The Courtenay and District Museum team have re-opened the museum doors with public and museum team safety in mind. First things first, we created a safety plan based upon provincial requirements. Working with this information and with information from our colleagues and associations, the museum team created safety protocols for distancing, occupancy limits and sanitizing and implemented these protocols in gallery areas. We also cleaned spaces, moved exhibits and collections, overhauled the gift shop and worked with contractors and city staff to redo floors and surfaces.

This is what’s new at our museum:

  • An occupancy limit of ten at a time.
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available on entrance and throughout the building.
  • Masks are suggested and available.
  • Archival services are limited at this time but inquiries by phone are welcome.

Our thanks go out to the City of Courtenay and all funders and donors for continuing to support the museum through this transition and into this re-opening phase.
