As of October 2020, the following safety measures are in place for all on-site education programs:

  • Maximum of 15 participants including at least one adult participant, per group. One Green-Wood educator will be assigned to guide each group.
  • Programs take place completely outdoors.
  • Participants must wear face masks at all times while on the grounds. Green-Wood educators and other staff will also be masked at all times.
  • Group leaders must provide their Green-Wood educator with a health check form (which we will provide) that has been completed on the morning of the program prior to start of the program.
  • Participants must wash or sanitize hands at the beginning of their program. Sanitizer will be provided.
  • Participants must maintain a six-foot distance between themselves and all others, including Green-Wood staff, at all times while on site.
  • All programs are walking programs. No vehicles are used. Please also note that no outdoor area of the Cemetery is ADA compliant, however we will do our best to create wheelchair-friendly program routes whenever possible.
  • Participants will receive learning materials in a tote bag, contactless, at the start of the program to self-distribute.
  • Until further notice, all in-person pre- and post-visit classroom lessons are suspended.
