When a loan box is returned to the Museum during the current period of Museum closure, it is received by a museum volunteer wearing face mask and gloves. We ask that the person returning the loan box wear a face mask. Each returned loan box is carefully checked, using the checklist that was prepared at the time of borrowing, to ensure that all items are present, nothing is damaged, and all items have been packed neatly and securely in the loan box / suitcase / carry case. Following checking, the loan box is then placed in a secure area where it is left untouched for a period of at least two weeks.
When a loan box has been requested for borrowing, payment needs to be made before the loan can be confirmed. The loan box is checked using a prepared checklist prior to issue. Again, checking is carried out by a volunteer wearing gloves and a face mask.
When collecting the loan box, the borrower will arrive at the Museum on an agreed date and time and required to sign a hard copy of the Loan Agreement. We ask that the person borrowing the loan box wear a face mask. The loan box will be handed over by a volunteer who will be wearing gloves and a face mask.
When the Museum reopens, collection and return of loan boxes will take place inside the Museum, with all of the above precautions in place. Hand gel will be available in the Museum.
