CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE:
After careful consideration, Liberty Hall Museum has decided to close the museum effective immediately from March 17 through April 30 due to the rapidly-changing situation surrounding the Novel Coronavirus, commonly referred to as COVID-19. This precautionary measure was made in response to recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings of people, and by Governor Phil Murphy’s recent mandatory school closures.
We are closely monitoring the situation via updates from the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) and the CDC to ensure we are practicing the proper precautions and protocol to help keep our community members, staff, and visitors safe and protected during this time.
We will reevaluate the situation at the end of March to determine when the museum can reopen to the public.
As a proactive precaution, we will still be undertaking additional cleaning of the buildings multiple times a day with emphasis to high traffic areas (tables, chairs, railings, door handles, and interactive exhibits.)
The safety and comfort of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority; any and all updates will be posted on our website or Facebook page.
Simple steps that you can take to prevent the spread of the common cold and flu which can also help prevent COVID-19:
-Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
-Avoid contact with people who are sick.
-Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others.
-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
-Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.
Thank you for your understanding. We are working hard to keep Liberty Hall a safe environment for all guests! We look forward to reopening as soon as possible!
