Because you have an upcoming event scheduled we wanted to give you an update on what has taken place and what we currently see as the path forward together. We know these are difficult times for the event industry. In the midst of what may very well be the greatest public heath crisis of our lifetime, we are with you, and will work to make your next event in our venue the best it can be!
As most of you know we were designated by federal, state and local authorities as a health care facility in late March to lessen the burden on local hospitals. Our team and skilled trade partners constructed a large scale field hospital in just nine days that included 1000 beds, with negative air pressure and oxygen delivery to 650 of them. This project has become a model for the nation. To be clear, we are designated as a step down facility to assist in medical care for COVID-19 patients once they were ready to be moved from local hospitals. There are no ventilators here.
Social distancing requirements amid the COVID-19 pandemic have put a strain on the economy and social lives. For parents everywhere, keeping children entertained during a lockdown can have its challenges, and of course this is made all the more difficult If your child has a birthday coming up soon (spring babies), and you’ve probably had to cancel any party or gathering you were planning. And for your child, it probably feels like the end of the world. But just because we are practicing social distancing, doesn’t mean birthdays are cancelled.
