How are we keeping you safe?
The Davis Conference Center (DCC) has implemented operational guidelines that must be followed in order to maintain the safety of our clients and employees. These guidelines are in accordance with the Davis County Health Department and CDC guidelines. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com
- Groups will be allowed to order buffets services, but all buffets will be served by DCC employees. DCC employees at the buffet stations will be wearing masks and gloves to ensure the health and safety of the guests and our employees. Any drink or snack break will also be served by a DCC employee.
- Groups need to follow the CDC guidelines when it comes to passing or giving things out at their event or meeting. Attendees cannot take things from the same basket or holders that people are constantly touching. Groups must have a plan to follow this guideline.
- We ask groups to encourage their attendees to social distance, wear face masks when inside the building or if they are not able to social distance, and frequent handwashing or use our hand sanitizer stations that are available throughout the DCC.
- The DCC will be provided an attendee list with the guest name and phone number of all those who will be attended the Expo, so if someone tests positive for COVID-19, the Davis County Health Department can contact those people that attended the event.
- The DCC has followed the Davis County Health Department and the CDC guidelines when setting up the Expo booths and room.
- The DCC will have signage and directional arrows on the floor throughout the facility, to help with social distancing. The DCC will also have designated entrance and exit doors.
- Groups cannot congregate in less than 6’ of social distancing at any time.
*These guidelines are in accordance with Utah “Moderate” and could change, according to the area transmission index that Davis County is currently in.
