Kia Ora Tatou,
As with all regions outside of Auckland, Whanganui is once again moving back to Alert Level 2 from 12pm Wednesday the 12th of August.
Per our previous policy and to ensure safe physical distancing, the Sarjeant is postponing all events during this alert level period. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience. This suspension also extends to classroom activities where physical distancing cannot be guaranteed.
As last time, the Gallery in general remains OPEN for business but we will be limiting entry to a maximum of 20 people to ensure safe 2m distancing. If this number is reached we will operate a one-out-one-in door policy. Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available in the Gallery and visitors will need to provide information to assist with contact tracing. The Gallery also has the QR code available for the contact tracing app.
We are very sad to once again implement this policy, however it is the right thing to do as we redouble our efforts to prevent any possible spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Staff at the Sarjeant send our best wishes to friends, family and colleagues in Auckland hoping you look after yourselves and stay safe during the challenges ahead.
