In Buenos Aires city, the Columbus Theatre (Teatro Colon), one of the world’s most important opera houses, offered its facilities and staff to support "Detect", a program promoted by the Health Ministry to perform COVID-19 tests.
Like other cultural institutions, the Columbus Theater had to reconvert its activities due to the closure of public performances. Last year, it returned 140,000 tickets previously sold for an artistic season that could not take place.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 300 employees have voluntarily collaborated in health activities such as the management of a hotel for preventive isolation, street awareness campaigns, and mask making.
This Argentine cultural center will resume its activities as epidemiological conditions permit in 2021.
