Health & Safety During COVID-19
Health and Safety Policy Posted September 24, 2020 Updates will be made as best practices, government guidelines, and medical professional guidance evolves.
BY VISITING OUR PARK YOU VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISKS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO COVID-19.
Safety is our top priority and we have enhanced health and safety measures for you and our team. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting the park. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and/or death. According to the CDC, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. If you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, you should not enter or remain in the park.
Our goal is to work together to increase health and safety. Guests must take personal responsibility for their own health and safety when visiting by making good choices. Approved face coverings (masks) are required while visiting. We recommend guests wash hands often, use hand sanitizer, and avoid touching your face. If you or someone you have been in contact with has been sick, are displaying symptoms or has recently had a fever, please do not visit nor allow family members to do so.
