Safety Updates

Hagley is now open!

Visitation is currently limited to Hagley Members.

Hagley will open the lower property with miles of trails and stunning scenery along the Brandywine exclusively to Hagley Members.

With consideration for state mandates regarding social distancing and mass gatherings, Hagley is open only to Hagley Members (click here to join) on an advance reservations-only basis. 

Hagley will expand the opening of additional guest experiences in alignment with state guidelines. We look forward to welcoming more guests at that time. Please continue to consult this page for updates.

FOR YOUR SAFETY 

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

  • Limiting daily capacity and hours of entry to Hagley 
  • 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
