Safety Protocols

Due to the evolving nature of best practices, our policies will be reviewed regularly to follow the latest public health recommendations.

  • The event will have reduced capacity for attendance by approximately 50%.

  • Guests are strongly encouraged to wear masks while they are not actively eating and drinking. Masks will not be required as the St. Louis Department of Health mask directive expired on March 5 at 11:59 p.m.

  • Guests will not be required to show proof of vaccination or COVID-19 testing.

If you are not feeling well or are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home to keep our community safe.
