Health & Safety

We are facing unprecedented times, and COVID-19 is presenting us all with unforeseen challenges to our everyday life.

For the safety of our patrons and employees, we have decided to close CMOST effective March 17, 2020 until further notice. At this time, this closure also includes any commitments for outreach education to schools and school vacation camps that have been scheduled.

Please check back for updates and consider donating to support the museum during these challenging times. Generosity is also contagious.

The well-being of our visitors and staff is always our top priority ♥ We take great care each day to ensure the cleanliness of our space. In light of concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to share the following tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Uploaded Image: /uploads/images/little lil.jpg

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Please check back for updates on future plans.
