Covid-19 Operations

Personal Protective Equipment and Hygiene 
> All staff and visitors are required to wear face coverings that cover both mouth and nose upon arrival to the Museum and throughout their visit. 

> Disposable masks are available for free to anyone who needs one.

> Hand sanitizer is available for guests at multiple points around the Museum.

Employee and Visitor Health 
> All employees complete a health screening prior to starting their shift. 

> Employees who are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 or believe they have been in contact with someone who may have been exposed are required to work for home for ten days. 

> Potential visitors who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or believe to have been in contact with someone who may have been exposed should not plan a visit to the Museum.

Physical Distancing

Safety Protocols 
> The Cayuga Museum and Case Research Laboratory are not climate controlled (though both do have active heating for spring and winter months). In summer months, fans will be placed in galleries to ensure consistent air flow, but the galleries will be hot. For the safety of visitors and staff, if indoor temperatures are expected to exceed 90° Fahrenheit the Museum will close to the public for that day.

> Door handles and all high-touch surfaces are sanitized regularly, and the entire Museum is deep cleaned prior to opening each day.

Thank you so much for your understanding! We look forward to seeing you soon!
