WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10, 2020


As more areas begin to open back up in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio and the Frederick C. Robie House have posted their own reopening notices.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust recently posted new tour guidelines for in-person tours at those locations, which are in accordance with Phase 3 of the five-phase “Restore Illinois” plan.

Protocols

“The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is committed to the health and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers,” the organization notes, detailing cleaning procedures, social distancing and personal protection plans.
