Recent updates to Good Practice Guidelines on Reopening Museums 7 Oct 2020

NMDC has made changes to its Good Practice Guidelines on Reopening Museums in the light of recent Government announcements. Since late September, these include changed guidance on working from home, explanation of how the ‘rule of six’ applies to museum visits, compulsory face coverings for some hospitality staff, changed requirements for dine-in food establishments and table service and new requirements to display the NHS Test & Trace QR code. A note of recent changes, and the relevant page number in the Good Practice document can be found at the bottom of this page. NMDC will continue to update guidance as the situation evolves. NMDC

Also: There are additional measures in specific areas of the country where infection is rising. The BBC has created an interactive guide by postcode and region, outlining advice to the public at a more granular level. Although general advice to museums has not changed in these areas, in some cases, for example in Wales in late September, some museums have taken a decision to temporarily close again in the light of local restrictions.
