Don't worry, because Santa and Danbury Fair have a plan to keep everyone safe by following CDC guidelines on cleaning and social distancing. Danbury Fair has installed hospital-grade air filtration as part of its HVAC system. Intensified cleaning has been put into place, along with constant employee wellness checks. There will be plenty of hands sanitizing stations along with markers and signs to ensure proper social distancing.

What can you expect during your visit to Santa? First and foremost, you should know the Big Guy and his team will be wearing masks. Masks are also required by all guests ages 2 and above. There will be no exceptions.

Hand sanitizer will be available upon entering and exiting, and social distancing will be followed between Santa and guests at all times. To make reservations to meet with Santa and have it captured on film, click on danburyfairmall.com/SantaPhotos.
