COVID-19 Enhanced Safety Measures
While we have implemented advanced health and safety measures, we cannot guarantee any visitor will not contract Covid-19 during their visit. An inherent risk of exposure to Covid-19 exists in public spaces at this time. Museum visitors voluntarily assume all risks related to Covid-19 exposure. In an event of a reported Covid-19 exposure during their visit, the person making the reservation will be notified by the email they provided on their reservation, and that person will be responsible for notifying all members of their party.
Visitors agree to abide by these safety guidelines and all instructions posted in the museum or provided by staff during the visit. If a visitor fails to follow the guidelines and instructions, they may be denied entry or required to leave the premises.
- If you are sick (or not feeling well) please visit another time.
For the safety of all staff and visitors, anyone who is sick or has any sign of a respiratory illness should stay home.
- Face Coverings required for unvaccinated persons.
Fully vaccinated persons are not required to wear a mask or other face covering. Fully vaccinated means that it has been at least two weeks since receiving the last dose of the vaccine. All visitors aged 2 and older who are not fully vaccinated must wear a face covering or mask that covers both the nose and mouth. Visitors must provide their own face coverings.
- Entering the Museum
Visitors must check their temperature before arrival on the day of the timed ticket to confirm that they do not have a fever. If you are not feeling well, please stay home.
- Bags, backpacks and luggage are prohibited.
Only one purse or diaper bag will be permitted per visitor.
- Stay six feet apart.
For your convenience, floor markers have been installed to indicate directional flow and proper spacing of individuals and groups. Practice social distancing during your visit by staying at least six feet from anyone not in your group. Parties of no more than six will be able to social distance together. Children must stay with adults at all times. Failure to follow social distancing procedures and face covering policy will result in removal from the premises.
- Enhanced cleaning measures.
We have enacted enhanced cleanings of the museum and all high-touch areas. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building.
- Contact tracing.
We may share your name and email address with a governmental health authority, should that information be requested for a COVID-19-related reason. If a visitor reports a positive diagnosis with COVID-19 after visiting on a day near your visit, we will use your contact information to notify you. If you do not want your name or email address used for these purposes, please contact us. The Hoover Presidential Library will not disclose your email address for any other purpose without your permission.
To enhance the safety and well-being of our community, we ask that anyone testing positive for (or expressing symptoms of) COVID-19 within 5 days of their visit notify us. Other visitors will be notified of potential exposure, but the identity of the person testing positive will not be shared.
