As reports continue to develop surrounding the spread of COVID-19 (the disease caused by the new Coronavirus), we want to update you on Discovery World operations and preparations.
First and foremost, health and safety are our top priorities. We are committed to keeping our guests, volunteers, interns, and partners as informed and prepared as possible.
Our museum employs a robust cleaning program that includes properly disinfecting high touch-point surfaces like door handles, faucets, elevator buttons, and handrails. We’ve also added new hand sanitizer stations throughout the museum and information about proper handwashing techniques.
At this point, the museum is staying open and we have not canceled any programs. Please know that the safety of our guests is our top priority, and as we continue to monitor the situation, we will inform you of any changes.
If you’re not feeling well, please stay home, and come back to Discovery World another day. If you are feeling well, wash your hands, cough into a tissue and throw it away, wash your hands some more, and avoid touching your face.
Any updates on possible closures and cancellations can also be found on our website at www.discoveryworld.org.
