In the theater

Our Wheeler team takes venue cleaning and ventilation seriously.  We perform regular cleaning and disinfection of the facility and follow strict health department guidelines. Ventilation is in conformance with or exceeds OSHA guidance and CDC recommendations. Ionizers and MERV 13 filters are in all air handlers, multiple air handlers also utilize UV lighting. Control dampers that let in fresh air are 100% open when the building is occupied.
