Safety Guidelines and Requirements

As we reopen to the public, operations will be adjusted to provide a safer environment for the staff, volunteers, and our guests as we strive to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Before your visit, please read through the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission safety guidelines:

Face Mask Required

All visitors, volunteers, and staff must wear a face mask when entering and while visiting our sites or when near others on the grounds. Based on guidelines from the CDC, face masks have been shown to effectively prevent the spread of COVID-19, so for our safety and that of our visitors, anyone not willing to wear masks will not be admitted.

 Social Distancing Required

To further prevent the spread of COVID-19, all visitors, volunteers, and staff must practice social distancing by remaining 6 feet away from anyone not in your household.  Wearing a face mask is not a substitute for social distancing.

Limiting Capacity

To ensure social distancing and keep visitors and our staff safe, we are reducing the capacity of visitors at our sites and museums in accordance with Department of Health guidelines.

Hand Hygiene

Visitors must wash or sanitize their hands with hand sanitizer as they begin their visit at the site’s visitor center and/or house museum.  They should do so again before leaving.  Hand sanitizer will be available at all of our facilities.

Visit Later If You Have Symptoms

Anyone who is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (including fever, cough, chills, sore throat, fatigue, shortness of breath or loss of taste) should refrain from visiting until they are symptom-free.  We will welcome you back at that time.

 Cleaning and Disinfecting

“High touch” surfaces such as door handles, push plates, railings, switches, countertops, and benches will be disinfected frequently throughout the day.  Restrooms will be cleaned and disinfected several times throughout the day depending on visitation levels.

Additional Information

The following information is subject to change depending on COVID-19 mitigation regulations. Please contact us for more details on our current capacity.
