COVID-19 GUIDELINES

Due to the city’s Emergency Executive Proclamation 2020-005, masks are now required in public spaces. The nature of our environmental education programs makes it difficult to ensure adequate social distancing, therefore, masks will be required except for those less than 6 years old or with respiratory issues. We appreciate your cooperation by bringing your own mask to any of our programs until further notice. All other guidelines previously shared remain unchanged.

Due to COVID-19, the following precautions will be in place at all programs until further notice:

  • Service projects will be presented on a first-come basis with a limit of fifty (50) participants.
  • Social distancing of at least 6 feet apart is to be expected for individuals and/or family groups.
  • Use of cloth face coverings is currently required for attendees with the exception of young children or those with respiratory issues.
  • Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette are advised.
  • Please stay home if you are ill or have tested positive for COVID-19 or are showing symptoms or had close contact with a person who has symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
  • Type None if no organization
