COVID-19 Guidelines for Visitors

We’re excited to welcome you back to the RMG!  We have a number of protocols and guidelines in place to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff.

We all have a role to play in protecting each other and preventing the further spread of COVID-19, and we thank you for helping us achieve this goal.

As of April 1, the RMG will no longer require visitors to present proof of vaccination or wear a mask to visit or participate in programming. We will continue to encourage our visitors to wear masks during their visit, and staff will continue to wear masks when onsite. As we all adjust to these changes, let us practice collective kindness and understanding for individual decisions as everyone has varying levels of comfort after living so long with public health restrictions.

We ask all visitors to conduct a COVID-19 self-screening before visiting. If you feel ill, please stay home to help keep our community safe and healthy.

Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we begin to welcome people back into our physical space!
