Boston art museums, New England aquarium bring back face mask requirements – CBS Boston


BOSTON (CBS) – Boston’s top art museums are reinstating face mask requirements starting Saturday, in line with the latest COVID guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.

The Museum of Fine Arts will require the wearing of masks to visitors and staff both inside and outside the museum, regardless of the vaccination status.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) will require masks for visitors when they are inside the museums.

“All visitors and staff have a right to a safe and respectful experience, and we appreciate your adherence to this policy,” the Gardner tweeted.

The New England Aquarium also announced Thursday that masks will be mandatory starting Saturday.

Suffolk County is considered by the CDC to have “substantial” COVID transmission. The agency even recommends that people who are fully vaccinated wear face masks in indoor public spaces in areas of high or high transmission.
