ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Rockford’s two largest venues have implemented a new No Re-Entry Policy as part of their safety procedures.

Anyone who attends an event at the BMO Harris Bank Center or the Coronado Performing Arts Center won’t be allowed to re-enter once they exit the building. This includes those who want to smoke. Another ticket must be bought for re-entry. This updated policy is to ensure the safety of its fans, entertainers and staff members.

The BMO and Coronado were a small number of venues left that didn’t enforce this policy.

“This is a new policy for our venues but it’s not new to the industry. We are very late bloomers in this area. We wanted to get the word out before everyone started flooding our venues to make sure that they were prepared,” says ASM Global Rockford Executive Director Gretchen Gilmore.

As part of the new policy, they are asked to utilize the time before shows or events to smoke and/or place personal or prohibited items in their vehicles.
