14 Mar A Message About COVID-19
Updated: March 17th, 2020
Dear Friends of Learning Tree Farm,
With the COVID-19 situation continuing to evolve, we are adjusting how we are responding at Learning Tree Farm. Given the close quarters in our barns and for the health and safety of our guests and employees, we are now canceling all group programming until further notice. We are also closing our Century House and barns to visitors. Our hiking trails will be open for use.
The following steps are being taken for any smaller groups or drop-in visitors:
- Reinforcing high cleanliness and sanitation standards.
- Devoting additional resources to cleaning and sanitizing repeatedly throughout the day. This will be done before and after any group visits.
- Concentrating on high-use surfaces such as door handles, restrooms, gates, and picnic tables.
- Reminding our staff of the importance of staying home when sick.
- Asking that all visitors also please stay home if you are not well. If we notice a guest who may be sick, we will kindly ask them to come back when they are feeling better. This not only protects our other guests but our animals as well.
We are aware that at Learning Tree Farm we do not have hand-washing stations. However, we do have hand-sanitizer stations and bottles throughout the facility. Our staff will remind guests to use these frequently during their visit.
Otherwise, we ask that everyone adhere to the CDC guidelines listed here – CDC Guidelines for schools and childcare and follow the protocols that are being set forth by the state and federal governments. We will continue to keep you informed during this ever-changing time.
We at Learning Tree Farm love our local community and want you to be able to enjoy our fresh air and wide-open spaces in the safest way possible. We will keep everyone up to date on any changes as they occur and look forward to welcoming you back later in our Spring season.
