Fogging machines are being used to disinfect auditoriums and staff are cleaning and sanitizing surfaces after every guest interaction, paying particular attention to high touch points such as counters, POS and payment terminals.
New measures have been introduced to ensure that a safe distance is maintained throughout the guest journey such as installing instructional signage and deploying safety ambassadors to guide guests on best physical distancing practices.
The capacity in the auditoriums has been reduced and seats in front of, behind and next to a guest’s selection will be left vacant to maintain physical distancing. The occupancy has also been decreased in other public areas such as restrooms and elevators.
