Recently, the Central PA Chamber of Commerce has been asked how it’s been able to host in-person events, as recently as Dec. 4 with a Breakfast Briefing.
Since reopening its office in the beginning of June, the Central PA Chamber has requested all members and guests of its facility to follow all official state/federal guidelines related to COVID-19. This has continued through to the present time. For instance, face coverings are worn by guests, who are given the option to remove them while seated and eating breakfast, similar to how it works in a restaurant setting.
At the event, upon arrival there is hand sanitizer available not only at registration, but where the gathering occurs, too. Bathrooms are also conveniently located for hand washing.
In addition, breakfast is served by staff only, who are wearing masks and gloves the entire time they are around the food. Utensils are individually wrapped and only handled by the individual guests. In addition, the beverage area is located in a different room. This also helps avoid the chance of a line forming.
In “The Smith Training Center”, where the event is held, tables are spaced out to promote social distancing. Overall attendance at this event has been drastically reduced to keep with the state/federal COVID-19 guidelines.
Just recently, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), who regularly attends the Breakfast Briefings, made a comment after attending the most recent event.
“I enjoy the Breakfast Briefings that you and the staff hold regularly. It is so important and very difficult in this time of COVID to keep in touch and be able to market safely. I applaud your efforts and dedication to keeping all members and visitors who attend safe and protected. I find myself comfortable with the way you have set things up. “Thank you, again, for providing a safe environment for me to continue to network. I appreciate it!!!”
