Mask Policy

Admittance to the Autry requires wearing a face mask (or, in special instances, a face shield with drape) at all times by all people over age 2. This includes people who are partially or fully vaccinated. There are no exceptions or exemptions (including medical exemptions) to this policy. If you are unable to comply with this policy at this time—for whatever reason—we look forward to welcoming you when you are able to wear a mask in the future, or when the pandemic has been officially declared "over." Masks must be worn over both nose and mouth at all times. Masks must not include any exhalation valves and/or vents or other such devices. Individuals who have been instructed not to wear a face mask by their medical provider must wear a face shield with a drape on the bottom edge. A drape that is form fitting under the chin is preferred. If your mask is deemed by the Autry, at its sole discretion, to be insufficient, you will be provided with a mask to wear pursuant to this policy and that meets our guidelines. Failure to abide by any part of this policy at any time will result in immediate expulsion from the Autry premises. There are no exceptions or exemptions.

Code of Conduct

We look forward to your visit. As you plan your day, we remind you that the Autry will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, including, but not limited to, yelling, violence, intimidation, threats, harassment, aggression, swearing, damage, abuse, or sexual harassment. Individuals who are aggressive toward staff or other visitors will be expelled from the Autry and escorted off the property.


In the interest of your personal safety and community health, please observe all the precautions listed above. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit to the Autry. Those visiting the Autry do so at their own risk of such exposure.
