Coronavirus (COVID-19):

The Dragons Den is set to open on June 15th with the following guidelines which MUST BE FOLLOWED, NO EXCEPTIONS!

The Dragons Den Board of Directors and the Steering Committee requests that all meeting at the Den follow these guidelines:

  • Before starting a meeting the group chairperson will verify compliance with these meeting guidelines and be responsible for taking necessary action to assure continued compliance during the meeting.
  • Groups will manage (limit) physical attendance to no more than 12  in compliance with social distancing guidelines. 
    • If more than this number arrives, the group will move all, or some, of the attendees to the other meeting area, the deck, or the natural park area immediately south of the Den.  Only exception to using this park area will be mid-day Sunday’s or any other time the Church has an event in this park area.
  • Groups will insure chairs are not moved and “social distancing” guidelines are followed during meetings.
  • Groups will insure everyone in their meeting is wearing a face covering.
    • Anybody not wearing a face covering inside the Dragons Den will be told to leave.
  • No food or beverages will be consumed in the Den meeting areas.
  • Groups will adjust their meeting format to eliminate all direct personal contact between individuals.
  • Groups will insure that all meeting materials (coins, handouts, etc) are routinely sanitized.
  •  At the end of each meeting groups will ask each person before they leave to use a handy-wipe to sanitize the chair and table area where they sat for the next person.
