RSM said it needs more time to ensure new safety and cleaning protocols are in place. It said the additional time will also give them a chance to add to exhibits and programming.
“We know how creative the exhibit designers, artists, skilled craftspeople and programmers are,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.
“They took the opportunity to work in the gallery during the closure and the results of their efforts, including creative new exhibits in the CN T.Rex Gallery, will bring more wonder and enjoyment to this world-class exhibit.”
RSM is working to reopen sometime this summer, but no date has been confirmed.
It said the T.Rex Discovery Centre will not reopen in 2020.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out. In situations where you can’t keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent spreading the respiratory droplets that can carry the virus.
