Masks in museums part of the UK government strategy to stem COVID resurgence

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

Having frozen plans to reopen a raft of indoor venues which have remained closed since March, Boris Johnson has also announced that many sites already welcoming visitors will need to further tighten safety measures as COVID cases begin to rise again in Britain.

While all cultural venues that have reopened to the public in recent days and weeks have taken precautions to prioritize safety, they will be required by law to ensure everyone admitted wears a face covering as of Saturday 8th August.

How long this will be the case is unknown, as is the potential impact – whether positive or negative – it could have on visitor numbers.

The change applies to “museums, galleries, aquariums, indoor zoos or visitor farms, or other indoor tourists, heritage or cultural sites” in England, with the devolved governments in the UK setting their own COVID agendas.
