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.
Health & Safety Toolkits
The Health & Safety Toolkits are now available to
order through the AMA Bookstore. Ordering will remain open
while supplies last.
Health & Safety Toolkits will provide museums and heritage
institutions with a variety of health and safety supports. The
toolkits include physical wayfinding signage and floor stickers to
direct visitors and encourage physical distancing, along with free
access to digital resources.

Valued at approximately $250, these toolkits will be available
for only the cost of shipping and handling. Organizations may
request up to three toolkits, and orders will be filled based on
overall supply and demand. An organization does not need to be an
AMA member to order a toolkit. You will receive an email
notification confirming the contents of your order prior to it
Under the Advisory section, the AMA maintains an FAQ and
Resources Guide for the COVID-19 pandemic. This section is
updated as new information and resources become available.
