Regarding Covid-19 and BSO events:
As the Health Department, City, and State are allowing venues to re-open, BSO is beginning to again produce shows in and around Omaha.
BSO is concerned for the welfare of our members and guests, musicians, and the team-members of our venue partners. Everyone should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend shows during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit. Masks are encouraged and all venue restrictions must be observed.
All of our partner-venues will be enforcing all protocols that have been put in place by the Health Department, City, and State. Attendance will be limited to enable safe social distancing.
Regardless of your personal comfort level, regarding going out to venues at this time, please be extremely considerate of invading other fans’ personal spaces.
We look forward to once again sharing great music with all of you!
June 3, 2020, the Douglas County Health Department posted this reminder: “Until there is appropriate medication and a vaccine, the Douglas County Health Department (DCHD) is emphasizing the importance of remembering and continuing to use the only ways we have to protect ourselves.
“Handwashing and social distancing remain important tools to avoid infection,” Health Director Dr. Adi Pour said. “You should wear a mask every time you go out in public to protect those around you.”
