The Farm at Prophetstown Update

 

Coronavirus Precautions

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new virus that has recently emerged that causes respiratory distress and disease. The Farm at Prophetstown always values the health and safety of our guests and staff. We, along with the DNR here at Prophetstown Park, are monitoring announcements by officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which issued a warning about the likelihood of a coronavirus outbreak and the potential need for more aggressive measures to contain it. In addition to our usual stringent and thorough cleaning and health practices, we are adhering to the following steps issued by the CDC to help reduce the spread of the disease on our grounds and in our community

What we are doing:

  • We are closely following CDC updates and recommendations and updating our procedures accordingly as needed.
  • We have hand-sanitizer located on The Farm and will keep that out for visitors as long as our supplies last.
  • Our staff are proactively wiping down surfaces like doorknobs daily with cleaning solution.
  • We are requiring staff to stay home if they are sick.
  • We will take all precautions necessary to protect guests and staff.
  • We will continue to monitor the spread of the virus, consult with state and local health experts, and make the most informed decision possible at that time.

What you can do as a guest:

Follow these recommended preventative actions from the CDC to help prevent the spread of the virus.

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it in the trash.
  • Practice social distancing in public areas

 

We will continue to monitor the spread of the virus, consult with state and local health experts, and make the most informed decision possible at that time.

 

We want our guests and staff to feel as comfortable as possible when visiting our businesses. We hope some fresh air at The Farm may be comforting and inviting.
