Coronavirus: Precautions at the Richmond Art Center

As you may have heard, public safety warnings have been issued for Bay Area counties to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. Please be assured that we here at the Richmond Art Center are monitoring the situation carefully and are preparing for any potential impact. Should we need to temporarily close, any class scheduled for that day will be rescheduled for a make-up session at the end of season.

We are taking the following measures to ensure safety in public spaces:

  • Staff and volunteers are being asked to stay home if they are ill
  • Provide additional hand-sanitizers in the lobby, entrances, classrooms and bathrooms
  • Ensure sanitary wipes are available to use on common surfaces, tables, chairs, tools
  • Wipe down shared surfaces several times throughout each day

We will continue to monitor the spread of the coronavirus carefully and will inform students, teaching artists and volunteers of closures ASAP by email, and by posting on our website and social media pages.

The Contra Costa County site has information and resources on the coronavirus HERE.

You can refer to the Contra Costa County site for more information or call our Front Desk at 510-620-6772. If you call during a closure, your call will forward to the automated attendant system with a recorded message with reopening information.

We will do all we can to keep you apprised of the situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
