 As the coronavirus pandemic continues to have significant impacts throughout our communities, the Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries & Historic Sites is committed to supporting our members through this time of heightened risk and uncertainty. 

KAM takes guidance from the local, provincial and federal health and public safety agencies.  We consider the safety of our members, their staff and volunteers paramount.  We ask that you monitor and practice proper public safety measures – social distancing, wash your hands, sleep well, keep in good mental health. 

We have provided the following reliable public information links for your reference:

KFL&A Public Health – COVID-19

City of Kingston – COVID-19

Operationally, KAM staff continue to be available by e-mail and phone, although we have taken measures to limit in-person, committee and working group meetings at the KAM offices.  We continue to process information and develop contingencies for our programming initiatives.  We maintain open communication with our funders and other external stakeholders.  We remain positive and hopeful as we move forward.
