It’s been just revealed that the Natural History Museum has been forced to close its doors from Tuesday due to “front-of-house shortages” impacted by Covid-19.
The South Kensington Museum will remain closed for one week in the hope that “staffing levels will have recovered”.
In a statement, it said the following:
“We have made the difficult decision to close our South Kensington site from Tuesday December 21 due to front-of-house staff shortages which have been impacted by Covid-19 infections and isolation requirements. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but the safety of staff and visitors must always come first.”
The notes continued:
“If you have bought tickets for Wildlife Photographer of the Year or Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature for these dates, these will be cancelled and refunded. If you’ve bought tickets to one of our events we will email you with further information.”
Moderna Inc said on Monday that a booster dose of its covid vaccine appeared to be protective against the fast-spreading Omicron variant in laboratory testing and that the current version of the vaccine would continue to be Moderna’s “first line of defense against Omicron.”
“What we have available right now is 1273,” Dr. Paul Burton, Moderna’s Chief Medical Officer, said in an interview.
He continued and said this:
“It’s highly effective, and it’s extremely safe. I think it will protect people through the coming holiday period and through these winter months, when we’re going to see the most severe pressure of Omicron.”
