Cummer Museum of Arts and Garden open and ready

One of the safest venues to visit in Jacksonville, Florida (because visitors are not permitted to touch any of the displays, and there is usually more than 6 feet distance between persons) is the Cummer Museum of Arts & Garden.  My readers and I do appreciate your concern over your patrons and employees and for that we say, “Thank You”.  We can feel safe when we come to the Cummer.

Below is a letter that was sent to members of the museum.

Dear Cummer Museum members,

The Museum has been closely monitoring COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) both globally and locally, and we are following the recommendations by government and public health agencies.

To protect our visitors and team members, the Museum has implemented extra precautions regarding sanitizing our campus including, but not limited to, bathrooms, door handles, flat surfaces and other high-traffic public areas, as well as additional training for the team on how best to prevent the spread of illness.

As always, staff, members, docents, volunteers and visitors are encouraged to be diligent about preventive hygiene.  According to public health authorities, you can help prevent the spread of illness by frequently washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom and before eating. Parents can supervise their children to ensure they wash their hands thoroughly.  Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing is recommended. If you are sick, please stay home.

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow all safety guidelines outlined by the City and State, as well as advice from the American Alliance of Museums. Thank you for your patience and support.

The Team at the Cummer Museum

Our Mission: Engaging and inspiring through the arts, gardens, and education.
