MOCA Bans Cloth Masks as Omicron Wave Surges

Between staff sickouts and general concerns about visitor safety, other museums are starting to react. The Underground Museum has postponed its reopening (formerly planned for Jan. 12). The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures has temporarily shut down its premium-price photo op, the Oscar Experience.
For what it's worth, a University of Washington model estimates that omicron infections have just peaked. Stay safe.
UPDATE: The UCLA Fowler Museum has closed during the surge.
However, I'd recommend they give N95 masks to their directors. That may help lower the illness caused by revolving doors.
