COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
We understand that COVID-19 virus has impacted Mississippi. However, Natchez has little impact and none at the Natchez Convention Center. At the Natchez Convention Center we are committed to making the required adjustments and to follow the guidelines and protocol set forth by the CDC and WHO in regards to cleaning and hygiene. Keeping our guests and staff healthy is of the utmost importance, while we continue to offer exceptional service and hospitality.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting the common areas, with special detail given to high touch areas. These areas include but are not limited to: lobby/pre-function area, hallways and handrails, elevators, bathrooms, vending machine area, and all door handles throughout the convention center. In addition, there will be controlled access at all exterior doors to the convention center. Notices will be placed throughout the Natchez Convention Center reminding individuals to practice social distancing, limit the number of individuals inside the elevators to 2 (unless the riders are of the same family). We are also asking that our guests bring face masks to wear while inside the convention center.
We clean all meeting rooms following the disinfecting guidelines that the CDC recommends. This is done after each meeting ends, before a new meeting begins, as well as throughout the duration of the meeting. Special detail is given to high touch areas within the meeting space such as tables and chairs, as well as all door knobs in and out of the meeting space.
Back of House:
We understand that our employees working in the back of the house might not have interaction with guests directly. However, valuing their health as well, we have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting all work areas. These areas include the kitchen, storage room, corridors, and staff offices, with special attention to high touch areas.
Employees’ health is a priority. With that in mind, all staff members will undergo daily temperature readings along with a brief questionnaire. All staff will wear masks, gloves, and be encouraged to maintain social distancing while performing their daily jobs. Proper handwashing technique is imperative to combat viruses. Staff is reminded that proper handwashing will not only benefit their health, but also the health of those around them, including our guests.
Rest assured that we are committed to continuing the exceptional service that the Natchez Convention Center has always provided. It does not matter if you are planning or attending a meeting soon or in the future, we are waiting to welcome you.
