I love my staff and the community. Limiting our capacity to 50 people, and ignoring science and the recommendations of Dr. Anthony Fauci seems irresponsible.

It’s essential everyone takes precautions, not panic, and become educated about the virus. Here’s what we are doing.
- Staying healthy! If you’re not feeling well, being proactive and getting shifts covered is crucial. No one should come to work if they have flu-like symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath.
- Washing hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds and using alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands. Keep hands away from eyes, mouth, and nose.
- Clean, Clean, Clean. Bleach is our friend. Now more than ever, we need to be cautious of frequently touched surfaces such as countertops, doorknobs, sink/toilet handles, iPad/computer screens, tap handles, light switches, seats/benches, to name a few.
- We will plan to be open and operate per usual with the guidance of the CDC and the City of Portland.
- If the time comes that businesses such as ours are recommending to close; we will close until it’s safe to re-open.
- Do not panic. We should anticipate fear, anxiety, and the spreading of misinformation. I predict a decline in sales and tips over the next several months. It is not necessary at this time to encourage staying home (unless people are sick). Let’s continue to promote our events.
- Prepare yourselves at home for a minimum 2-week quarantine. Here’s a checklist of recommended essentials: https://www.syracuse.com/health/2020/02/coronavirus-checklist-is-your-home-ready-for-new-china-virus-quarantine.html
- Please consider subscribing to email updates from the CDC and Maine Center for Disease and Health. Let’s stay up-to-date and actively communicate.
