As Marco Experiences expands to launch in-person experiences, it is important for us to all act responsibly and in the best interest of each other’s health and safety. With that in mind, we’ve created a set of guidelines for Hosts and Attendees, following guidance from experts and to adhere to federal and local regulations.
Although Marco Experiences has introduced these guidelines, these measures cannot eliminate all risk. If you are in a high risk category (i.e. people over the age of 65 or people with pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease), we recommend obtaining professional guidance and taking extra precautions when making the decision to host or attend a Marco Experience.
Safety Requirements for Hosts and Attendees
Wear a mask and practice social distancing when required by local government laws or mandates.
- Comply with vaccination orders or practices when required by local government laws or mandates.
- Comply with capacity limits when required by local government laws or mandates.
- Don’t travel, host or participate if you’ve recently been exposed to or have symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Hosts should not host or participate in any upcoming experiences, and Attendees should not attend an experience if any of the following are true:
- You are actively infected or have tested positive with COVID-19 within the last 30 days.
- You suspect you are sick or have been exposed and are awaiting test results to confirm or deny a diagnosis of COVID-19.
- You are showing symptoms or are concerned about possible infection of COVID-19.
- You’ve had close, sustained contact with an individual confirmed or suspected to be infected with COVID-19, within the last 14 days.
- You’ve received a positive test result from on-site testing.
Recommended Experience Modifications
To comply with health and safety guidelines, you may need to modify both your experience and your space. Here are some things to consider:
- Physical Contact: Change your activity to avoid unnecessary physical contact among Attendees and between Host(s) and Attendees.
- Hygiene: Provide ample opportunities for participants to wash their hands during the experience, and bring extra hand sanitizer. Sanitize equipment between guests, both during and between experiences.
- Consider limiting access to only the necessary spaces in order to avoid unnecessary exposure for you and your guests and decrease the amount of space needed to be cleaned and sanitized afterwards.
- Consider moving your experience to an outdoor space.
- Be sure to check local advisories and public health recommendations from time to time to ensure that you're compliant.
- Food & Drink:
- If your experience involves eating or drinking, ensure that participants practice social distancing when consuming the food or drink.
- Whenever possible, guests should consume food/drinks outdoor or through take-home options to reduce risk.
- Avoid offering any self-serve food or drink options. Opt for individual, plated services instead of family-style dining and buffets.
- Use disposable food service items including utensils and dishes. If not feasible, ensure that non-disposable food service items are handled with gloves and washed with dish soap and hot water or in a dishwasher.
- Ventilation: If hosting indoors, ensure that ventilation systems operate properly and increase the circulation of outdoor air as much as possible by opening windows and doors.
What To Do If You’ve Tested Positive for COVID-19
- Consider informing anyone who may have been impacted or potentially exposed, in addition to relevant local authorities.
- If an Attendee reaches out after you have hosted them telling you they either have tested positive for COVID-19 or have come into contact with someone who tested positive, please direct them to contact us.
