The Reading Public Museum wants to assure you that the health and safety of our community is a top priority. As concern regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the United States and our region is increasing, please know that we are closely following official government recommendations and the advice of the Center for Disease Control. Our facilities team has been taking extra precautions and wiping down doors, doorknobs, faucets, light switches, and various surfaces several times a day. The Museum also features hand-sanitizing stations, which are strategically placed throughout our buildings. 

We are also committed to taking care of the team of staff and volunteers who make your visits to The Museum possible every day. We are communicating measures to prevent getting sick—avoid touching your face (especially eyes, nose, and mouth) and persistent hand washing for a minimum of 20 seconds—to all who enter our facilities. Posters with tips have been placed in common areas to remind everyone of these important guidelines. We have also stressed that if any member of the team becomes ill, they need to stay at home. At this time, we are taking a serious look at all upcoming programming. Should we decide to cancel or postpone any scheduled events, we will do our best to communicate this message to you in a timely manner. Please also check our website for the latest information. 

Again, we are keeping in touch with local officials and staying on top of the most current information available. We will certainly follow any mandates put in place and do our best to help limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Thank you for your continued support of the Reading Public Museum.
