Reopening and Operating during COVID-19
With funding support from Travel Alberta, the AMA is working to
produce physical and digital resources to support organizations in
the museum and heritage sector to reopen and operate safely during
the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After museums were allowed to reopen in Stage 1 of Alberta's
Relaunch Strategy, the AMA published the advisory document, Guidance
for Reopening Museums, to help clarify museum-specific
considerations and requirements to reopen safely.
We are working to expand on and develop this document with
additional information and resources about reopening and operating
during a public health crisis. The updated guidance will be
available digitally on our website.
