Utah’s new law, HB 1007, prohibits a face covering requirement in higher education and in the public education systems. The University of Utah — our parent institution — has rescinded the mask mandate on campus. As a University of Utah facility, face coverings will no longer be required at the Museum starting May 24, 2021. We will continue to require our other COVID-19 practices:
- Screening participants and staff for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the facility.
- Scheduled disinfection of high touched surfaces several times throughout the day and use of electrostatic foggers and sanitizers each evening in lab spaces.
- Scheduled hand washing times throughout the day; hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility.
- As much as possible in a hands-on summer camp program our activities have been updated for physical distancing.
