization has decided to move performance venues from from Devou Park in Covington to Tower Park in Fort Thomas.
The KSO's first performance of its free, three-concert summer series in Fort Thomas is on July 11 at 7:30 p.m. The KSO has also released a full list of accommodations regarding Covid-19 safety practices for the event.
Some key points of the plan, outlined on the KSO website, include the following;
- KSO’s staff, musicians and volunteers will wear face masks and encourage the audience to do the same. In some instances, volunteers may also wear plastic face shields.
- Volunteers who handle cash, concessions and programs will be wearing gloves.
- Proper physical distancing measures will be in place. Those who do not live in the same household should maintain 6 feet distance, including but not limited to while awaiting entrance to the restrooms and food truck lines.
- Programs have been chosen to reduce the number of musicians allowing them to maintain physical distancing on stage.

- KSO staff, musicians and volunteers whose temperature exceed 100.4F or have any other symptoms of the Coronavirus will not be permitted to remain on site, and must produce a negative test for the Coronavirus before returning.
- The KSO is providing hand sanitizer, at each feather flags, during shows in the Tower Park amphitheater.
- Increase the frequency of restroom cleaning per CDC recommendations.
- At risk audience members are invited to attend the dress rehearsal in the park at 10:30 a.m. on each scheduled performance date. We also plan to live-stream concerts.
