Covid-19 Resources

Museums across the U.S. have been, and continue to be, greatly impacted by the ongoing covid-19 pandemic and a national reckoning around race. While many have been given the opportunity to reopen with appropriate safety restrictions in place, behind the scenes day-to-day operations remain in flux, and institutional practices and policies perpetuating systemic racism are being dismantled, reimagined, and eliminated.

Here, you'll find a list of resources to aid you in your internal discussions, and workflow recommendations that can be adapted to fit your specific needs.
