TO KENTUCKY GARDENERS: GIVEN THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT THAT WE ARE ALL LIVING IN, WE ARE ASKING THAT ALL KENTUCKY GARDENERS ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING:
Ohio’s Director of Health, Dr. Amy Acton, encourages us to garden and it can be done safely if we:
1. Stay home if you are not feeling well;
2. Adhere to social distancing practices – stay 6 feet apart from our fellow gardeners and wear a mask if you are closer than 6 feet apart;
3. Wipe down the handles of all the garden tools you have used including the wheel barrows, lawn mower, weed wacker and tillers with the bleach water and paper towels that are in the field house.
4. Wash your hands with soap and water and use paper towels to dry your hands;
5. When leaving the garden, take a paper towel dampened with bleach water and wipe down the gate handle and lock on the front gate;
6. No picnics, meetings or other social events will be allowed in the garden this season.
7. For your own and other’s safety, the Cuyahoga County Department of Health advises that if you are not feeling well (fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, stomach ache, headaches, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, runny nose, chills or fatigue) stay away from the garden for at least a week after you are symptom free. If you have had the Covid 19 virus, it is advised that you remain at home for 14 days.
8. The Kentucky Garden Steering Committee reminds each gardener to take responsibility for their own health and safety during the COVID crisis, as the Steering Committee functions only in an advisory role to facilitate gardening at Kentucky Garden, and not in any official capacity.

THANK YOU EVERYONE AND WE WILL HAVE A GREAT GARDENING SEASON DESPITE THE DEMONS,
THE KENTUCKY GARDEN STEERING COMMITTEE
