How has Hampton Roads Naval Museum prepared for visitors?
As an official Department of the Navy museum, HRNM has followed all Department of Defense regulations pertaining to COVID-19 and personal safety. HRNM has worked hard to create a welcoming and enjoyable experience for our visitors.
We have installed regularly spaced hand sanitation stations throughout the museum. We have incorporated signage to remind our guests we are all working together to maintain social distancing. We will have staff and volunteers on site to offer assistance and answer questions.
Staff and volunteers will be required to follow current DoD face covering requirements. HRNM staff will sanitize all frequently touched surfaces on an hourly basis and conduct spot cleaning as needed throughout the day.
