Even as our communities relax outside our walls, we cannot give up our commitment and vigilance to prevent the spread of the virus. Therefore, we ask everyone who participates in our active adult program to adhere to social distancing guidelines by only sitting 3 at a table and wearing their masks except when they are at their table, having fun. eat or drink. All EBSC staff have been vaccinated and we hope that all of our participants have also been vaccinated. If you have not been vaccinated, we ask that you wear your mask at all times for the consideration and safety of your fellow program participants.
Tables and chairs will be set up and disinfected each morning. Masks will be available for anyone who needs them. The bathroom will be disinfected every hour. We will cap the maximum capacity at 30 people per day.
