What COVID protocols are in place at Ironworks?

Open tab

We continue to limit the number of guests who can enter the retail space. There is hand sanitizer available at each entrance. Our staff are all fully vaccinated and masked at all times. We provide free masks for any visitors who do not have one with them. Our sampling service is restricted to seated customers only at the moment. We are doing regular cleaning of high touch surfaces. Plus we are situated in a building that is 120 years old, with lots of big open doors and windows, sitting beside the Atlantic Ocean, which means that we have perfect and constant air circulation!

In accordance with NS Public Health COVID regulations, we require all our guests who are taking our tours and guided tasting events to provide proof of full vaccination.
