Effective May 1, when outdoors in the garden, face coverings are not required but still suggested when social distancing is not an option. Face coverings are still required for all indoor spaces with no exceptions. We are still requiring face coverings during the Cool Thursdays concerts, as well as for staff and volunteers. That policy does not change. Reservations required for members and nonmembers.
