COVID-19 Protocols and Policies


Updated September 16, 2020

Many activities on the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus are now open.

In order to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone, the following protocols will be observed for all events on the Artis—Naples cultural campus:

Facilities Upgrades

To improve the safety of our patrons, team members, artists and musicians, Artis—Naples will be making the following safety upgrades to our cultural campus:

  • Installation of a needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) system on 29 HVAC air handling units. This patented technology purifies indoor air by eliminating airborne particulates and pathogens in conjunction with increased filtration on the filters.

  • Treatment of 55,000 sqare feet of surfaces around the cultural campus with the antimicrobial coating system Microshield 360, including restrooms, door handles and patron seating. Microshield 360 is an EPA registered and FDA approved antimicrobial technology used to create a coating on surfaces that neutralizes bacteria and viruses.

  • Purchasing one large and six hand-held air-assisted misting machines used to sanitize spaces including Hayes Hall and Daniels Pavilion between performances.

  • Changing of more than 70 faucets on the cultural campus to touchless units.
