Temporarily closing off a closet

As part of a bathroom remodel, I need to close off a closet while the new shower is being built. This is to keep the old shower operational while building the new shower in another part of the bathroom. The new shower surround will cover up the closet door. When the new shower is complete, we will demo the wall between the old shower and the closet. The old shower door will become the closet door and the space of the old shower will be added to the closet.

So now my question: Is there anything to do to prepare the closet for being closed off for a few weeks? For example, there is an AC vent in there, and I'm assuming it would be good to close it. Are there any other considerations that I am not thinking about?

Completely empty the contents of the closet.

Yes, I was planning on that, obviously. I just didn't know about air flow/moisture, etc. Other considerations. I've never had to seal a space before and just wanted to check to see if there things to consider.
