Out of an abundance of caution to manage the risks posed by COVID-19, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation museums joins museums throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia in closing for a two-week period.
The well-being of our visitors, employees and volunteers remains our highest priority.
Given public health agencies’ reporting of presumptive positive cases in the state and region, and to limit risk of transmission, proactive steps have been taken at the museum.
In an effort to prevent and control the potential spread of coronavirus in large public gatherings, and following Governor Northam’s declaration of a state of emergency in Virginia on Thursday, March 12, several major events and programs have been cancelled. Any decision to reschedule these programs and events will be announced at a later date.
Events and programs impacted:
- Military Through the Ages, March 21-22 at Jamestown Settlement
- Revolution! Lecture by Dr. Kacy Tillman, March 26 at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown
- Community Briefings, March 25, March 26, and March 31 at Jamestown Settlement
- “Department of the Geographer School of Instruction” Symposium, March 28-29 at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown
- “The Tempest,” April 7-11 at Jamestown Settlement
Proactive efforts have been made to disinfect high-touch areas including surfaces, doorknobs and stairwells, in the exhibition galleries and outdoor living-history areas. Hand-sanitizing stations are available in select areas of the museums to supplement handwashing.
The Foundation is carefully and continually reviewing conditions to ensure the health and safety of museum visitors and employees as well as decisions about scheduled programs and events, following guidance of the Virginia Governor’s Office, National Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the Virginia Health Department and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management. Staff are working in concert with emergency managers from James City County, the City of Williamsburg, other state agencies and tourism partners.
