COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is still reporting that for the general American public, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low. However, the situation continues to evolve. We are closely monitoring these developments and are proactively coordinating any future response that might be required.

In order to address the CDC’s current recommendations, our housekeeping staff is increasing their surface-cleaning procedures, and we will be providing additional hand-sanitizing stations throughout the Museum.

We continue to look to the CDC, the Fulton County Health Department, and the City of Atlanta and state leadership for guidance. We will keep you updated as new information about COVID-19 is presented.

In the meantime, below are some recommended actions from the CDC that you can take to stay well:

Stay home when you are sick.

  • If you have flu-like symptoms, please stay home and seek medical attention. Remain at home until you are fever free without the use of fever-reducing medications for at least twenty-four hours.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least twenty seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a face mask.
    • The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.

Additional information on COVID-19 can be found on the CDC’s website.
