Security guarantee

Visits to museums will be carried out individually or in groups and provided that the interpersonal safety distance of two meters is maintained. Users must wear a mask, they will have dispensers of hydroalcoholic gels or disinfectants at their disposal and, if they need to use the toilets, they can do so as long as they are occupied by a maximum of one person. In addition, they will have indicator marks on the ground to delimit the exhibition spaces and posters with hygiene recommendations. The Canary Islands and America Documentation Center (Cedocam) keeps the use of computers and computer media restricted and the works must be requested from the staff who, after use, will deposit them in a secluded place and separated from each other for at least fourteen days.
