To care for our visitors, we are implementing special precautions through cleaning, staffing, and operations, including:

  • Montgomery County’s Cleaning Company will provide at least 2 “high-touch” cleaning sweeps throughout the Mansion every day that the Mansion will be open
  • Installing new MERV air filters and increasing air exchange to four times per hour
  • Opening gradually with reduced public hours
  • Limiting visitors to the Mansion to allow for adequate physical distancing
  • Rotating staff to minimize the likelihood of exposure
  • Requiring that staff, patrons, and volunteers wear a mask at all times except when seated for afternoon tea
  • Implementing screening procedures, including temperature checks, to ensure staff are not exhibiting symptoms and have not been exposed to COVID-19
  • Keeping contact information for everyone who enters the Mansion
  • Reconfiguring seating for our teas to allow adequate distance, including some outdoor seating when weather allows
  • Offering private appointments and hours for high-risk patrons
  • Providing concierge assistance in The Shop to limit patron contact with merchandise and to ensure a near contactless purchase experience

We ask that our patrons help us in our efforts to care for each other by:

  • Wearing a mask properly (over the nose and mouth) while in the Mansion
  • Providing contact information
  • Washing or sanitizing hands regularly and thoroughly
  • Maintain proper distance of at least 6 feet from staff, volunteers, or other patrons
  • Delaying your visit if you have tested positive for COVID-19, are showing any symptoms, or been exposed to a person with a COVID-19 diagnosis within the last 14 days
