Cleanliness Guidelines

Masks are not required for museum visitors, but are available for optional use. 

Multiple sanitizing stations are located at several points in the building with dispensers providing sanitizing gel.

Our 40-acre campus houses 185,000 square feet of public exhibition space. The building’s occupancy capacity for total people is 18,000 people. We have five public restroom spaces and separate office restroom spaces.

The Center has taken its responsibility for public safety to heart and has  rigorous cleaning protocols. We provide access to sanitary materials for the public. A summary of those changes and protocols is as follows: 

We are adhering to the CDC protocols for staff and visitors. We have posted those guidelines at all entrances and distribute the link to ALL staff every day as part of briefings. 

Entrances & Exits are wiped with sanitizing spray frequently, especially during peak visitor periods. We have established one door as exclusively entrance and a second door exclusively as exit.  

Counters are wiped continually by attending staff. Guest credit card keypads with sanitizer are placed adjacent to them.  Floor markers establish social distancing for those waiting in line. 

Bathrooms are cleaned  during work hours, and deep-cleaned in the evenings after the building is closed to the public. Sanitizer dispensers have been installed in bathrooms. 

There stations within the building containing gloves, and sanitizing wipes. We also have additional stations in reserve should we need to add them to areas within the building.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum has been engaged in a proactive approach to ensure staff safety. This includes a constant re-enforcement via signage and emails of CDC guidelines.

The Center is blessed with abundant space, so no desks are closer than 6’ to each other (unless separated by a wall) with approximately 90% of desks separated from each other by walls.  

The Center has posted signage in all public places utilizing language from the CDC website. In addition, employees daily receive the CDC recommendations through email. Finally, a memo was distributed on the first day back for employees to reiterate CDC and Wyoming Health Dept. positions.
