Blackhawk Museum has implemented enhanced cleaning regimens and increased the number of available cleaning and sanitizing stations throughout the museum. Free hand sanitizer stations will be placed in each gallery and in the main lobby. Employees will be continuously cleaning surfaces, including windows, benches, railings, restrooms, and elevators. The building will also receive a further thorough cleaning before the entry of visitors and members each day.
