The art world is a complex industry made up of many distinct services. With this is mind, it is essential that industry-specific guidelines are adopted in regards to how workers can safely do their jobs in a post-coronavirus world. We seek to do the following:
Provide basic, universal guidelines for necessary person-to-person interactions, especially in regards to the direct handling of cultural heritage objects.
Provide information and resources on PPE, social distancing, and other best practices with the aim of reducing potential exposure to COVID-19.
Connect relevant institutions, services, and vendors who wish to collaborate on safety initiatives.
