Volunteer Masking and Distancing Protocols

Fallingwater currently has the following guidelines in place to help keep staff, visitors and volunteers safe from COVID-19.

  • Vaccinated and unvaccinated volunteers are required to wear masks indoors at Fallingwater’s buildings that are open to visitors, including in the house, café, museum store, gallery and the Visitor Center.
  • Vaccinated volunteers are not required to wear masks in Fallingwater’s office buildings (e.g.: Barn, Visitor Services Building, Gardener’s Cottage, maintenance shop, kitchen), but still must wear masks in indoor spaces that are open to visitors.
  • The following protocols apply to all volunteers regardless of vaccination status:
    • Masks are not required outdoors, including the outdoor portion of the guided tour, unless volunteers will be working less than six feet apart from another person.
    • Masks may be worn outdoors voluntarily by volunteers at any time.
