Safety-first values bring success at the New World Center
As a pillar of Miami’s cultural community and one of the premier event venues in South Florida, guests at the New World Center, home of the New World Symphony, remain a top priority. Whether you’re here to produce a virtual conference, recording, concert, a unique community event, or a private party or meeting, providing you with an exceptional experience is of the utmost importance to our team.
Our community (and the world at large) is experiencing what we can certainly call unprecedented times, prompting all of us to make significant adjustments to how we go about our lives. At the New World Center, we’ve implemented specific policy and procedural changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. When you host or attend an event at the New World Center, you can be confident that every detail has been considered for your health and safety.
Leading the Community in Adhering to Expert-Recommended Safety Standards
At the New World Center, our experienced events team has developed and implemented a site safety plan that aligns with the CDC, State, City and County governmental guidelines. With our enhanced health and safety procedures, we are confident we are doing everything we can to preserve the exceptional experience you have come to expect from us, while maintaining the highest standard of guest safety.
A Participant in the MB Standard Program
The New World Center proudly fulfills the recommendations outlined by the MB Standard, a program designed by the City of Miami Beach to recognize community businesses that consistently follow enhanced safety measures. Ultimately, the program’s goal is to support the community in informed decision-making, making it clear which local establishments prioritize guest health and safety.
To achieve the MB Standard, the New World Center commits to:
- All employees working in the facility are required to have COVID-19 tests monthly and submit results within one week of testing.
- Health and temperature screenings conducted each day an employee works within the facility.
- Clear contact tracing protocol.
- Monthly reporting to the City of Miami Beach, noting the employee testing process and execution, as well as measures taken if deemed necessary by test results.
AND, we have gone above and beyond by putting additional provisions in place. These include, but are not limited to:
- Face covering and social distancing requirements
- Frequent cleaning of high-touch areas
- Sanitization with FDA-approved disinfectants
- Disinfection (electrostatic spray and wipe)
- Hand sanitizer available in multiple locations throughout the facility
