Thanks everyone who signed our petition and put pressure on the government to keep those working in heritage safe. Last week, we won! The government extended the mask mandate to museums, galleries and libraries in England.
90% of our members in the heritage sector had told us they supported toughening up mask rules and that the voluntary rules weren't working.
We will continue campaigning to ensure appropriate safety measures remain in place to protect both staff and visitors to our heritage sites. We will also seek financial security for our members in the event that further restrictions come into force.
