Billings Farm & Museum provides COVID-19 Statement

March 13, 2020- While Billings Farm & Museum is closed for general visitation, as scheduled, until April 10, the health and safety of Billings Farm & Museum staff and visitors is of the utmost importance.

In an effort to protect the welfare of our staff, patrons, and community from the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak during our scheduled Woodstock Vermont Film Series showings in March and April, Billings Farm & Museum is following CDC guidelines and has implemented the following measures:
• Using CDC-approved cleaners to disinfect the armrests, seat backs, door knobs, bathroom fixtures, and countertop before and after each film screening.
• Installing an additional hand sanitizer station in the Visitor Center.
• Providing individually wrapped treats at the refreshment table.

We remind our staff and the public to continue to follow CDC guidelines for respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene. All sick employees are required to stay home.

We are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely to determine how it may affect our events, activities, and operations. We will communicate any event cancelations, postponements, or shifts in format with registered attendees and will post notifications on our website and Facebook page.

If you must miss an event at Billings Farm for which you registered due to COVID-19 or precautions related to COVID-19, Billings Farm & Museum will hold a credit or issue a refund.

We will continue to monitor the most up-to-date developments and recommendations and will follow public health officials’ guidelines.
