Calypso's COVID-19 Response

Updated May 17, 2022

We know that COVID-19 will continue to impact our communities this season. We will continue to monitor the situation in Fairbanks and implement safety precautions as needed. We will make decisions regarding safety measures closer to individual program dates, however, our current policy is as follows:

  • Visitors will be required to wear a mask while in indoor spaces such as the greenhouse, Resource Center, etc.
  • Outdoor masking is generally not required, however: in order to keep our programs accessible to all, especially those who are immunocompromised, we will require masks outdoors if warranted based on the needs of the group and/or for certain programs.

Our highest priority is keeping our community safe and we will do our best to communicate with visitors throughout the season to let you know of any changes to our programs or policies.

Community Food Relief

We will continue our food relief work during the growing season, increasing accessibility and providing food to those who need it most in the Fairbanks community. A permanent fund to support this work has been established in honor of our dear friend, Dotty Harris, whose passion for helping people was unmatched.
