"Over the past few months, we have been working to create new operating procedures to keep our visitors and staff safe. We established these procedures through discussions with key staff and medical professionals in partnership with consultant firm, ECRI, and following recommendations from federal, state, and city health officials. We have made these changes to our operations to prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff," the museum said.
