A local art center is reopening after having to shut its doors temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Panama City Center for the Arts will reopen Friday, June 5th, at 10 a.m. with new policies and procedures in place.

As part of Phase 1 for reopening, representatives say the center will be open 10 a.m. through 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Saturdays. If there is a night class, the building will only be open to students registered in that class.

All visitors are recommended to wear masks in the building and keep a safe distance between each other.

Groups will be limited to ten people. The building will only have 40 people inside, including staff, at this time. If you arrive and the building is at capacity, staff will take your contact information and will call or text you when you are able to come inside.

Representatives say staff will clean high-touch points in the building several times a day and complete deep cleanings a couple times a week. They say after every class, the classrooms will undergo a deep cleaning.

Gallery floors will be marked with physical distancing cues to help visitors gauge safe distances between themselves and other visitors.

Staff will evaluate the procedures and make any necessary changes to improve safety and visitor experience on a regular basis, representatives say.
