BOZAR received the Brussels Health Safety Label from visit.brussels in recognition of the many measures that it has introduced in order to guarantee safe and comfortable visitor access.
In order to enable the sector to reopen as safely as possible, the Brussels-Capital Region and visit.brussels launch a health safety label, created in partnership with the global certification company SOCOTEC. It has the simple aim of providing national and international visitors with reassurance around the quality and safety of Brussels’ tourist infrastructure.
As a big cultural institution in Brussels, BOZAR has applied all the required health measures ever since the beginning of the confinement, to ensure the proper reopening of premises in the future. As a result of these measures, we were able to welcome back the public from 19 May 2020.
The principal measures that have been implemented include providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer; mandatory wearing of face masks; regular disinfection of lavatories and sensitive surfaces such as door handles; online ticket reservations; equipping ticket counters with Plexiglas separators and restricting the number of people; designating time slots for exhibition visits, establishing clear and prominent signs to ensure that social distancing is maintained; marking routes; and regularly updating the website with advice and instructions.
Ensuring public safety and access to culture in these troubled times is our priority. By obtaining the Brussels Health Safety Label, we are able to encourage the public to visit places dedicated to culture – a sector that has been greatly affected by the COVID crisis – and to reinforce the idea that the artistic and cultural experience is a pillar of human well-being and harmony
