The Woodlands Children’s Museum has been proactive in addressing the concerns that our families may have regarding the monitoring of COVID-19 (corona-virus) and its potential spread to the United States by implementing EXTRA time to disinfect classrooms and common areas more often than the daily number of times, presently in place, to keep our museum clean.
All acrylic pieces in the Light Bright wall, fruits, vegetables, dishes and LEGO® pieces are changed out daily and, what are removed from the exhibit, are then sanitized and disinfected to replace the next day’s group. Our concerns have been addressed with the cleaning company that assists the museum in the evening with special attention being made to doors entering and exiting the building, doors to the bathrooms, as well as the countertops and toilet areas, in particular.
Costumes are switched out and the ones that are removed from the area are washed and prepared to replace the next day’s items for play.
Understanding that the corona-virus is a very contagious virus, The Woodlands Children’s Museum is asking assistance from our visitors to take extra caution regarding standard personal best practices including:
-Washing your hands and the hands of your child (children) with soap and water often during the day or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands and sharing these practices with children.
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
-Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in the trash and sharing these practices with children.
At home, please clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. This is a great opportunity to engage children in the processes and share with them “why” you are taking these precautions.
Children’s health, safety and love for play is our priority at The Woodlands Children’s Museum. Presently, we encourage all visitors to be cautious, but not alarmed or scared, as we continue to follow the information shared by the State of Texas, Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the United States Center for Disease Control.
