During the COVID pandemic, we've stayed remote from our co-workers, friends, and clients. As the world begins to open back up and we can gather again, there are some safety measures to consider as you host events.

The following are guidelines that several of our event hosts have implemented at their events - this is a personal consideration and we offer these as suggestions. Ultimately it is your call on the guidance you give for your event.

  • Ask guests for negative COVID tests taken 3-5 days before the event

  • Ask guests for proof of full vaccination

  • Screen temperatures at the entrance of event

  • Require guests to wear masks

  • Request that individuals do not share food or drink

  • Consider individually-packaged meals instead of buffets

  • Provide hand sanitizer on tables or throughout space

  • Limit alcohol consumption

  • Companies or organizations may consider waivers and social contracts for guests

If you have any questions, our team is happy to talk through the pros and cons of any of these approaches.
