Recommendations & Considerations for Re-Opening Museums - Expanded Edition

Posted by Amber Hanover on June 23rd, 2020

The intention of this guide is to provide cultural and heritage organizations with some points of consideration when contemplating the task of re-opening after the forced COVID-19 closure. There are four main steps that are looked at: Isolation, Staff Re-Entry, Re-Opening to the Public, and Continuous Monitoring. Each of these steps has its own considerations. This guide is not all-inclusive, each institution that has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic should approach this guide as suggestions, adapt it to what your organization has and needs. This is to give you a starting point when tackling the complex issue of re-opening.

You can view a presentation given as a part of a Zoom Community Chat on June 24, 2020 by Sarah Durham, Musuems Advisor on YouTube here.
