CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Museum of Art has announced its updated policy regarding COVID-19 Safety Protocols as a response to state and local authorities and the Center of Diseases (CDC) policy to COVID-19. The policy will be effective starting on June 2nd, 2021.

In their statement, the museum will stop advance general admission and temperature screenings though it is still recommended for the visitors to wear face coverings inside the building. In addition, masks will no longer be a mandatory policy in entering the museum for those who have been fully vaccinated.

The museum's south door will be reopened as a visitor entry and exit point throughout the summer. The Plexiglas barriers will be retained in the north lobby, at the information desks, in the store, and the Provenance Cafe.

The museum has updated its hours of operation to Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum will also adjust Provenance Cafe's operating hours to Tuesday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in order to better serve guests. The cafe will add a variant of hot meals and beverages as visitors increase.

The museum is still considering in-person programs that will be announced later in the future, depending on the type and size of the event and health protocols.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is still monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will adjust its policies depending on directions or information from the state, local officials, and the CDC.
