HEALTH & SAFETY
COVID-19 Policy Updates
Per gudiance from The Tompkins County Health Department, The History Center in Tompkins County stopped longer requiring masks, in February 2023.
Visitors may still request staff wear a mask during interactions in our Exhibit Hall or Research Library.
Masks continue to be a highly effective tool in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne, communicable diseases. We encourage our visitors to make a choice to wear a mask based on individual preference informed by level of personal risk.
Private visits with masked and vaccinated staff will continue to be available at no cost (although donations are appreciated) for any visitors concerned about covid-19 exposure. Private visits must be scheduled in advance and confirmed with our staff at The History Center - please reach out to us at email@example.com for more information. Once your group is checked in, Exhibit Hall doors will be shut and the space will be solely for your group to explore for one hour.
The History Center in Tompkins County will continue to monitor both state guidance and recommendations from the Tompkins County Health Department and will evaluate and update policies as needed.
Any questions about The History Center's health and safety policies may be directed to Ben Sandberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We do not have a parking lot associated with our building, however visitors with mobility aids, physical and/or movement impairment are encouraged to contact us at email@example.com in advance, and when possible they may use one of two staff parking spaces by the back entrance of our building. These spaces may not be used without advance communication.
