Covid Safety Guidelines

Minnesota Center for Book Arts is committed to fostering a healthy and safe environment for all visitors. We follow the current CDC and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some things to expect when visiting MCBA.

MaskS optional

Masks are no longer required. Those who prefer to wear masks are very welcome to wear them, and masks are available for those who would like one.

when to Stay home

We ask that you stay home if you have had a positive COVID-19 test in the past 5 days. If you tested positive 6–10 days prior and have not had a fever for at least 24 hours and your symptoms are improving, you may visit while wearing a high quality mask. Refer to CDC guidelines for more details on isolation and quarantine. If you have any Covid symptoms or have had a recent exposure, we ask that you:

      • Take a Covid test (with negative results) within 6 hours prior to visiting MCBA
      • Wear a well-fitting, high quality mask (MCBA can provide one upon request)

Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout MCBA. Wash and/or sanitize your hands when you arrive and frequently during your time in MCBA’s studios.
