Live Arts Reopening: Safety Guidelines, Best Practices & Procedures

New York Live Arts is committed to the safety of our staff, artists, and audience members.

As we reopen our space to staff and the public, we have created a Safety Reopening Plan which details the procedures and protocols required by the NYSDOH for reopening by activity as well as the systems upgrades we have made on site.

Some crucial features we’ve added to our protocol include:

  • There will be a limit on visitors in the space to align with the city’s current social distancing protocol.
  • If the gallery is at capacity, visitors may be asked to wait outside the gallery or return later.
  • Visitors are required to wear masks for the duration of their visit.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided for visitors at the front desk.
  • The front desk will abide by a paperless policy.  Information about the exhibition is available here
  • New York Live Arts has installed the Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization system which has been shown to neutralize 99.4% of SARS-CoV-2 in just 30 minutes.
