In keeping with the CDC and Governor Kemp’s recommendations, we highly suggest wearing a mask and practicing proper social distancing whilst visiting the WHHM&EC.  Docents will be wearing masks, but we defer to each school’s policy regarding masks for the students.  We regret that, at this time, we cannot offer the hayride due to social distancing guidelines.
