Buffalo, NY - The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens announced today they will reopen to the public on July 15, 2020 with early access to members on July 8. They can’t wait to be #BackUnderTheDome! The COVID-19 health crisis is rapidly evolving and the health and safety of all visitors, staff, volunteers and the extended community is extremely important. 

The President/CEO, David Swarts states, “Public gardens are indispensable to community healing, offering much-needed places for respite and connection with nature.  The loss of revenue due to the COVID-19 situation is devastating and with 94% of our budget coming from membership, admission and fundraising efforts, the community’s support of the Botanical Gardens is important now more than ever.”

A task force, comprised of a cross section of staff members was created to develop a plan to reopen the Botanical Gardens in the safest way possible. The comprehensive reopening plan and sanitization strategies are designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Cleaning and sanitizing are a top priority, and with the recommendations provided by the CDC, the Botanical Gardens has created a high standard of cleaning and disinfecting on its campus to ensure everyone is safe.  Touchable surfaces, with particular attention given to high-touch areas, will be cleaned and sanitized with a CDC approved cleaner/disinfectant several times per day including but not limited to: before the Botanical Gardens opens to the public, at mid-day and at the close of business. Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed throughout the Botanical Gardens and signage will be placed throughout the Botanical Gardens to remind visitors to wash their hands often, use the sanitizer dispensers, avoid touching surfaces and plants, wear face coverings and maintain safe social distancing.

To provide an orderly transition while maintaining safety, the Botanical Gardens’ transparent and flexible reopening plan is organized into three phases: Phase One: Initial, many restrictions; Phase Two: Modified, some restrictions lifted; Phase Three: New Normal operations.

At this point, Phase One is planned to run for four weeks. Phase one, week one, will take place July 8 through July 12 and will welcome current Botanical Gardens members to visit the Botanical Gardens with reserved, timed e-tickets from 11am to 3pm, Wednesday through Sunday with early access to high-risk members from 10am to 11am on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Phase one, week two will welcome the public back to the Botanical Gardens with pre-purchased, timed e-tickets and will follow the same open scheduled hours as week one. Phase One, weeks three through four will follow the same hours of operation as week one and two however, timed admission tickets are available at the door if capacity has not been reached at the time of purchase.

For everyone's safety, visitors and staff must follow the Botanical Gardens’ Safety Etiquette Guidelines. Individuals not following these guidelines will be asked to leave the Botanical Gardens in accordance with Governor Cuomo’s New York State Executive Order.  Visitors must wear face coverings at all times when inside all Botanical Gardens’ buildings and when safe social distancing cannot be maintained outside.  Children 2 and under are not required to wear a face covering. Visitors are required to wash their hands and utilize hand sanitizing stations.  Maintaining 6-foot social distancing from others is also required and visitors are asked to follow a one directional path through the Botanical Gardens and limit touch of all surfaces and plants.

Amenity restrictions included in Phase One will include but are not limited to: online, pre-purchased e-tickets will be required for the first two weeks of phase one and are recommended for the foreseeable future.  The following amenities will be closed during Phase One: the rear entrance; the Wegmans Family Garden, the Outdoor Children’s Garden, the drinking fountain (visitors are encouraged to bring their own water in a reusable container) and the Gift Shop will be closed for only week one. The following amenities will be unavailable in Phase One: wheelchair borrowing, audio tours and coat racks.  There will be limited indoor seating and congregating should be avoided.

Extra precautions include: partitions as a barrier between visitors and staff have been installed at the admission counters and in the Gift Shop; brochures and literature were removed from the admission areas to limit touching.  Every other sink and stall in the restrooms will be closed and some tables and chairs will be removed from inside the conservatory.  Only one entrance and exit, the front entrance, will be designated for public use and brightly colored markers will indicate safe social distancing when arriving at the admission desk.  Brightly colored markers were also installed to establish a set, one-way direction of foot traffic through the Botanical Gardens for visitors to follow. Signage was also installed to remind visitors of their Safety Etiquette Guidelines.

The leadership and staff at the Botanical Gardens is monitoring the situation closely and following the recommendations and guidelines set forth by New York State and the Center for Disease Control (CDC)They have also made a pledge to the Buffalo Cares: Stay Safe Pledge through Visit Buffalo Niagara.  It is a shared commitment between local hospitality and tourism organizations to take precautions to keep everyone stay safe.

The Botanical Gardens will continue to prioritize the safety of all visitors, staff, and volunteers throughout the reopening process and will continue to provide public updates as the situation changes.  More information regarding Phase Two and Phase Three of their plan can be found by clicking HERE

  • I TESTED POSITIVE FOR HSV-2 A FEW MONTHS AGO.
    At first, Yes, I was devastated thinking I have an incurable STD for life. After doing hours of research I quickly realized genital herpes is a filthy parasite that just likes to hide in your body. Yes, There’s no “medical cure” but that doesn’t mean your body can’t get rid of it. I literally flush it out of my system with the help of Doctor Azuka, A natural herbal medicine which I ordered after doing some research. And now I’m HSV-2 negative, I never believed it until my doctor finally gave me the test results and behold I was HSV-2 free. I’m so glad that I found you, Doctor Azuka. Thanks so much for your goodness I’m grateful. You can also get your help from him through his

  • My boyfriend left me for another girl for some silly reasons. He keeps telling me that I am nothing to him. He said he wants to be with the other girl. that he has no feeling for me anymore. This started more than one month ago. By this time he also speaks to me but not in his own mood or to rebuild our relationship. He does so because I request him to be with me at least for some hours or some minute… we talk only once …but I can’t stay without him. I want him back.. I was really worried and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex lover back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do, and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. Some hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he misses me so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me when he left. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Lord Zuma. he is so powerful and I decided to share my happiness on the internet that Lord Zuma is real. if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma now. Here’s his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647

  • I’m a Financial Advisor and I make $60,000 monthly in passive income without a blog, without investing on ads or building my authority on social media. It took me around 6 months to make consistent money (and not lose what I made).

    I will teach you how to trade and use a crypto trading platform that guarantees successful trades and help you stay protected and avoid losing money. Irrespective of the amount you wish to start with, Bitcoin and digital earnings have been established to be a very good means of generating passive income. You can get very rich investing in Crypto.

    If you are interested to know how I make so much money from crypto trading you can write me a message via WhatsApp+1 (512) 975 2877

    I am always here to help anyone that wants to pursue their dreams to be wealthy in this lifetime.

    Good Luck!
