COVID Policies and Procedures
The Calvert Nature Society has developed policies and procedures for public program operations based on state and CDC guidelines.
These policies are effective from June 5 until otherwise rescinded:
- All participants over the age of 2 (including parents) must wear a mask when social distancing is not possible. Participants must provide their own masks.
- Please consider the safety, health, and well-being of all participants in our programs and stay home if the participant is ill. Full refunds will be given for cancellations due to health concerns.
- Prior to participation in any Society sponsored program, we will ask each individual, to if under 18 a parent, to complete a participant waiver.
Please download and complete the waiver prior to the program. You may complete it online and email to CypressSwamp@CalvertCountyMD.gov, or print it and bring to the program. The waiver only needs to be completed once per year.
Please read our full policy statement and waiver.
