We Care About Your Health
(Updated: March 23, 2020)
In efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in following recommendations of Governor Northam, the Chrysler Museum of Art will be closed to the public effective Saturday, March 14, 2020, with a tentative reopening on April 24, 2020. The closure includes the Perry Glass Studio and the cancellation of all public programs, tours, classes, and events through the end of the month.
Our facilities will remain secure and staffed by our outstanding security team. Our staff’s safety is a top priority and we will continue to seek actionable ways to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 in our workspaces. Employees are working remotely and our teams have contingency work plans in place for the next several weeks. We will use this time to thoroughly disinfect and clean our facilities. We look forward to a strong reopening and welcoming visitors to a safe and healthy environment.
The situation is evolving rapidly, therefore we will continue to assess the situation and heed guidance set forth by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Updates regarding our closure and reopening will be available here and I encourage you to follow our social channels (@chryslermuseum). While we are closed, we will continue to share the Museum to you through our digital channels, as our mission remains to bring art and people together.
We appreciate the community’s support as we take an abundance of caution to protect our staff and visitors.
For the safety of everyone in our community, we ask that you please:
- Stay home and avoid close contact with others if you or a member of your household are sick or feeling unwell.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash and immediately wash your hands.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
