Covid 19: Our Response

At the Imagination Station we are committed to doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our community, staff, visitors and volunteers. While we remain closed to the general public, we are continuing to encourage curiosity and wonder through our social media pages, providing resources for learning at home, and weekly Summer Science Academy camps.

On May 5th, Governor Cooper modified North Carolina’s Stay At Home Executive Order, transitioning the state to Phase 1 of slowly easing COVID-19 restrictions. Executive Order 138 went into effect on Friday, May 8 at 5 pm and includes the continued closure of museums. In accordance with Executive Order 138, day camps and programs for children and teens may operate only if they are in full compliance with the Interim Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Guidance for Day Camp or Program Settings Serving Children and Teens. Day programs and camps for adults are not covered by Executive Order 138. Starting at 5pm on Friday May 22, 2020, North Carolina will begin Phase 2. Here's what we're doing:

  • Our Space

    • Routine cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces
    • Daily sanitizing of all areas 
    • Weekly deep clean of all public areas

  • Our People

    • Every morning our staff receives a wellness check-in that includes relevant health questions and checking temperatures
    • Everyone is required to sanitize and wash their hands when they enter the building and frequently throughout the day
    • Everyone in the building is required to wear a face mask when within 6 feet of another person

  • Our Community

    • Providing face masks to all visitors and encouraging their use
    • Clearly marking areas to define safe social distancing paths
    • Posting information about signs, symptoms, and safe practices during COVID-19
