COVID-19 Guidelines

The health and safety of all is our priority. Lightner Museum is working to reduce risk by requiring everyone in the Museum to wear a face covering and maintain physical distancing. We have also implemented staff health checks; established a more frequent cleaning routine that includes a building-wide cleaning schedule; incorporated enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces throughout the day; and installed hand-sanitizer stations throughout the Museum. Lightner Museum will continue to monitor and abide by federal, state, and city guidelines to inform our operations.

What we’re doing:

We have implemented increased cleaning and sanitation practices in all our spaces. Frequent touch surfaces will be disinfected regularly during the day. Public restrooms will be cleaned several times each day.

Hand sanitizer stations are conveniently located throughout the museum.

At this time the Museum is not conducting its Music Room demonstrations.

How you can help:

Face coverings are required for all visitors over the age of two. Additionally, face coverings must be worn for the duration of your visit. CDC guidelines advise that face coverings should:

  • Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nose
  • Fit snugly against the sides of the face

Maintain physical distancing. Visitors should stay at least six feet (about two arms’ length) from others and from groups.

Wash hands and use hand sanitizer regularly during your visit.

Please follow directions from Lightner Museum staff and volunteers.

Stay home if you are feeling sick. For more information about COVID-19, check the CDC website.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit to Lightner Museum. Those visiting Lightner Museum do so at their own risk of such exposure.
