Coronavirus (COVID-19) and The MAX

Your health and safety are important to us!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and The MAX

Your health and safety are important to us!

April 1, 2020

A Message from Our CEO

This is a moment unlike any other in modern history. Around the state of Mississippi, museums, libraries, and theaters are closing to the public to protect the health and safety of our communities. The MAX is no exception. We have temporarily closed our doors to staff and visitors. All of us at The MAX will do our part to flatten the curve for our fellow citizens, first responders, essential businesses, and health care heroes.

During this time The MAX has expanded our presence on social media to offer gallery tours and close views of works in the collection, which allows for a visit to The MAX from anywhere, at any time.

We have expanded our Brown Bag series to a weekly offering of music from a Mississippi artist and we will have educational content and other activities added daily.

Make sure to follow along on The MAX’s  FacebookInstagram or Twitter pages and this website for additional updates. We look forward to welcoming you back. But most of all, be safe.

A Message from The MAX

As we all navigate the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we at Mississippi’s Arts + Entertainment Experience (The MAX) want to share with you the extra precautions being taken to minimize the risks to you and your guests/family.

The management and staff at The MAX are taking a number of precautionary measures within our facility to make sure spaces, surfaces and restrooms are sanitized, waste is properly managed and disposed of, and our staff is mindful of the need for less personal contact during this time.

We are urging both our employees and guests to stay home if they feel ill, and we are available to answer any questions you may have about this situation and what impact it may have on our facility and/or your experience.

The bottom line is we want you to feel comfortable at The MAX, as you enjoy what our facility has to offer.

We continue to monitor the situation and will follow all guidelines of both local and state health agencies in keeping risks low.

All public events (over 250 expected attendance) have been rescheduled for another date and private events are being evaluated on a case by case basis. All tickets purchased in advance will be honored on the new scheduled date. Please visit our social media channels or this page for additional updates.

Steps currently taken include the following:

  • Informational posters have been placed in all restrooms, studios and food prep areas
  • Hand sanitizer has been distributed to all staff and workstations
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed at public entrances/exits and designated exhibit gallery locations
  • Cleaning assignments by housekeeping staff have been increased, particularly in restrooms and at drinking fountains
  • Increased frequency of disinfecting exhibits
  • Review emergency disaster plans
  • Providing our staff, volunteers and Board members with up-to-date information to keep them – and their families – informed, aware and protected throughout this situation

Thank you for your patience during this situation as we make every effort to support our guests, supporters, employees, and community.

Mark Tullos Jr.
President and CEO
