SCROLL DOWN FOR CURRENT PROGRAMS AND HOURS
Our re-opening plan requires that the Lincoln/Lancaster County Covid Risk Dial be in the Green Zone for at least 2 weeks before the Observatory can be re-opened. Assuming that current mitigation strategies (masking, distancing, limitations on numbers allowed in closed spaces, etc.) continue to suppress infection/ hospitalization/ death rates, and that vaccinations continue at present or greater levels, we anticipate that the the risk dial requirement might be met in mid-summer, i.e., sometime in July. The Observatory is staffed entirely by volunteers, so we want to protect them as well as our visitors. Watch this space for our re-opening date!!
