The BCHA is committed to providing our guests with the best possible experience and so long as we are open, we ask that all guests follow the COVID-19 protocols listed below. Guests that fail to follow these rules will be asked to leave for the safety of our staff and other visitors. If you have questions about these policies, please contact us.
Please note that due to the unpredictable nature of this disease, this policy can and will change in accordance to community health concerns and governor’s orders.
The number of guests allowed in each building is 10 and large groups will be required to split up in order to comply with current Executive Orders.
- Large groups that do not comply with this rule will be asked to leave.
Face coverings are required to enter any building on campus by visitors over the age of 5 years old.
- They must cover nose and mouth. Guests will be turned away if they are not prepared or refuse to comply with this requirement.
- Acceptable face coverings include masks, bandanas, face shields, scarves, or a loose head covering.
- This order will be in effect so long as Executive Order 2020-167 remains active.
- Those with disabilities who cannot wear a mask may visit our grounds, but we encourage you to contact us ahead of time to determine if the site is safe for you to visit.
Guests who appear sick will be turned away for the safety of our guests and staff.
The grounds will close at 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday to allow staff the time to clean and prepare the grounds for the next day.
The entire grounds is deep cleaned twice a week, all public areas are cleaned daily, and high traffic areas are cleaned throughout the day.
Hand sanitizer stations are located inside the Courthouse and the Sheriff’s Residence and bathrooms are located inside the lower level of the Courthouse.
Bennett’s Forge and Murdock Cabin are pass-through only at this time and we ask that guests not linger there. Because of their small space, we are limiting visitors inside to no more than 5 people at a time.
While on the grounds after closing, guests are recommended to continue to wear their masks, but are not required if they are able to maintain six feet distancing between guests.
BCHA staff will have masks on when greeting guests and sneeze guards provide a barrier between the public and our staff. Additional safety compliance protocols will be implemented as required by law or the CDC.
