NHMLA Coronavirus Update
I was originally hoping to write a post today detailing all of the creative outreach activities that the ichthyology collection has participated in the past several months, culminating in our Nature Fest that was scheduled for this last weekend. However, the rapid spread of the coronavirus, and the importance of a unified community response to slow this spread, means this post will not be about community outreach, but rather our commitment as a museum to joining the efforts of the community to minimize the spread of Covid-19. Nature Fest and all other events at the NHMLA have been postponed, and the museum is closed to the public until further notice. Likewise, our collections are closed to researchers during this time, and loans to other institutions may be delayed as well. If you are sending a loan back to us, please check with either Todd or myself prior to doing so to make sure we will be there to receive the loan. Please see the official announcement below, and check in with the NHMLA website for up-to-date information. We will get through this as a community, and once we do we will be back with more fun outreach events, new scientific discoveries, and fun fish facts. In the meantime, wash your hands, follow advice from the CDC, and stay safe.
