SHETLAND Amenity Trust is hoping to be able to reopen Shetland Museum and Archives to the public at the beginning of March.
The museum has stayed shut to the public since before Christmas due to the recent outbreak of coronavirus cases in Shetland.
However, with the outbreak now formally over, the trust’s acting chief executive Sandy Middleton said the plan is to reopen on 2 March.
More details will be provided in the near future.
Shetland Recreational Trust said at the weekend that its leisure centres will remain closed until at least 28 February.
Shetland Arts’ Lerwick venue Mareel remains closed for the time being, with cinemas unable to operate under level three.
