All who are in public areas at Blue Licks are required to wear masks.   We may go without a mask in our workroom so long as we are socially distanced.  Our workstations will be set up with this in mind.   Each station will have two tables with two feet of space between them in order for us to be properly distanced.  


The dining room will be closed for dining in and the menu will be somewhat reduced from the normal offerings.  They do offer sandwiches and salads and have been preparing specials (soup and salad or sandwiches) some evenings.  Menus will be available at the desk when you check in. 


There are restaurants in Carlisle, about 8 miles away from the park.   A list of those will be available in our workroom.  


We are taking every precaution to make everything safe.   We want everyone to arrive healthy and return home healthy after having a great time getting together with quilting friends.
