The by-donation museum is limiting visitors to eight at a time and encouraging people to wear a mask, though it’s not required, according to the museum’s website.

“If the gallery is at capacity, staff will ask you to wait outside until it is safe for you to enter. Once inside, please practise physical distancing and stay two metres (six feet) apart,” the website states.

The museum’s current exhibition, Dissonance, features photographs by Iranian artist Gohar Dashti which “explore notions of home and sanctuary,” according to a press release.

Public libraries across the North Shore reopened to the public today.

When it comes to the reopening of other public programs and facilities, the District of West Vancouver has already jump-started some summer camp programs and limited outdoor health and fitness programs, according to Donna Powers, district spokeswoman.

“If all goes well in the coming weeks, the next phase will include limited reopening of facilities like the community centre, under new protocols, including reduced class sizes and operating hours,” stated Powers, in an emailed response. “West Vancouver also co-ordinates resumption of services with other municipalities. Residents are encouraged to get updates on recreation programs and facilities at westvancouverrec.ca.”
