    AS OF JUNE 3RD, 2020, THE ROSSLAND MUSEUM & DISCOVERY CENTRE HAS REOPENED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. The Government of BC announced museums can reopen as of mid-May as part of the Province’s Restart Plan. Worksafe BC published new guidelines for the sector to help employers ensure that sites are safe for returning employees and volunteers. Protocols for the Arts and Cultural facilities can be found here and protocols for offices can be found here. The BC Museums Association (BCMA) also developed guidelines for BC museums. This plan has been developed with resources and guidelines from Worksafe BC, BC Centre for Disease Control (CDC), the BCMA, Destination BC, and similar industry resources and understanding and knowledge of the existing facilities and visitors. The focus of the plan is on developing protocols that address elimination by focusing on physical distancing and where this is challenging, implementing engineering controls. We have focused on key risks for the museum which represent the categories within this plan. This plan will be reviewed as new information from the BC CDC/Interior Health Authority becomes available and assessed every two weeks minimum to adjust for on-site requirements. IMPORTANT NOTES: If you are feeling ill, do not enter the museum Follow specific guidance posted throughout the facility for restrictions in the visitors centre, gift shop, washrooms, etc. Limit of 40 people in the museum Maintain physical distancing 2 metres/6 feet Sanitize hands upon entry & when you leave In case of contact tracing needs, a name & phone number will be required for each party/person Masks are encouraged for indoor access
