Coronavirus in Oklahoma: Duncan's Chisholm Trail Heritage Center announces reopening date
DUNCAN - The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center has announced the reopening date for its facilities.
As previously reported, the institution closed temporarily in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The center will reopen to the public on June 9 with both physical and operational changes that will allow guest access to most of the facility.
Its new operating schedule is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
Here are the safety guidelines that visitors can expect:
• The number of guests is limited to 25 at a time.
• Face covering or masks are required for all guests and staff while inside the center.
• The staff will assist families and groups in enjoying their time together while maintaining distance from other groups. The museum is thoroughly sanitized every day, and the institution has strengthened its daily cleaning schedule.
• Visitors will see staff continually sanitizing all areas of the museum throughout the day.
• Seating in the theaters will be limited to one family or group at a time, and staffers will sanitize the seating areas after each show.
Visitors are asked to be prepared to wait if the facility is already at its maximum capacity of 25 visitors. While they wait, guests can peruse the exterior grounds, visit the monument, explore the Chisholm Trail pathway, check out the new walking trail or spend some time with friends and family under the portico.
Guests also are asked to practice social distancing while visiting the Heritage Center, both indoors and outdoors. Those who have groups of 10 or more should call ahead before their arrival.
