Getty Villa Extends Closure | Castellammare
The Getty Villa and Getty Center will not reopen before January 2021, according to a statement on the Getty website.
“Getty will continue to pay all employees, salaried and hourly, in full during this period,” according to the statement. “In line with the Los Angeles and California Safer at Home emergency order, Getty has transitioned to telecommuting (work from home) for all staff but those in critical facilities and security operations.”
Both locations are closed to the public and most staff as the region works to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
“As of July 13, California’s governor mandated that indoor museums must remain closed due to increasing coronavirus cases in California,” the statement continued. “There is no timeline for easing this restriction, so we do not yet have firm dates for reopening. We are preparing for an eventual reopening by putting in place measures required by Los Angeles County health officials that support the health and well-being of all visitors and staff.”
When the Getty Villa and Center reopen, plans include timed-entry tickets, face coverings and temperature checks.
