These include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell, congestion, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms apart from existing health conditions, please do not visit. Come see us when you are symptom-free. Read more on the CDC website.
Bring a face covering.
In our natural areas, you’ll need to wear a face covering when passing someone on a path. (Otherwise, please step aside to let them pass.) At our main garden, you must wear a mask indoors, including to use the restroom, or outdoors if you’re unable to maintain six feet of distance from anyone you’re not isolating with.
Keep your distance.
Please stay at least six feet away from other visitors, volunteers and staff. Before starting down a narrow path, check for others ahead of you and be prepared to wait in a more open area for them to pass by.
