Out of concern for the health and safety of our visitors and staff and the potential spread of COVID-19 in our city and region, the Saint Louis Chess Club and the World Chess Hall of Fame is temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

While you are practicing self-distancing at home, watch free online chess classes on our YouTube and Twitch channels, learn about the art, history, and culture of chess, and shop chess gifts at Q Boutique.

The Saint Louis Chess Campus will be taking the following safety measures:
● Mandatory masks and wellness checks for staff and vendors
● Complimentary hand sanitizing stations and promoting frequent hand washing
● Frequent disinfecting of high-touch surfaces and routine cleaning
● Signage requesting staff, vendors and guests to maintain social distancing guidelines
● Limiting the number of staff and vendors allowed in the building
● Quarantine mail and deliveries
● Installing additional protective barriers at World Chess Hall of Fame and Saint Louis Chess Club
● Using contactless payment options and offering curbside pickup and shipping online at Q Boutique

When we do re-open to the public we will be requesting all guests to follow these guidelines:
● Proceed to the front desk for a wellness check and brief questionnaire
● Report any travel outside of the United States within the past two weeks
● Stay home if you are not feeling well or if you’ve been exposed to any viruses
● Requiring all guests to wear protective masks (available at front desk)
● Recommending all guests to wear gloves (available at front desk)
