Health & Safety

ensuring a safe experience

your safety is our priority

We recognize that each of us plays a critical role in creating a safe and healthy environment. We have created the following guidelines and practices based on recommendations by the CDC, government and health officials that will help to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers.

Note that all of our COVID-19 health and safety policies listed below will continue to be in effect for the time being. Any updates or changes to our policies will be posted here.

for visitors

Entry to the Rothko Chapel remains free for all and masks are encouraged but not required. Capacity inside the Rothko Chapel and the Suzanne Deal Booth Welcome House is determined by staffing levels; however, a majority of our operating hours do not have wait times for entry.

If there are any questions or concerns around visiting within these guidelines, please contact welcomehouse@rothkochapel.org 

for staff & volunteers

Staff and volunteers will be required to wear  masks, provided by the Chapel for their safety and yours through August 28, 2022.

Staff and volunteers are here to help make sure the Chapel experience is safe for you and for others, please respect any instruction provided to you by our team.
