COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR MACKY VISITORS

The University of Colorado Boulder’s Macky Auditorium is committed to the health, safety and well-being of everyone at our events. We are actively monitoring the global coronavirus or COVID-19 situation, and would like to point you to updates and resources from the University of Colorado Boulder and Boulder County Health.

To promote the safest possible conditions on campus, CU Boulder is providing enhanced cleaning throughout campus with increased attention to commonly touched surfaces in addition to hand sanitizer stations in key places throughout the venue during events. You can support these efforts by:

  • Washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer,
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick, especially if they are exhibiting cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • Staying home if you are sick. Avoid contact with others except when seeking medical care.
  • Contacting your medical provider if you have any questions or health concerns.

Events at Macky Auditorium are currently happening as scheduled. If circumstances change, we will prioritize the health of our audience, performers and staff by implementing and communicating appropriate changes. In the event of a cancellation, we’ll notify all ticketholders by email and/or phone as soon as possible and notices will be posted in our outgoing voicemail, website and social media.

We highly encourage those who feel unwell to stay home. Given the different presenters that bring events at Macky, each one with its own ticketing policy, please reach out to the appropriate contact if you have questions about your tickets:
