FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARIZONA (June 16, 2020) – Seventeen Arizona museums, cultural venues, arts advocacy organizations, performing arts organizations and performing arts venues jointly announced today that they will require all visitors and patrons to wear masks or face coverings while visiting their various businesses as they reopen. The organizations are: Arizona Broadway Theatre, the Arizona Science Center, Arizona Theatre Company, Artlink, ASU Gammage, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, Del E. Web Center for the Performing Arts, Flagstaff Arts Council & Coconino Center for the Arts, The Fox Tucson Theatre, the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Center for the Arts, The Phoenix Theatre Company, Scottsdale Arts, Taliesin West & the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Tempe Center for the Arts, and West Valley Arts.
As these organizations have different venues, exhibits, and programs, each will have reopening dates and other policies and procedures based on their unique circumstances. It is recommended to contact each organization for details on their reopening efforts. Additionally, some mask requirement exceptions may be made, based on age and special needs, with policies varying among the organizations. These organizations have also committed that all staff who have any contact with the public will wear masks, rigorous cleaning protocols will be instituted, and other precautions will be taken based on each organization’s COVID-related policies. Visitors are also encouraged, and in some cases required, to make reservations or purchase tickets online in advance of their visits so crowd size can be managed in accordance with each space’s capacity while making accommodations for adequate social distancing.
As circumstances evolve, each of these organizations will make future decisions about the requirements of mask wearing individually. People are again encouraged to contact individual organizations regularly for their specific policies and procedures.
