Winter closure of the Botanical Gardens and the coronavirus entry pass
Although the Botanical Gardens will be closed to the general public from 1 December 2021 to 1 March 2022, UU campus card holders (employees) will be able to continue to visit on weekdays throughout the winter months. Because the museum part of the Botanical Gardens is closed, it will continue to be a UU location that employees are able to visit without a coronavirus entry pass for the time being. However, they will be expected to follow the UU coronavirus protocol at all times.
