Coming to DDL?

Please Follow These Guidelines

  1. We need to know you are coming.
    Before you come, please RSVP to a specific event, or call our main number (902.657-9085) and leave a message at least a day before. Or you may text the Director’s mobile phone 919.259.5451. She will call you back to make a plan for coming to the land.
  2. You need to be healthy and without symptoms.
    Please monitor your health before you come. If you have any symptoms of illness, we ask that you stay home.
  3. Please do not enter the main building: it is reserved for our “staff bubble.”
    When you arrive, we will direct you to the location of the event. The main building, which includes our shrine room and dining room, is for staff use only at this time. Other restrooms will be made available for use.
  4. Please bring your face mask if you are in a high risk group.
    Just in case. Depending on what you are doing, you be the judge of whether you need to wear it or not. Better safe than sorry.
  5. Don’t forget to wash or sanitize your hands a lot, and cover all coughs and sneezes using the inside of your elbow or a tissue.
  6. At all times, maintain the physical distance of 2 meters between you and others who are not in your household.
