COVID-19: What We’re Doing to Keep You Safe
To protect our guests and staff, the Oklahoma Historical Society recommends that visitors who have not been fully vaccinated wear masks.
The Oklahoma History Center follows appropriate CDC and Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines on public safety, cleaning practices, and cleaning products. We ask that you maintain social distancing, use appropriate handwashing techniques, and do not enter the Oklahoma History Center if you have COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms, have a fever, or are otherwise feeling sick or unwell.
We have implemented procedures to keep visitors, staff, and volunteers as safe as possible. Restrooms are cleaned and sanitized twice per day, and public counters, door handles, water fountains, elevator buttons, handrails, and light switches are sanitized daily. Hand-sanitizing stations are located throughout the building. If you plan to visit the Research Center, please view our research procedures.
