COVID-19 Resources

Updated June 29, 2022.

To help support Ontario museums and museum workers, the OMA has compiled the following information regarding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

These resources and information are not to be taken as legal advice or a definitive answer for any particular museum, but rather as a guide for preparedness for the field. We encourage members to consult relevant policies and legislation.
