A Note to our Visitors

The safety and well-being of our staff, visitors, and volunteers are always our highest priorities. As part of our ongoing commitment to provide a healthy and safe environment for all visitors we are continually monitoring the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to being responsive, heeding guidance on prevention measures from the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is currently open during regular business hours. We are taking extra precautionary measures to disinfect our space throughout each day, as well as providing extra hand sanitizer. Public areas are already cleaned daily, but we are increasing our efforts at cleaning high-touch areas such as the Kids Corner.

What You Can Do: 

Though we would love to see you at the Museum, if you are sick, please stay home and avoid close contact with others, as recommended by the CDC.  

Other recommendations include:  

  • Wash your hands. Do so often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  
  • If the opportunity for hand washing is not available, use hand sanitizers.  
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Hold a tissue over your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw that tissue away and wash your hands.  
  • If possible, avoid close contact with others (handshakes, hugs, etc.)
