* Changes to the Protocols as of May 28, 2021
With multiple new vaccines and large numbers of people being vaccinated, we have made changes to our protocols to align with recommendations from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The following requirements are now in place for certified organizations. Your standards may exceed this level, but may not be less.
If you make changes to your protocols where you are posting them online, make sure you maintain the same URL. Otherwise, the new URL will break the link on the missouriartsafe.org website.
Masking is recommended for those who are not vaccinated, and for those who are vaccinated when attending indoor events when social distancing is not possible. Staff and front-line volunteers should be masked to provide support for those that need to be masked.
Health symptom checks are recommended, but temperature checks are not required. Staff and front-line volunteers should be checked when audiences or guests are present.
Contact tracing is required only where local health authorities support it.
Future changes to Missouri ArtSafe protocols
The pledge will adapt as circumstances allow or require as recommended by the CDC.
Changes to your COVID-19 plan
If you change or eliminate your protocols to a level that is no longer consistent with Missouri ArtSafe Certification, you may no longer use the logo or designation of Missouri ArtSafe Certified. Please contact us to remove your listing online.
With the support of ArtsKC and the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, the Missouri Arts Council is running a series of free webinars related to Missouri ArtSafe. Watching the webinars is not required for certification. They are designed, however, to help organizations create and implement their COVID-19 safety plans, and navigate other issues that may arise while reopening during the pandemic. The webinars feature Missouri experts in the arts, the law, human resources, and communications. Each webinar is recorded and can be viewed just by following the links below.
