JULY 2020


CURRENT UPDATES-As of this writing on June 23rd, we are planning to open for inside service on Friday, June 26th, in accordance with the Governor's Phase 4 re-open plan. The plan states that businesses can open with a maximum of 50 people OR 50% of the businesses capacity, whichever is less. In our case that means we can have a maximum of 50 people inside the premises at any one time because fifty percent of our capacity is much greater than that. Our gaming room will also be open on Wednesday, July 1st, with Plexiglas screens dividing the machines. Hand sanitizer and face coverings will be available to anyone who wants them. Hopefully we can enter Phase 5 soon, which states that normal business operations can resume with safety guidance and procedures.
