Duluth Art Institute's COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate
The Duluth Art Institute will mandate COVID-19 vaccination for all students, event attendees, renting artists, teaching artists, and staff who enter our spaces beginning on September 13, 2021. For the wellbeing of our community, it is necessary to do everything we can to preserve the health of all individuals who utilize our facilities, and setting a mandated standard is an important step in keeping the DAI a safe space to engage with the community.
Beginning on September 17, 2021, students, event attendees, renting artists, teaching artists, and staff will be required to provide proof of receipt of your first vaccination shot before the start of your activity with the DAI. Proof of full vaccination status is required by October 25, 2021.
Proof of Vaccination or ExemptionProof of vaccination or exemption may be submitted online. The DAI will also provide the option to submit information in person at the start of your activity with the DAI.
Notarized ExemptionsThe DAI will accept a notarized exemption if you are unable to receive the vaccine and will require proof of a weekly negative COVID-19 test to continue entering any DAI facility.
Should you elect not to provide proof of vaccination or exemption, but instead prefer to withdraw from your class, workshop, or event, full refunds will be issued with no cancellation fee so long as your request is submitted before the start of your activity with the DAI. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund.
Masks will continue to be required for everyone entering any DAI space, regardless of vaccination status.
Youth under 16 years of age are NOT required to present a notarized exemption or negative COVID-19 test result within the week preceding their class. As vaccinations receive full FDA approval for youth, youth will also be required to provide proof of vaccination or a notarized exemption with proof of weekly negative COVID-19 test leading up to their DAI activity on-site.
Gallery VisitsEntry to the galleries does not currently require proof of vaccination for visits lasting less than one hour.
