COVID Guidelines

The High Museum of Art’s top priority is the safety of our community, visitors, artists, and staff members.

Visiting the Museum: Masks are required for all visitors over the age of two. We ask that our visitors take their individual health and the health of other guests seriously by complying.

Attending Talks and Lectures: In consultation with medical and public health experts, the High is implementing a mandatory vaccine and mask policy for talks and lectures. Audience members will be asked to show proof of vaccination, and masks are required. Audience members who are not vaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within seventy-two hours of the talk’s start time or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the talk’s start time.

Proof of vaccination (or negative test result) must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination (or test). Audience members can show proof of vaccination by presenting a physical vaccination card, a photo of a physical card, or a digital confirmation of vaccination.  A free resource in the Atlanta for vaccinations or COVID-19 testing is Viral Solutions.

Additional Operational Details:

The campus has replaced all HVAC units with HVAC ionization systems, which are proven to reduce the COVID-19 virus.

  • HVAC ionization is more effective than other air-cleaning methods, including UV filtration, which can create ozone.
  • HVAC ionization helps kill other types of viruses, such as the flu, and air pollutants.

We also will continue to offer hand-sanitation stations at elevators throughout our parking garage and in the Museum.

The High Museum has approximately 312,000 square feet of space for visitors to spread out and enjoy seven extraordinary collecting areas and special exhibitions.
