Safety Policies

In consideration of the changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic and in an effort to keep our staff, volunteers and visitors as safe as possible, we ask all visitors to wear a mask while inside our buildings and to socially distance from other groups during their visit.

If there are questions about our policy or if your circumstances require special consideration, please contact us at (860) 567-4501. We will do everything we can to make your visit possible.

If you feel sick, have experienced a fever, have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to people who tested positive for COVID-19, please do not visit the Litchfield Historical Society at this time.

For Outdoor Programs

To ensure safe and successful participation during children’s programs, we ask participants to wear a mask. We will incorporate frequent, distanced mask-free activities into all programs.
