Otherwise, the production they're calling 'Sanitary-Oke' will look as it did before, with a full stage and lighting setup for performers and hosted by Dave Coalmine.

The event hosts will also be promoting physical distancing measures.

"The message is clear, this is Sanitary-Oke, 'let's have fun while avoiding the behaviours that put others' health at risk,' you know, 'Wash your dang hands!'" Coalmine said.

The event will run on Fridays from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Pogue Mahone, 843 Desmond St.
