NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) – The Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass is going back to its normal hours and activities following a four-day closure due to a breakthrough in COVID-19 exposure.

According to officials, normal hours and activities will resume starting Wednesday at 10 a.m. The October Art Activity Day Project was canceled but has been reportedly recreated as a take-home kit that the public can buy on the museum’s website.

The museum’s Executive Director says that the temporary closure provided employees and volunteers time to get tested.

“In consultation with our Board of Directors, we thought a temporary closure was the prudent and responsible action to take to allow all of our employees and volunteers time to get tested to not only safeguard themselves and their families, but also our museum community and the public at large,” said Amy Moorefield, the museum’s Executive Director.

More information can be found on their website.
