That Saturday-night emergency alert didn't just startle those of us sitting around at home — it also spurred two local institutions to take immediate action.

On Sunday morning, the Witte Museum and DoSeum both announced that they would temporarily close their doors. The Witte initially reopened in late May, while the DoSeum had begun to resume operations for members starting last week.

Both institutions put in place temporary closures through Tuesday, June 30, with tentative plans to reopen on July 1.

However, with cases continuing to rise at an alarming rate, museum-lovers may want to prepare for another long wait.
