The REALM project has released the results of natural attenuation of COVID-19 test 2. They can be found at https://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/realm-happening-now.html?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=REALM+Project+Round+1+test+results+now+available&utm_campaign=&utm_term=REALM%20Project%20Email%20Updates. Test 2 included stacked archival folders upon which, after two days of quarantine, no detectable COVID-19 virus was found. Test 3 is underway and results are expected in early August.
The video of the second SCAA Town Hall on reopening after the pandemic is now available on the South Carolina YouTube channel. The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9SSX2Yfkpk&t=14s. Please subscribe to the channel!
We are planning to add the chat transcript and a summary of the Town Hall to the SCAA website in the near future.
Another Town Hall will be held at the beginning of September after Labor Day; keep an eye out for the announcement.
The South Carolina Archival Association (SCAA) will host the second virtual Town Hall Meeting on reopening archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions to the public on June 16 from 2:15pm-3:45pm. The Town Hall will be a space for further discussion of reopening plans and what the “new normal” will look like as the date for reopening comes closer. It will allow us to share thoughts and ideas and learn from colleagues across South Carolina. Discussions will be unstructured and moderated by Brenda Burk, Head of Special Collections at Clemson University.
The Town Hall is open to everyone but you must register.
When: June 16, 2020, 2:15pm-3:45pm Eastern
