The museums and libraries across Armenia are set to reopen with measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The decision that came as part of a gradual loosening of the state of emergency regime in the country was announced on Tuesday by Commandant Tigran Avinyan.
The facilities will reopen their doors to the public under certain conditions in compliance with the government-advised social distancing guideline and other preventive measures. All staff, volunteers, and visitors will be required to wear a mask while in the building and have temperature check before entering. Hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the buildings. There will also be a designated path through the museum galleries to ensure social distancing.
Up to 10 people can be present in the space of every 20 sq. meters at the same time. The group tours are advised to make by appointment and exclusively with the accompany of the guide.
