This effort was coordinated at a time when Winterthur staff were off-site, not talking with each other like they normally would.
“So, it’s just nice to know that everybody sort of has that service mindset,” Nardone said. Winterthur was able to keep its outdoor areas open to the public as a place for people to enjoy some peace and quiet and practice social distancing – but only for a short time. Governor John Carney’s modified emergency order forced the trails to close as well.
Winterthur also was forced to cancel its beloved Point-to-Point steeplechase and tailgate festival, which was scheduled for the first Sunday of May. It had also recently opened an exhibition, “Re-Vision 20/20: Through a Woman’s Lens,” in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to The Constitution that earned women the right to vote.
