Businesses of all kinds are working to adapt to the coronavirus in different ways to protect their employees and guests.

Duluth's Lake Superior Railroad Museum is doing this by going "touchless" for their video displays. The Depot has over 30 interactive displays that use buttons to play videos at their exhibits. 

The buttons are all gone now so visitors can have a touch free experience.

"This is a proximity sensitive switch. and all you do is run your hand in front of it and it starts the video," said Ken Buehler, Executive Director of the Lake Superior Railroad Museum.

This will allow the museum to meet safety guidelines for everyone there. These proximity switches will only turn on if you wave your hand between two to four inches in front of it, so just walking by won't make it turn on.

The museum is still working on a timeline for when they prepare to reopen.
