LETTER TO THE EDITOR
I hope this finds you healthy and safe.
The more infectious Delta variant of COVID-19 has led to a steep
rise in cases across the country.
All counties in northwest Ohio now have “moderate or higher”
spread, per designations from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), and Lucas and Wood counties have
The CDC has updated their guidance, and they now recommend that
fully vaccinated Americans wear masks indoors in an area of
substantial or high coronavirus transmission.
Accordingly, effective August 11, all visitors, staff, and
contractors will be required to wear face coverings when inside
TMA buildings. These
changes are meant to create a safe and enjoyable museum visit
during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, prioritizing the health
of staff and visitors.
Our staff has worked diligently to ensure that Museum operations
are handled in a manner consistent with best-practice standards
in the environmental health and safety field and that the Museum
follows guidelines set forth by state and federal agencies. Our
visitors and staff have shown great respect for each other and
the procedures we currently have in place.
We plan to continue welcoming people safely and successfully to
our galleries and the broader TMA campus. For additional
information about visiting TMA, go to https://www.toledomuseum.org/visit/overview.
In addition, Visitor Experience staff may be reached by phone at
(419) 255-8000 ext. 7448.
Thank you for your continued support and patience. We look
forward to seeing you all soon in our already safe Museum, made
safer by our new face-covering guidance. We have exciting
things happening at the Museum, from new acquisitions to our
exhibition Supernatural America and reinstalled galleries. We
cannot wait to welcome you.
Adam Levine, Director
Toledo Museum of Art
