Visitor Health & Safety Policies
The health and well-being of our visitors, staff, and community is our priority, and we continue to follow public health guidance to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Thank you for helping to keep Homewood Science Center safe for everyone to enjoy.
Proof of Vaccination: Beginning Monday, January 3, 2022, visitors ages 5 and up attending programs at Homewood Science Center must show proof of vaccination. This is a temporary measure meant to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid a complete shutdown. We will evaluate this requirement on a regular basis and announce changes at the appropriate time.
Proof of vaccination can include:
physical vaccine card
photocopy of the card
digital photo or app on your phone
printed record from a vaccine provider
All guests over the age of 16 must provide photo identification with their proof of vaccination (two doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or one shot of Johnson & Johnson, at least two weeks prior to entry).
Children 5-11 years old: Show proof of at least one vaccination shot prior to entry.
Children 0-4 years old: Proof of vaccination is not required.
The vaccine requirement does not change Homewood Science Center’s masking policies (see our masking policies below). The vaccination mandate is an additional protection, in accordance with current public health guidelines for our region.
Masks: Face masks are required for everyone two years old and older. Masks should be worn over your nose and mouth for the entirety of your visit.
Mask refers to a complete and tight knit fabric or cloth, or a medical mask that is appropriately sized for the individual’s face to snuggly cover the nasal openings and mouth without the necessity of being held in place by the individual’s hands.
Bandanas, gaiters, masks with valves, mesh masks, and face shields without masks may not be worn. We encourage any visitor who is not comfortable wearing a mask–or cannot wear a mask for any reason—to return to Homewood Science Center when masks are no longer required.
Physical Distancing: Physical distancing is encouraged.
Hand hygiene: Hand sanitizer is provided throughout the building.
Health: If anyone in your group is not feeling well for any reason, or is within the isolation or quarantine period for either COVID-19 exposure or a positive COVID-19 test, postpone your visit for another day.
Risk: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Those visiting Homewood Science Center do so at their own risk to such exposure.
To promote a safe environment, we reserve the right to require visitors who do not follow our guidelines to leave the premises immediately. Any visitors who are disrespectful or discourteous to other guests, staff, or volunteers, or who engage in behaviors that are disruptive of others’ enjoyment of Homewood Science Center, may also be asked to leave.
