Know Before You Go – COVID-19 Guidelines

Our goal is to ensure that you can immerse yourself in art and art experiences in the safest space possible. To make this possible, we have implemented several safety measures throughout the Gallery.

  • If you are not feeling well, showing any COVID-19 symptoms, or have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 please stay home. We ask that everyone does a self-assessment before visiting.
  • We are providing voluntary contact tracing check-in upon entry to provide Public Health with your information to contact you in the event of a possible COVID-19 exposure. Text ‘Keyword’ followed by First & Last Name to 22022. Standard message and data rate apply. If you do not have a cell phone or text plan, we provide the option to log in via a website. Your check in record is automatically deleted after four (4) weeks. SimplyCast does not sell your information or use it for any other purpose.
  • The use of a non-medical mask is mandatory for the duration of your visit.
  • We have set a capacity limit to ensure that visitors can follow physical distancing measures.
  • Please ensure that you practice physical distancing.
  • Use the hand sanitizing stations that have been installed for your use.
  • We have increased cleaning efforts in public areas and high touch surfaces.
  • We ask that all visitors follow the hygiene protocols posted in washrooms.
  • We are committed to continue assessing these changes and implement further changes for visitor and staff safety as Public Health guidelines change.


All areas of the Yarmouth Gallery are accessible.
