Museum Cleaning Policies

The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County has updated its best practice standards and processes for the cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of the Museum to reflect the recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and County of Sonoma Department of Health Services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These standards include:

  • All public areas of the Museum are cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day.
  • All spaces are deep cleaned at night.
  • Additional hand sanitizer stations are available in all exhibit areas.
  • Special air filters have been installed in the Museum HVAC systems
  • Outside doors will be kept open as much as possible to allow for more airflow.
  • High-touch surfaces (i.e., handrails, door handles, front desk) are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
  • Toys and props for each exhibit are changed out or sanitized throughout the day and thoroughly cleaned at the end of the day.
  • All restrooms are cleaned regularly throughout the day with deep cleaning each night.
  • All cleaning and disinfecting products and usage meet CDC guidelines.
