COVID-19 Updates

In response to changes to CDC guidelines and NYS Department of Health recommendations, LICM has implemented the following changes to our mask mandate:

  • Masks are no longer required in our outdoor exhibit space (Our Backyard).
  • Unvaccinated visitors ages 24 months and up are REQUIRED to wear masks while inside the Museum. 
  • Because children under the age of 12 are not yet eligible to receive the vaccination, we recommend that all adults wear a mask while in the Museum to model the behavior we are asking of our child guests. 
  • All visitors ages 24 months and up are REQUIRED to wear masks while inside the LICM Theater.

For answers regarding other COVID-19 updates at the Museum, see our frequently asked questions.
