Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum plans reopening

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum plans to reopen to the public on Sept. 10, according to a news release.
Visitors will be asked to have their temperatures checked on entry, wear masks, practice social distancing, tour in smaller groups and enter the museum according to a prearranged, staggered schedule, according to the Tuesday news release. There also will be no in-person programming.
All the exhibitions that had opened before the museum’s March 13 closure for the pandemic have been extended. The museum is reopening now because there has been a significant decline in transmission rates locally and in new cases nationally over the past four weeks, officials said in the release.
The museum opens to members on Sept. 9, a day before opening to the general public.
