· All visitors will be asked to use Victoria Hall second floor washrooms.

· Please do not visit the AGN if you’re feeling unwell. Our staff have also been instructed to stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness.

· AGN staff will be wearing masks and we’re asking visitors to wear masks as well. Disposable masks will be available at the Front Desk for $2.00 each for those who don’t come equipped with their own.

· Use the hand sanitizing stations located throughout the galleries.

· Remain at least two (2) metres apart from other visitors at all times.
