This includes maintaining 6’ social distancing, sanitation stations, and wellness questionnaires of each guest in attendance, including vendors. We require mask-wearing on the property at all times when not eating or drinking.

Within 14 days of your visit to The 228 in Sterling, we ask that you print out, complete, and bring our wellness questionnaire with you.

We will have extras in case you forget, but it will slow your arrival. The 228 also requires (ahead of the event date) for the party host to provide to the facility a guest list of all attendees for contact tracing.
