Evanston Art Center COVID-19 Reopening Plan

The Evanston Art Center (EAC) pledges to follow Restore Illinois Phase III Guidelines for Day Camps and Retail(link is external). Specifically, this means:

The EAC pledges to do the following each day:

  • Significantly limit capacity of all studios by more than half the usual capacity. 

  • Limit the number of visitors in our building based on our square footage.

  • Provide additional cleaning of all common areas and high touch surfaces, especially restrooms and door handles. Offering paper towel options to handle door knobs or other doors that cannot be propped.

  • Encourage staff to stay home if feeling unwell.

  • Require all who enter the EAC wear a cloth mask for the duration of their visit.

  • Provide disinfecting wipes for everyone to wipe down surfaces they’ve touched.

All students, visitors and staff must: 

  • Wear a cloth face mask at all times. 

  • Take their temperature upon entry using provided gloves, and share results with an EAC staff member. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4°F or above will not be permitted to remain on site, per Restore Illinois Phase III guidelines.(link is external)

  • Maintain a 6’ distance from others.

  • Stay home if feeling unwell. The EAC will waive its refund policy if students must skip a visit due to potential COVID-19 infection. Ask a staff member for more information.

  • Wash hands with soap for at least 20 seconds before, during and after their visit to open studios.

  • Bring their own tools wherever possible. Avoid using community tools wherever possible.

  • Sanitize their mobile phone as often as possible.

  • Use provided disinfecting wipes to disinfect handles, tools, and any surfaces touched in the studio and building.

  • Where possible, staff and volunteers are encouraged to work from home. When not possible, staff and volunteers will limit interaction
