COVID-19 policies updated 3/1/2022
CML has continued to work hard to ensure that our exhibit experiences are as clean and safe as possible. With best practice COVID-19 protocols still in place, we are welcoming guests with these important changes effective March 3, 2022:
- Face coverings (masks, gaiters, or shields) will be recommended but not required for all indoor spaces at the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry.
- All CML staff will continue to wear face coverings when interacting with the public to lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission, especially to unvaccinated young children.
- Frequent handwashing or sanitizing is encouraged throughout the building.
- CML strongly encourages masking at all floor programs when children are in close proximity to each other. Masks will be available for all children in attendance.
- Harassment of any visitor or staff member for either wearing, or not wearing, a face covering will not be tolerated. Visitors who behave in an aggressive or harassing manner will be asked to leave the premises. No refunds will be offered.
- This policy change is based on guidance from the CDC that places Charleston County, SC in the ‘medium’ range for risk of COVID-19 transmission and hospitalization needs. Should the range change, CML will consider a mask-required status.
- CML continues to use nontoxic, hospital-grade cleaner to frequently clean all spaces. We also employ UV light sanitizing wands and sanitizing air filtering systems. Health, safety, and prevention of communicable disease remains a priority.
- We are a private, nonprofit organization and reserve the right to alter policies to best serve our constituents.
