Sensorio Paso Robles adds additional nights
 Sensorio Paso Robles has added Thursday nights for the stunning outdoor art exhibition of Bruce
Munro: Field of Light. Adding Thursdays to the regular Friday and Saturday nights for the repeatedly sold-out exhibit will allow visitors an extra night each week to admire the lauded light exhibit by interna- tionally acclaimed Australian light artist Bruce Munro. After Septem- ber, the exhibit will also be open Sunday nights through January 3, 2021.
In accordance with local public health requirements to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, Sensorio is implementing new rules through- out the 15-acre outdoor site.
“With the Governor’s an- nouncement May 12 allowing activities including outdoor museums and galleries, we were granted permission by the Public Health Director of San Luis Obispo County to re-open,” says Executive Director Tracy Strann.
“We are implementing every safety precaution in order to offer
a safe environment for our visitors, including timed ticket entry, a one- way path through the exhibition, limited group size (six maximum), monitored and enforced social dis- tancing, mask coverings, and other safety measures to guard every- one’s health. During these deeply unsettling times, we know there are many looking forward to visiting this tranquil outdoor exhibition to experience Bruce Munro’s extraor- dinary vision.”
Sensorio will continue to offer
guests food and beverage via a mo- bile kitchen, food truck, and bever- age kiosks, with updated seating arrangements that conform to all safety and health guidelines. Social distancing throughout the exhibit will be enforced. Sensorio requires masks for all staff members, plus gloves for all food and beverage employees.
To further protect its guests and staff, non-contact thermom- eters will be utilized for each guest upon entry, and non-contact hand sanitation stations will be provided throughout the entire site. All rest- rooms and surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected every 30 minutes. Prior to admittance, every ticket
buyer will be required to read and sign upon entrance a document confirming they currently have no
COVID-19 symptoms and have not knowingly come into contact with anyone that has symptoms of COVID-19 or any flu-like virus, in the past 14 days.
