Now that September is here, perhaps you won’t feel a significant change in activities during the pandemic due to many essential businesses operating for the last couple of months. However, things are looking optimistic for some cultural venues and other activities that finally will be able to restart some activities this month (or they already have).
For our Albuquerque readers, if you’re looking for museums in New Mexico open today, or New Mexico gyms reopening, then keep reading because we’ll give you the latest update about this kind of business. For your comfort, the majority of the companies enlist above are from Albuquerque.
Museums and cultural facilities
This September, there will be several museum reopenings in Albuquerque. The Cultural Service Department of the city announced that some cultural facilities are restarting indoor exhibitions but following strict health measures and reduced capacity. Also, purchasing your tickets online will be the new norm. Check more information on the city’s website.
Starting on September 15, The Albuquerque Museum will resume indoor activities, followed by The Balloon Museum the next day. Both organizations produced hours of quality content on their website, momentarily substituting the in-person experience, but now they are ready to receive visitors without too much risk. However, the New Mexico Holocaust Museum will reopen first, starting September 1, with major renovations finished and several new exhibitions.
The Albuquerque BioPark’s reopening is still to be announced, and the Explora is staying closed because of its many hands-on exhibitions.
Restaurants, coffee shops, wineries, and breweries
After a long time now, some restaurants might have been offering indoor services, mostly beginning in September. However, the majority of places will keep doing deliveries, take-out, and outdoor dining. This new measure will allow business owners to operate at a 25% capacity indoors and their regular outdoor dining options. Customers will be able to dine out with their families and enjoy a complete experience.
Church Street Cafe at Old Town is one of the places in Old Town that gives a warm welcome to customers. With this familiar atmosphere, people can escape the hot weather and feel at home for at least a couple of hours while the staff takes care of health measures. Other places like Nexus Brewery at Pan American Fwy hired extra personnel to handle this new feature appropriately. Classic restaurants like the 50-years Frontier Restaurants are already operating indoors with success.
Fitness centers and gyms
Although many small gyms haven’t been able to reopen because of the strict health measures (among operating at a 25% capacity), some larger fitness centers have been open since last month. SWEAT Yoga Studio is a fitness center that offers small classes after being closed for more than four months. The New Mexico Sports and Wellness locations are other facilities that restart operations following the mandatory preventive measures.
We hope that you’ll stay safe this September and enjoy quality time with your family or friends in some of these businesses. Also, if you are a business owner and need to restart operation with optimal hygiene measures, or simply you want to keep your home sanitized and clean, call Green Sweep cleaning in Albuquerque or book your service on our website.
