Follow staff directionsFollow staff/volunteer guidance

Please follow directions from staff members/volunteers, and thank you for your patience as protocols have continued to change based on CDC guidelines.


Safety Tip: Listen to sound advice. In conducting his council of war, Union Major General George Meade consulted with his commanders and staff in making a decision whether to stay and fight at Gettysburg. We ask that you also listen to our staff and volunteers and follow their advice. It's a winning proposition.
