  • Encouraging mask use outdoors, especially where distancing may be more difficult. Staff are required to wear masks when in close contact with the public, and always indoors. 

  • Closing all public indoor areas (including eating areas)..

  • Not permitting any party or group bookings, or performance type activities to ensure social distancing can be maintained (No crowding). until restrictions are lifted.

  • Instituting maximum capacity limits, as well as capacity limits in defined spaces based on a reasonable distancing. Visitors are required to purchase timed admission tickets in advance. 

  • Reinforcing 2m distancing through terms of agreement on tickets, at check-in, and through signage throughout the farm. 

  • Clear signage is posted online and at the entrance of the facility. Fence posts and railings are spaced 7 to 10’ apart. Guests are to maintain a one fence post distance from others. 

  • Walking trails are designed with adequate spacing for guests to pass each other while maintaining a minimum of 2m distance.

  • Common areas, animal areas, and washroom facilities are disinfected routinely.

  • All screens, debit machines, and other points of contact are wiped down between uses.

  • Picnic areas are spaced out to ensure social distancing, and wiped frequently.
