Out of an abundance of caution concerning cases of the coronavirus, or COVID-19, throughout the world, the Association of Churchill Fellows has decided to postpone this year’s Churchill Fellows Weekend, scheduled for March 14-15, 2020. The event will be rescheduled at a date to be determined.
While no cases of COVID-19 have been reported at America’s National Churchill Museum (ANCM) or Westminster College at this time, please know that the health and safety of our patrons and fellows is of our utmost concern. We will reschedule when the rough seas of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 settle.
Full refunds will be issued for those who registered for Saturday’s dinner and Sunday’s Churchill Fellows Brunch. If preferred, a receipt for the full amount of your registration will be issued as a tax-deductible donation.
Vigilance Regarding ANCM and Coronavirus & COVID-19
America’s National Churchill Museum remains open and is taking a proactive approach to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Museum and custodial staff have increased sanitation efforts in all areas of the Museum, including restrooms, exhibit areas, the gift shop and the sanctuary of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury.
We are continuing to monitor new developments and remain vigilant, reevaluating our steps and actions daily following the guidance and directives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, the City of Fulton, the Callaway County Health Department and the Wellness Department at Westminster College.
As recommended by federal, state and campus health officials, we advise that while visiting ANCM, you wash your hands, avoid needlessly touching any surfaces, do not touch your face and sneeze or cough into your sleeve. A hand-sanitizer station is conveniently located at the Admissions Desk by the Museum’s entrance, and hand-washing stations now can be found in the Museum’s restrooms.
