Message from the Director about COVID-19 & The Historical Society

Due to recent warnings and alerts regarding COVID-19, commonly referred to as Coronavirus, the Bedford Historical Society & Museum will close temporarily to the public until Tuesday, May 5, 2020.

Because of COVID-19, the BHS&M Annual Meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 7 has been postponed and will be reschedule as soon as we are able. Similarily, the BHS&M Board of Trustee Meeting has also been postponed and will be reschedule as soon as we are able. Updates will be announced on our social media platforms as soon as the dates are determined.

To slow transmission of the COVID-19 and other infectious respiratory diseases (including the flu), we are following the recommendations set forth by the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, the Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which suggests that all should continue to practice good hygiene habits such as:

 Stay at home when you are sick

  1. Avoid contact with people who are sick
  2. Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds or longer and then dry hands with a clean towel or air dry
  3. Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands or after touching surfaces
  5. Clean and disinfect “High-Touch” surfaces often (counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables).
  6. Call before visiting your doctor

We are also encouraging community members (especially older adults and others who are more susceptible to illness) to practice social distancing as recommended by the CDC.

Please note that the Museum’s Speaker Series scheduled for Tuesday April 2 as well as the Soupcon events scheduled for Friday, March 20 and Friday, April 17 have been postponed.

Again, please visit the Bedford Historical Society & Museum’s website and social media platforms for future updates.
