COVID Policy

Each host sets their own COVID policy. In addition to what we list on the web site, each host may limit the number of people in their house at any time. There is no possibility of social distancing in most model railroads. In many places you will be within inches of other visitors.

The layouts are organized by immunization and masking policies. The rules apply to the hosts as well as the visitors. They are arranged from most restrictive to least restrictive.

Please respect your host’s wishes as to how they want to deal with the COVID situation. A home owners right to decide who may enter their property supersedes pretty much all other rights. It is so fundamental, we don’t even have to think about it.

Immunization and Mask Required

Layouts listed under this section will require that visitors and hosts have both (or all) shots and that all visitors must wear masks. This means both shots have to have been received by November 12th. Unfortunately, due to when shots for children 5 to 11 were made available, children under the age of 12 are not fully immunized and do not meet this criteria.
