The Ringling's Response to COVID-19

Updated March 23, 2020 @ 5:00PM

Dear Friends,

The Ringling is committed to doing our part to safeguard the health and well-being of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. We share a responsibility with all institutions and members of our community to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and have made the difficult decision to temporarily close The Ringling and all of its venues effective March 17, 2020. We will monitor the situation and announce when we will reopen at a future date.

We have carefully considered this decision, and it is in line with other arts and cultural institutions across the country and our region. The Ringling estate serves as a place of education, inspiration, and respite for our visitors. We are saddened that we will not be able to provide that to our community at this challenging time. Still, we invite you to follow our social media channels, where we will continue to share the beauty of our collections and any updates as they become available.

We thank you for your continued support of The Ringling and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible!

All programs, events, and performances have been canceled through May 31. Updates will be posted as they become available. ♦ Ticket holders will automatically receive refunds for all canceled programs and events. Please allow 2-3 weeks for refunds to be processed. We appreciate your patience! ♦

What You Can Do

Although we would love to see you at the museum, if you are sick or feeling unwell, we urge you to stay home and avoid close contact with others, as recommended by the CDC and the Florida Department of Health. Other recommendations from public health authorities include:

► Wash your hands. Do so often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
► If opportunity for hand-washing is not available, use hand sanitizers.
► Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
► Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
► Cover your coughs and sneezes. Hold a tissue over your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw that tissue away and, again, wash your hands.
► No handshakes or hugs, please. A wave or an elbow bump is acceptable for greeting others.
