ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Kids Square children’s museum in southeast Roanoke will be closed for more than a week as a precautionary measure after an employee tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Kids Square is committed to the safety of families in our community,” Kids Square posted on Facebook on Sunday, Dec. 27. “For this reason, we will be completely transparent as we walk through this pandemic together.”
While Kids Square says no coworkers were in close contact with the positive employee — who has not worked on the exhibit floor for more than 10 days — the museum will be closing for 10 days to be professionally cleaned and sanitized.
The museum is set to reopen on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.
