ABOUT THE COVID-19 SAFETY PROCEDURES: 

Clio Art Fair will implement all applicable COVID-19 safety procedures recommended by the CDC and New York State health officials for large-scale indoor events, including that all exhibitors and ticket-holders may present any one of the following in paper form (original documents) or by digital application (photo of vaccination card, or through the State's Excelsior Pass, Key to NYC Pass, Clear application) to gain entry to the event:

  • Proof of full vaccination, which means your final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine has been administered at least 14 days before you plan to attend.

Entry will be denied for guests who do not provide the documentation as required above.

  • Everyone, ages two (2) years and older, must wear a face always covering within the event.

  • Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth.

  • Cloth, surgical/3-ply, KN95, and 95 masks are permitted.

  • Cloth face coverings should be made of tightly woven fabric and ideally composed of two or three layers of material. Cloth masks must fit snugly around the nose and chin to prevent leakage of air; a nose wire may be helpful in achieving a close seal. They may not be made of lace or similarly open or web-like material.

  • Face shields can be used in addition to face coverings, but are not an acceptable alternative to face coverings, as described above.

  • Gaiters, bandanas, and face coverings with an exhalation valve are not permitted.

  • Masks will be made available if you do not bring your own. 

  • Non-compliance with face covering guidelines will result in immediate dismissal from the event.

Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the event for your use. Signage will promote proper hand washing and hygiene practices. Staff will clean and sanitize the restrooms frequently.
