JEFFERSON, Iowa, July 14, 2020 — The Greene County Historical Museum in Jefferson was closed throughout the spring by threat of the corona virus but re-opened for Saturday mornings in July. It is now being closed to the public again – until further notice.
“The uptick in COVID-19 cases in surrounding counties is one of the main factors in our decision,” said Roger Aegerter, executive director of the Greene County Historical Society.
He added that he and society president David John looked “at many factors related to the museum being open, and agreed that the negative factors out-number the good things. So at this time, we are closing down the museum until further notice.”
There were few visitors when the museum was open on the first two Saturday mornings of July.
