Quad City Music Guild Statement on COVID-19 – updated March 13, 2020
Update March 13, 2020:
Today, after reviewing the information presented at the QC COVID-19 Press Conference, Quad City Music Guild reached out to the Rock Island Department of Public Health for clarification on their guidelines and timelines. It is their recommendation, for the health of our patrons, that we cancel our spring production, The Secret Garden. We will, of course, follow their recommendation.
Our hearts are heavy for all involved in this beautiful show. Your time, talent, and dedication are appreciated. We are so grateful for you.
Box office volunteers will be in contact with our patrons within the next week to offer the opportunity to donate your ticket price back to the theatre, exchange your ticket for a different production this season, or refund your ticket purchase.
As always, we are so thankful for our loyal patrons. We appreciate your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. Please, take care of yourselves.

Update: March 12, 2020: Governor Pritzker has advised that gatherings larger than 250 people should be cancelled or avoided. As a result, we are limiting ticket sales for each performance of The Secret Garden to 200 patrons. We are committed to following guidelines set by government and public health agencies to keep the health and safety of our participants and patrons at the forefront. We will continue to provide updates as needed. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation!
March 11, 2020: Quad City Music Guild is committed to the health and safety of our participants and our patrons. Currently, the Illinois Department of Public Health is indicating a low risk to residents of Illinois from the COVID-19 outbreak. However, we understand this situation is rapidly changing. As a result, we are monitoring it and the impact it may have on our spring production, The Secret Garden.
At this time, we intend to hold performances as scheduled with the following measures in place:
-hand sanitizing stations available in restrooms and lobby
-cleaning of handles, faucets, drinking fountains, arm rests, etc. before and after each performance
-limiting concessions sales to prepackaged items only
If you currently have tickets and have concerns about being in an indoor performance venue at this time due to personal risk factors, or if you feel ill and it is recommended that you stay home, please contact our box office to discuss refund/exchange options. Again, health and safety remain our top priority.
Should the situation change, we will update our patrons as soon as possible.
Thank you and be well,
Quad City Music Guild
