In accordance with the local gov’s efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, entry to both ART021 and West Bund ART & Design is permitted only if you can produce a negative nucleic acid test taken within the last 48 hours upon arrival. News comes from the respective official WeChat accounts of the two respective event organizers.
This is in addition to valid ID, health codes, registry, normal temperature, and tickets.
Well, that’s an extra hassle for sure. But should make for a thinner crowd to enjoy the exhibition(s) with if you’ve got your negative test sorted out.
As of this writing, a negative nucleic acid test is not required for entry into Design Miami.
Here is a list of places where you can get COVID tests.
