Benjamin Holland, the circus’s general manager, told KVEO they have worked with health authorities to make sure they can reopen safely.

“We’ve had a couple of municipalities, where they’re like you need to have people stationed to make sure you’re following regulations,” said Holland. “Every single time that happens those people come they fight for us there like you guys are doing an amazing job.”

Holland adds they want to keep safety protocols consistent and have people that clean the entire circus.

“We worked from June last year, June 3rd up until now we have not had a single covid case related to us,” said Holland. 

The show is rated “R”, therefore, those between the age of 13-17 have to have parent supervision but everyone must wear a mask inside. 

“There’s nowhere safer than right here cause the people that work here, work very hard to make sure that everything stays clean,” said Holland.
