Health and Safety Precautions for the 2022 Ohio Barn Conference

After a two-year delay, Friends of Ohio Barns looks forward to welcoming guests from throughout the state to Preble County in April. Our love for old barns certainly hasn’t wavered, but plenty has changed when it comes to holding a large, in-person event since the last time we gathered!  Here are some of the things we’ll be doing to keep the health and safety of our attendees a top priority:

  1. Because of the close proximity of participants, masks will be strongly encouraged during Thursday’s covered bridge tour and Friday’s bus tour. There is only so much we can spread out in these situations, so please, use your best judgement! 

  2. Hand-sanitizer will be widely available during the tours and Saturday’s conference, particularly during meal times.  

  3. Plenty of disposable masks will be available for participants during Friday and Saturday’s activities. If you want to mask up, we’ve got you covered. 

  4. Most importantly, as much as we want to see you, if you’re sick, please stay home! We will be happy to work with you if a last minute illness or COVID diagnosis puts a wrench in your plans. 

Let’s have a great time, and do what we can to keep everyone healthy. See you in Preble County!
