Full Covid-19 Policy

The Erie Art Museum is excited to welcome the community back safely to Gallery Night this fall. Due to the large attendance expected for this event, the Museum is implementing the health and safety protocols below in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our goal is to protect patrons, visitors, staff, artists, and volunteers, as well as mitigate the potential for the spread of COVID-19 in our community. These protocols will be updated in accordance with CDC and Erie County guidelines on an ongoing basis. This is not only intended to keep our patrons safe, but to allow them to visit and enjoy Gallery Night at the Erie Art Museum with peace of mind.

Gallery Night Covid-19 Protocols:

Guests will be required to be fully vaccinated with the Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine and must show proof of vaccination and photo identification at the time of their visit. “Fully vaccinated” means that on the date of Gallery Night, a guest has received their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or their single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, at least 14 days prior.

Guests with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the event start time. COVID-19 tests must be administered by an official testing center. Self-administered tests will not be accepted.

Children who are ineligible for the vaccine due to their age are welcome at Gallery Night and must be accompanied by an adult that meets the above vaccination requirements. Children younger than the age of 2 are not required to wear a mask.

Entry will be denied for patrons who do not provide the documentation as required above. This policy applies to all members of a patron’s party. 

Masks will be required inside the Museum while community COVID-19 transmission in Erie County reach ‘substantial’ or ‘high’ as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (status available here). Everyone must wear a facial mask covering that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times, except for when drinking or eating. Approved facial protective coverings include masks which are constructed of cloth tightly woven fabrics, such as cotton and cotton blends and contain two or three layers of fabric. Gaiters, bandanas, ski masks, scarves, face shields, or vented masks, etc. are not approved facial protective coverings. Surgical masks, KN95 masks, and NIOSH-approved N95 respirators are considered to be approved protective coverings.

We are eager and excited to once again return to Gallery Night, but we as a community must first do our part. Monitor your health and the health of your family. If you feel ill for any reason, please do not come to the Museum. Your health and safety, and that of our other patrons, our artists and our staff is our highest priority. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to restart Gallery Night as safely as possible and look forward to seeing you soon!
