The Clark temporarily closes doors starting March 14…further announcement on April 1.
|THIS LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE CLARK:
“As we continue to assess the current conditions surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, we have made the decision to temporarily close our galleries and exhibitions to the public effective tomorrow, March 14.
The health of our entire community is of paramount importance and we feel that it is our civic responsibility to move swiftly to support public health initiatives to stem the spread of this disease. While we have been proactive in implementing numerous preventive measures as advised by federal, state, and local officials, we now feel that the most responsible action is to temporarily pause our normal operations.
Although there have been no confirmed cases of coronavirus connected to the museum, we will use this hiatus period to continue our rigorous cleaning protocols and will assess all building systems to ensure peak effectiveness in maintaining a safe and healthy environment.
We will continue to monitor developments and will make a further announcement on April 1 regarding the duration of the closure. In the meantime, our beautiful campus and walking trails remain open and we hope you will find some pleasure in enjoying nature, fresh air, and the first signs of spring.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Clark soon!”
