We will temporarily close after our Saturday afternoon session on December 5th.
This was a very difficult decision to make. After consulting with our Board of Directors we have decided that it is in the best interest of keeping people as safe as we can. That is our priority!
There were 2 factors that influenced this decision. First, is the high rate of Covid cases in our area, which continues to set records. The other factor is that 2/3 of our small number of Admissions Desk Staff have been exposed to the virus. Their exposure happened after their most recent day working at the museum. Neither staff member has been in the museum since before Thanksgiving. This leaves one person to do everything including cleaning, which is asking too much of one person.
We will continue to monitor the number of cases in our area to make a decision about reopening. We are hoping for the second week in January which will enable us to reduce the holiday exposure to our staff and visitors.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you and your families stay well.
Deb Ganley,
Executive Director
