As of June 3, 2021
Multnomah County has moved to the “Lower Risk” category for Oregon COVID guidelines. That means that we can host more people in our space and be a little bit more flexible on some rules in some cases.
In general, the move from “high” to “lower” risk categories means:
- Most indoor establishments can have 50% capacity
- Up to 8 people can sit together in groups or “pods”
- More able to work in-person in offices
Currently, we can host up to 22 people in our space! Although we are in the office more often now, we are still open by appointment only for meetings, photo/video shoots, and events. Contact us here for scheduling and check our site for event space and conference room rates.
After taking the Multnomah County Health Department into consideration, we have chosen to require masks in our space for any event where there are people present who are not fully vaccinated. The default rule for our space is that everyone needs to wear a mask. However, if you are interested in using our space for a fully-vaccinated, mask-less event, please contact us to discuss the option.
For the present time, 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.
This definitely feels like a massive turning point in the pandemic. We can’t wait to see you all 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, 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 and depending on customer preference.
All guests and employees must wear a mask at all times. There are some exceptions, such as during professional photo/video shoots, video conferencing, or while eating/drinking. If you are interested in exploring a mask-free, fully-vaccinated event, please contact us to discuss the option.
All guests and employees must maintain a distance of 6 feet as much as possible. Exceptions should only be made when absolutely necessary. For certain types of social gatherings, we will work with you to make sure that people are able to sit in groups of 6-8 people that do not have to be social distanced. The groups must stay 6 feet apart from each other.
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.
