COVID-19 Response

As we are learning more about the COVID-19 outbreak we wanted to ensure our members have access to information and resources to help make the most prudent decisions for their organizations and communities.

  • We encourage all museums to follow the recommendations being given by the Utah Coronavirus Task Force (details are being continually updated here) which are intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 while the state works to put additional resources in place. We also encourage you to find ways to lessen the impact of this situation on the lives of your employees.
  • The American Alliance of Museum has provided additional resources and guidance for the sector to prepare internally and externally for outbreaks in their communities. When developing contingency plans in keeping with federal and state guidelines, we encourage you to reacquaint yourself with your museum’s pre-existing policies and procedures in order to identify areas of potential liability that may need to be addressed. 
  • If you have events that are being canceled please remember to adjust your event listing on nowplayingutah in addition please track any financial losses incurred due to changes caused by COVID-19. This data will be useful as we advocate for additional emergency funding for the cultural sector.  
  • The Utah Cultural Alliance has reached out to all of federal elected and state leadership to request they set aside funding for arts and humanities nonprofits who are affected. Please consider signing their petition to add your voice.
