IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE VCC EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ON 03/12/2020
Dear VCC Attendees:
Your health, welfare and safety are vitally important when you visit the VCC. Noting that the news is dominated by Coronavirus, I wanted to personally reach out and let you know that the VCC Team has implemented an increased meeting room and common area cleaning protocol and process. Our first concern is always to offer a healthy and safe environment for our guests.
We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we meet our guests’ needs while doing our part to keep you, our guests, and our communities safe.
Steps being taken to accomplish this include:
Thorough cleaning of event spaces prior to each event.
Placing hand sanitizer dispensers in lobbies and outside meeting areas.
Increasing the frequency of ongoing disinfecting of surfaces that patrons come into contract with, especially door knobs, hand rails, water fountains, concession stand and bar counters, and restroom fixtures. (Preferred cleaning products have one minute kill time for virus and bacteria contaminants.)
Increasing frequency of cleaning and sterilization of kitchen and food prep areas, including equipment, utensils, surfaces and counter tops..
In addition, we are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our team.
If they are not feeling well or an immediate family member is not feeling well, we ask that they stay home to avoid passing it to others.
Keep their hands clean and wash their hands properly. We ask that they use hand sanitizer whenever possible.
Regularly wiping down and sanitizing their workspace.
Maintain a healthy lifestyle (proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep their immune system strong.
Importantly, if they have flu-like symptoms, they are advised to consult a doctor and seek medical care.
If you have booked an event/meeting, we will protect your current status and will also make other date arrangements, if necessary, upon your request. We understand your travels may be interrupted by COVID-19 through no fault of yours. You are our loyal customer and we appreciate your business.
We look forward to seeing you and want to reassure you that we are taking every reasonable precaution to promote a safe and healthy environment.
