We are committed to hosting your event in the safest way possible to protect our clients, guests and staff.
During your Event: We are limiting our staff’s access to the building during your event. We will communicate via walkie-talkie and only enter the building when necessary. As Stony Point Hall staff have the potential to interact with many guests per weekend, we feel it is safest for everyone involved to limit exposure as much as possible.
Cleaning Procedure Between Events: All commonly touched surfaces such as door handles, equipment, tables, chairs, bathroom facilities and floors are cleaned thoroughly with disinfectant. Back to back events will additionally be steam cleaned with our VX5000 industrial steamer, which has an operating temperature of 240~270 degrees.
Client Responsibilities: All client responsibilities remain unchanged with the exception of linens. We do request that you place all linens in the linen bags provided.
