2020 Bands by the Bay – Safe & Smart

Brittany ChaapelUncategorized

See how ABC Greater Baltimore is making this event safe & smart for staff and attendees*

The Venue:

  • The venue is COMPLETELY outdoors, with the exception of the restroom facilities.
  • The venue, which has capacity to host events at 2,500+ individuals is limiting attendance to just 500 individuals (though we anticipate closer to 250 for our event), so there is ample space for social distancing.
  • New plastic picnic tables have been purchased by the venue (easier and more sanitary than typical wooden picnic tables) and are limited to 6 individuals per table
  • All picnic tables will be placed 6 feet or further apart
  • Food service lines will be spread apart from beverage service lines and there will be signage marking 6 feet distances for those waiting in a line
  • All food/beverage service staff (ABC employees and Conrad employees) will be required to wear a mask

Event Precautions:

  • Masks are not mandatory for the entirety of the event, but we do ask that they are worn when using the restroom facilities and when in line for food or beverage
  • If you wish to wear a mask for the entirety of the event – please do so!
  • Masks will be provided for those that do not have one
  • An online waiver/questionnaire must be completed by all attendees prior to entry, asking questions about health and travel
  • Each individuals temperature will be checked at the door by a licensed nurse – anyone registering 100.4 or higher will not be admitted
  • Hand sanitizer spray bottles will be scattered around the venue for use by staff and attendees
  • For parties of 6 or more there will be tables designated to your groups
  • For groups of less than 6 we kindly ask that you choose a seat and keep that seat for the entirety of the event (obviously you are welcome to roam the facility, but please use the same seat for consumption of food and beverage)
