Dear Zhou B Art Center Community,
In light of recent news regarding the spread of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), we will be implementing changes to ensure the health and safety of our community. After careful consideration, we have decided the art center will remain open to the public by appointment only. For our resident, you will still have access to the building. Our team apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and will continue to monitor the coronavirus, providing updates as the situation develops.
Our priority is to ensure the health & safety of you, your family, and our community. If there is a need to cancel the future 3rd Fridays, we will keep you informed.
We continue to look forward to bringing Art to our Chicago community and promote the local artists. And we will keep everyone informed as we navigate through this process.
During this time, we request that everyone routinely check The Centers for Disease Control and Illinois Department of Public Health websites for guidelines and safety protocols.
Please note that the IDPH states that if you are returning from an area identified by the CDC as "Level 3" (presently China, South Korea, Italy, and Iran) that you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon your return to the U.S. Please note that areas listed as Level 3 may change. For further information regarding travel notices, please visit: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/
We also request that everyone continue to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, please use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
Additional precautions are as follows:
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Thank you all for your vital assistance in keeping the Art Center a safe and prosperous community. Please stay tuned for additional information.
The Zhou B Art Center
