COVID Protocols

The health and well-being of our community and members is of utmost importance to us.

The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF) is dedicated to remaining a safe and welcoming place for our community and visitors. In response to coronavirus (COVID-19) and to support efforts to help reduce the spread of the virus, we have implemented new protocols, procedures, and guidelines. We recommend getting acquainted with the modifications before you visit. Your visit to OCAF will look different but know that these new protocols and guidelines are there to provide a safe and great experience with great art for all of our visitors and staff.

Below is how to plan for your visit and our new protocols and guidelines, developed in alignment with official health and government recommendations.

OCAF will be operating at a significantly reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. For those visitors that are part of a vulnerable population, senior citizens, or simply exercising extra caution, we have further reduced capacity.

What to Know Before You go: Guidelines for Visiting

If you feel unwell or have symptoms of COVID-19, please visit another day.

Please use preventative measures such as washing your hands for at least 20 seconds and using the hand sanitizer stations located throughout OCAF.

Please respect and maintain social distancing of six-feet or more between unrelated social groups at all times. Social distancing indicators such as stanchions, floor graphics, and signage can be found throughout the facilities.

Face coverings

Please wear face coverings for the protection of all visitors and staff. Face coverings will be available onsite for visitors who arrive without them.

New Safety and Cleaning Protocols & Procedures

OCAF has supported and will continue to comply with all local, state, and federal regulations regarding COVID-19.

To ensure proper social distancing, OCAF will be operating with limited capacity in our galleries, Rocket Hall, and School Studios.

Face coverings are strongly recommended for all staff and volunteers on duty in accordance with state regulations.

Hand sanitizing stations will be available at each of the 3 facilities.

All staff team members and volunteers on duty will follow good personal hygiene guidelines, including washing hands and increased sanitation.
