Qatar Museums, in co-operation with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), has organised a campaign to sanitise and disinfect its museums and parks, as part of precautionary and preventive measures to counter the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
Sanitisation, spraying and disinfection work is targeting buildings, internal streets, parking areas, parks and playgrounds at the National Museum of Qatar, the Museum of Islamic Art, and the Fire Station: Artist in Residence.

“Thanks to the support and in co-operation with MME, the sanitisation campaign of our museums has been achieved in line with the preventive measures taken by the state to control the spreading of this emerging virus,” Qatar Museums CEO Ahmad al-Namla said in a press statement.
“As we are facing this unprecedented situation, it is paramount to help stop the spread of Covid-19 and ensure the health and safety of our society. So while our museums remain closed, QM has taken steps to give access to our galleries, collections and programmes through digital platforms, in order to continue to fulfill our critical mission, virtually, of providing places for respite, education and inspiration,” he added.
