Closed by COVID-19?
A Practice Guide for managers of heritage collection that are closed at short notice because of an epidemic or pandemic
As you’ll be aware, many collecting organisations have closed to the public because of COVID-19, and most (if not all) personnel are working from home. The collection stores face extended closure, and there is a new risk to consider when people aren’t around on the same regular basis that applied until a week or so ago.
To guide and support our members and small organisations facing this new future, we have prepared a guide for advising how to ensure that a collection is not neglected despite the less-frequent attention that it receives during this period.
