COVID-19 Response for Museums

In response to Premier Pallister's media release regarding the province's plan to allow museums and some other businesses to open as of May 4, we have put together a message with tips, tricks and suggestions that we hope our members will find useful as they navigate their way through this particular storm.

Take care and stay safe.
