Being a small event space in the time of social distancing is a unique challenge. Our business depends on our ability to allow folks to gather, but we owe it to our community, staff, and renters to make responsible public health decisions. We do not take the COVID-19 pandemic lightly and are closely following the guidelines from state and federal health officials.

That said, we know our current and future renters need to plan ahead for the summer. With the lifting of stay at home orders in Cumberland County as of Friday (5/22), we are pleased to offer the following guidance regarding summer rentals at The Event Café. These guidelines will be effective through at least July 31st, 2020.

  • Starting June 1st, the Event Café will be open for rentals of 25 guests or fewer.

  • To account for the size restrictions on events, we are offering, free of charge, the technology to allow virtual attendees. The Event Café will set you up with a Zoom meeting room for unlimited guests, that can be viewed on the 60” TV in the Griffin Boardroom, and will set up a camera so your virtual attendees can view the festivities. We will also provide a recording of the Zoom session.

  • To allow ample space for our renters during this period, for the cost of the Sullivan Reception Hall, all rentals will include the Sullivan Reception Hall, Griffin Boardroom, kitchen and lounge areas.

  • Masks are required at all times in The Event Café. Please ensure your guests are aware of our mask policy in advance. The Event Café will not provide masks for all renters and guests, though limited amounts may be available in case of emergencies.

  • The Event Café will provide hand sanitizer and disinfecting products and asks that renters use these products liberally.

  • Please review CDC guidelines for events prior to your gathering. You can view these recommendations by clicking here.

  • We recommend advising guests at elevated risk of severe illness from COVID-19 to stay home and attend your event virtually. This includes individuals ages 65 or older and individuals with underlying medical conditions. View more guidance on at-risk populations by clicking here.

  • Guests who are ill should not attend events at The Event Cafe. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, shortness of breath and cough, but those who feel sick in any way are discouraged from attending events at The Event Café and should be asked to participate virtually.

  • The Event Café will be spacing out event rentals to allow ample time for staff to clean and sanitize our space. We are following CDC sanitation guidelines which can be referenced by clicking here.
