The well-being of our guests and employees is our top priority. To that end, we are doing the following: 

  • Offering buses at reduced capacity and spaced seating
  • Keeping the Eleutherian Mills residence closed to the public, as the space does not allow for social distancing
  • Limiting guest capacity in the indoor spaces that remain open
  • Encouraging the use of ticket purchases via website to decrease contact at admissions
  • Ensuring employees are informed and following CDC & OSHA guidelines for working during COVID-19 
  • Requiring personal protection equipment for our employees in guest areas 
  • Continuing to align our cleaning procedures with the latest guidance from the CDC, and implementing them with increased frequency 
  • Providing hand sanitizer stations at convenient locations for guest and employee use 
  • Providing clear and frequent reminders to follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and personal hygiene via signage throughout the property 
  • Monitoring guest areas to encourage social distancing and reduce group gatherings in accordance with government mandates
