We have compiled this comprehensive resource for museums and galleries planning to re-open to the public. Whilst the NSW Government has stated that museums, galleries and libraries may open as of 1 June 2020, there are still several important precautions that must be taken to ensure that staff, volunteers and visitors are COVID safe.
Under Public Health Orders, you must have a COVID-19 Safety Plan for how your business will keep your customers and workers safe. The NSW Government has provided resources and guidance for developing a COVID Safety Plan for your museum or gallery and continues to update current directives as it relates to the sector.

Our document includes links to official Government advice; developing a timeline and strategy for re-opening; precautions to make your space COVID safe; ways to support staff and volunteers; and links to useful resources.
