We are excited to welcome you back to Arts House. Our team has worked to ensure you can enjoy the artworks in our venue with confidence. On this page we’ve outlined a range of safety and hygiene measures that enable a COVID-safe environment for you to enjoy bold new contemporary art.
Health and safety
What health and safety precautions have Arts House put in place?
In line with Victorian Government COVID-19 guidelines, we need to record the name and phone number of all visitors to our buildings and facilities. We are doing this via a touch-free QR code (further details below).
Regular cleaning and sanitising our venues and publicly accessible areas with approved disinfectant products throughout the day. We clean high touch points regularly.

Look after yourself
Visitors are encouraged to carry a mask and wear them where they cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance from other people. We do understand that some people have medical exemptions for wearing masks and will respect this.
