Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. COVID-19 spreads easily and is believed to spread in similar ways to influenza which may include: spreading through the air by coughing and sneezing; close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands; and touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet). As a result, federal, state and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

The owners and managers of The Litchfield Company have put into place certain preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, The Litchfield Company cannot guarantee that you, and the other members of your party (including minor children), will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, occupancy at any of The Litchfield Company properties and the enjoyment of common areas and amenities could increase your risk and those in your party of contracting COVID-19.
