Re-opening Plan

Columbus Recreation and Parks Department is excited to share that the Cultural Arts Center is reopening! We’ve worked hard to create a plan for thoughtfully and carefully providing programs and activities to serve our loyal arts community. The health and safety of participants and staff is our top priority, and we have implemented rigorous, department-wide procedures, which include:

  • Registration and class size are limited.
  • All participants must complete a waiver form at the time of registration, either online or in person.
  • Access to our facilities is limited to registered participants and staff, with the exception of those who are onsite for in-person registration.
  • Participants must perform daily well checks at home. If you feeling sick (cough, fever, nausea, runny nose, etc.), you must stay home.
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times unless otherwise noted.
  • Staff will perform temperature checks on each participant when they arrive at our facilities.
  • Social distancing – staying six feet away from others – must be observed at all times, with an understanding of the challenges and limitations for social distancing with very young children and individuals with disabilities.
