We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
As promised, this is a follow up to our update 2 weeks ago in regard to the impact on our industry, and our events, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Just yesterday, the governor unveiled his color-coded 3 phase plan for the re-opening of our state. It’s similar to a traffic light: red for stop, yellow for caution, and green for go.
What Does This Mean For Events?
We are currently in the “red” meaning no events at all. Although we are able to provide delivery.
Now that the governor extended the stay at home order until May 8, we suspect the we will not hit the “yellow”, allowing events of 25 or less, until that date or shortly after. Yellow allows for events of 25 and under, and deliveries.
When will we hit green?
NBC10 reported, “Wolf’s reopening plan said a region or county will need to average fewer than 50 new positive cases of the virus per 100,000 residents for 14 days in order to begin moving out from under his statewide lockdown.” Fourteen days from May 8 lands us on May 22.
Once we get the green light, our state will reopen and pandemic restrictions will be lifted, aside from federal or state health guidelines in place.
If you are moving your date, and your venue is not available, pleae be reassured that we partner with more than 20+ properties in Philadelphia and its suburbs. We also cater in private homes. We are here to help.
As we navigate this situation together, we know questions about how this will impact your special day will arise. We want to provide you with as much information as possible.
Please read our FAQs below as to how we are currently handling events through June and beyond.
We’ll get through this! We are in this together.
