2020 EVENT HOST UNDERSTANDING - DIY
Due to the pandemic, Do It Yourself (DIY) events are encouraged so to promote social distancing among attendees while still accessing special places in Essex County. DIY events can provide attendees with more comfort in safely accessing your site or participating in your activity by doing it on their own time.
Many sites & organizations already have activities that can be adapted for DIY events. If you are unsure if your existing work can or should be adapted, please reach out to Essex Heritage for guidance.
