COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS AND EVENT PLAN

While we do not anticipate having more than 500 guests on our premises at one time, we will monitor our attendance through a separate entrance and exit, ticket sales and having a staff member at the exit to keep count of the number of guests leaving per hour.

1. Guest information

Signage is posted at the entrance and by the restrooms and concession area urging guests to follow the CDC guidelines to stay home if they are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms.

 

2. Staff & Volunteer Screening

All employees and volunteers will record their temperature at the beginning of each shift, as well as complete a health screening questionnaire.

 

Health Screening Questionnaire:

  1. Have you or anyone in your household had contact with any person under screening/testing for COVID-19, or with anyone who is positive for or suspected COVID-19 within the last fourteen days?

 

  1. Do you currently have any of the following symptoms?

    1. Fever (100.4°F or higher), or a sense of having a fever. 

    2. New cough that you cannot attribute to another health condition. 

    3. New shortness of breath that you cannot attribute to another health condition. 

    4. New sore throat that you cannot attribute to another health condition.

    5. New muscle aches (myalgias) that you cannot attribute to another health condition or that may have been caused by a specific activity (such as physical exercise.)

 

If an employee is deemed to have a fever or answer yes to any of the above questions the employee will be immediately asked to leave the premises. The employee may return to work after a 14-day self-quarantine or may have a doctor note to return. 

 

All employees with direct, close contact with customers or food will be required to wear a mask. If social distance is possible and the employee is outside, a mask is not required unless social distance is not possible.

 

It is mandatory for all employees and volunteers to review materials and recommendations on hand washing, cleaning and disinfecting, and when to stay home from the CDC. Employee signatures are required that they have reviewed the materials before their first shift.

 

3. Social Distancing Measures

We have revised our entrance to have two lines to allow guests to spread out while waiting, as well as incorporated online ticket sales to expedite the amount of time in line. We will have a third line only for pumpkins to keep guests spread out as well.

We will have spacing markers at all areas where lines occur (entrance, concession stand, restrooms, pedal kart track, and hayride) to encourage social distance. We have reduced the number of guests that go on the hayride at one time and will use strawbales to separate groups as needed.

5. Face Coverings Policy

We encourage all guests to wear a mask or cover while present, however, because of our ample outdoor space and ability to social distance, we do not require masks for entry. We do, however, require face masks where an appropriate amount of social distance is not possible (3 feet of space for less than 15 minutes; 6 feet of space for more than 15 mins). Specific locations, the hayride, and indoor gift shop are labeled as ‘masks required’. Employees are required to wear masks if in close contact while interacting with guests or dealing with food or beverages.

 

6. Compliance

All staff will be trained to watch and enforce these policies. Sue Kendall, Cyndy Kendall, and Brittany Bright will be charged with handling all questions and concerns over these policies.
