The Hudson River Maritime Museum’s Wooden Boat School had a number of nitrile gloves and N95 masks on hand prior to the pandemic. Over the last few weeks, museum staff had been coordinating with the state to donate them to the state stockpile. On April 7, 170 N95 masks and 700 nitrile gloves were given to Vassar Hospital.
The Hudson River Maritime Museum is now temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. All spring events have been cancelled or postponed until the end of May. Programs occurring after May will be assessed on a rolling basis. All program registration is currently on hold.
