As of February 11, 2021
As many of you already are aware, on February 12, 2021, Multnomah County’s COVID risk will be downgraded from “Extreme” to the “High” risk category. That’s still not great, but it does feel like good news and a small ray of hope.
What does this mean in terms of what we all can and can’t do? The move from “extreme” to “high” risk categories means:
- Indoor recreation and entertainment is allowed at limited capacity
- In-person meetings and work is allowed if necessary
- Indoor dining is allowed at limited capacity
As through most of the pandemic, we are currently open by appointment for meetings and photo/video shoots, and now we can also host limited-sized social gatherings. If you need to meet with a client or small group in person, we would love to host you in our private, controlled environment. Contact us here for scheduling and check our site for event space and conference room rates.
We continue to work with clients on a case-by-case basis depending on the details of your needs and do our best to accommodate requests as safely as possible.
We also anticipate that most people in most circumstances will continue to meet and attend events online for the foreseeable future. Our own programs continue to be virtual and you can find out more about them here. For those wanting to put on their own online events and programs, we provide access to quality web cams, microphones, lighting, and other equipment, as well as online event management services. Contact us directly for a custom quote.
Please stay safe as we (hopefully) are seeing the beginning of the end of this pandemic. We truly miss all of our clients and wonderful community and hope to see you again soon.
The health and safety of all guests and staff are extremely important to us, and we have spent a great deal of effort pouring over all the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control as well as the Oregon Health Authority. If you have any questions or concerns about our policies, please contact us, and we’d be happy to address them.
We disinfect our space before and between rentals using CDC-approved cleaners. That means that we clean and disinfect any surface that a guest is likely to come into contact with, such as door handles, light switches, tables, chairs, counters, appliances, sinks, restroom surfaces, and cabinets. Our space has an internal fan system, as well as a fan in the restroom that is kept on at all times. We keep our front doors open whenever possible (although not so much in the winter!).
Masks are required in our space at all times with the exception of individuals who are being photographed/video recorded or are making video calls. Guests must stay 6 feet apart at all times except when it is impossible to avoid. No one is allowed to gather near the restroom or front door, for example, or to sit less than 6 feet apart.
We require staff to stay home with pay if they have COVID-19 symptoms. We also require our guests to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms.
**Note that we realize guests using the space for video shoots may need the front door to be closed and bathroom fan turned off at times. Please contact us regarding these issues and we will do our absolute best to accommodate in a safe way.
