Guests will be admitted by times and no more than 30% of our capacity will be inside the AQ at any one time. In accordance with the Covid-19 protocols.
Aquatarium appreciate guests’ patience with the facility as they adapt to the ways of operating in these uncertain times.
We ask that guests will recognize and adhere to the Lanark Leeds & Grenville Health unit’s guidelines and remain 6’ away from other guests that are not a part of their immediate party and wear a mask at all times while inside the facility.
The Aquatarium remains cognizant of everyone’s safety and are doing our very best to ensure Covid-19 safe protocols are being followed by offering timed visits, size limits, floor markings, hand sanitizing stations at all exhibits, extra sanitation staff on top of our regular cleaners and AQ Ambassadors monitoring each floor enforcing social distancing.
Social distancing will be recognized as well as guests and staff will be required to wear a mask while inside the Aquatarium facility. Curious to know more about mask protocol? We follow these guidelines:…/covid-19/face-coverings-masks/
