COVID-19 Precautions FAQ:
Will the event be held in person?
Yes! We’re looking forward to being together in person again and are making informed decisions regarding safety at the 2021 Wine Tasting Fundraiser based on San Bernardino County mandates and guidance from the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health. We’re monitoring the course of the pandemic very closely and will inform Lampkin Foundation supporters in the event that we need to make any changes to our in-person plans.
Will proof of vaccination be required?
NO. However, the Lampkin Foundation believes vaccinations are the best means of reducing the impact of COVID-19, so we are encouraging all attendees to voluntarily show proof of vaccination before joining the in-person event. Everyone is encouraged to wear a mask while walking about the indoor portions of the event location (ie: walking to the indoor restroom). Mask will also be provided at the event. Temperature screening will take place at the venue entrance. If you feel sick, stay home! Be kind and respectful to everyone around you.
Will social distancing be possible?
Yes! This is an outdoor event. Our healthcare workers at Care Staffing Professionals have been incredibly helpful in working with us to provide ample space and ventilation of air for guests. Guests will be able to mingle across the entire first floor, which is reserved exclusively for the event. If you feel sick, stay home! Be kind and respectful to everyone around you.
Will masks be required?
Yes. Particularly, while walking about the indoor portions of the event location. While the event will be taking place outdoors, restrooms are located indoors. We ask that guests carry a mask at all times. If you feel sick, stay home! Be kind and respectful to everyone around you.
What precautions are there around the food?
All Appetizers will be served as individual servings, including the charcuterie. There will be no need for sharing serving spoons or tongs. We are asking guests to only visit other tables with an invitation to do so. If your group would prefer to keep more to yourselves, you can do that as well. Wait staff will be wearing masks for the entire service. Salads will be pre-set and the wine will only be poured by the sommelier.
What if I don’t feel comfortable being there in person?
No problem! We understand your reluctance and still appreciate your support. Although we will sorely miss you, we’re happy to be able to accommodate all levels of comfort with in-person gatherings.
We hope to see you on Sunday, November 7, 2021. Don’t forget to purchase your tickets!
