As we navigate through this unprecedented time, Hatch Show Print and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum have implemented a number of new safety measures based on guidance from health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies. The safety and well-being of our guests and employees are our top priority and guide our decisions.
We have taken enhanced health and safety measures to help ensure a safe environment for our guests and staff. Please follow all posted instructions during your visit.
Per the CDC: “Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. There is no way to ensure zero risk of infection. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. If you decide to engage in public activities, continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions.” Additionally the CDC states that, “older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”
By visiting the Museum and its ancillary properties, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
