BALTIMORE — Amid a rise in new COVID-19 cases, the Baltimore Museum of Art and Walters have made the decision to temporarily close their doors.

The moves are effective Wednesday at 5 pm.

Tentatively the plan is to reopen both museums on January 6.

In the meantime, BMA's outdoor sculpture garden, the shop, Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen, and Stripes and Stars: Reclaiming Lakota Independence will remain open Sunday through Wednesday from 10 am to 5 pm.

BMA is expected to retain its entire staff during the closures.
