COVID-19 has changed everyone’s world, including MOCAD’s. Here you will find information on the protocols we have implemented, including safety measures and visitor guidelines. As the pandemic progresses, our staff are regularly reviewing and adjusting our operations based on evolving guidance from government health organizations and scientists.
The health and safety of our visitors and staff continue to be our top priority.
Please note that Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead is currently closed while we prepare for our new exhibition.
MOCAD has implemented increased cleaning and disinfecting procedures, added hand sanitizing stations, and limited the number of touchable surfaces.
Staff members have undergone training in proper cleaning and disinfecting protocols, participate in daily screening, and always wear a mask when inside of the Museum. Staff are also working on site on a limited basis to reduce the risk of exposure.
Finally, MOCAD has paused in-person events, though we look forward to hosting them in the future! Visit our Upcoming Events page for information on virtual programming.
At this time, all visitors to MOCAD are asked to:
- Self screen prior to visiting MOCAD. Click here to review the CDC’s guidance on COVID-19 symptoms.
- Stay home if you or a member of your household are not feeling well, or if you think you may have been exposed to someone ill with COVID-19.
- Complete a brief screening and contact tracing survey while checking in at the front desk.
- Consider visiting at times that may be lower traffic, such as earlier in the day.
- Wear masks inside the Museum. Visitors ages 3 and under are not required to wear a mask but should be carried or in a stroller.
- Use hand sanitizer when entering the building.
- Practice physical distancing – allow at least 6 feet of space between you and another person (unless the other person is a member of your household).
- Be kind to our staff and each other. Respect the directions of the staff. We are here to help and to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
