Managing the Shedd Aquarium Through the Pandemic Shutdown

How the facility team helped successfully reopen the Chicago landmark in January

For many facilities across the United States, a pandemic shutdown meant no or very few building occupants. But that wasn’t the case at the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.
