An update on Sarjeant on the Quay operations in Level 2.
After exhibitions have been installed and the building has undergone a thorough clean, Sarjeant on the Quay will reopen to the public at 10.30am on Saturday 11th September.
All visitors must wear a face covering in the Gallery and shop and to ensure your comfort as well as physical distancing of two metres, numbers in the gallery space will be limited to 20 visitors at a time. Once that limit has been reached a ‘one out, one in’ policy will be enacted.
The NZ COVID Tracer QR Code is available for scanning, otherwise all visitors will be required to provide their name and phone number to enable contact tracing.
Handwashing and sanitising stations will be available to all visitors and regular cleaning of surfaces will occur throughout the day.
No education classes will occur at Sarjeant on the Quay until we are in Level 1 and suitable distancing can be guaranteed. In the meantime the Sarjeant’s educational resources will continue to be provided online.
The Sarjeant’s object gallery above the iSite will remain closed until we are in Level 1, and no events will be held until we have reached Alert Level 1.
Kia kaha, stay safe everyone.
