Covid-19 Safety Plan Private Event FAQ

Private Event Covid-19 Safety FAQ

How will this policy change effect the event I am attending?
When you arrive at the event you will be asked to show proof of vaccination or your negative test at the door before entering. Once you are inside, we hope you enjoy the night! 

Can my unvaccinated child attend the event?
Children under 12 that are not yet eligible for the vaccine may accompany a fully vaccinated adult. These children should wear a mask inside when not seated at a table. Unvaccinated children 12 and over will need to show proof of a recent negative test to enter the event. 

What counts as proof of vaccination?
Proof of vaccination includes the Excelsior Pass, a physical CDC issued vaccination card or a photo of a CDC issued vaccination card, in addition to a photo ID for verification. 

What do I need to show for proof of a negative covid test?
Unvaccinated guests can show a hard copy or electronic copy of their test results from the lab. This can include an email or screen shot of the results. If you are using an “at home” rapid test, we ask that you take a screen shot of the result and the instructions/guide so that we can interpret the result correctly. 

I am unvaccinated. How far before the event can or should I get my covid test? 

Unvaccinated guests must show a negative test result from a PCR test within 72 hours of the first onsite event or from a rapid test the day of the first onsite event. 

I am unvaccinated and invited to the rehearsal dinner. When should I take the covid test?
Unvaccinated guests must show a negative test result from a PCR test within 72 hours of the first onsite event or from a rapid test the day of the first onsite event. So if you are coming to the rehearsal dinner, the PCR test can be taken within 72 hours of the rehearsal dinner, not the wedding. If you are doing a rapid test, it should be completed the day of the rehearsal dinner, not the wedding. 

What happens if I take a covid test in the correct timeframe and it comes back positive?
Unfortunately, if your covid test comes back positive, we will not allow you to enter the event, even if you are asymptomatic. This is for the safety of all of the guests and our staff. 

Will I have to show proof of vaccination/negative test before all onsite events like the rehearsal dinner, wedding and after party?
No, we hope to streamline this process as much as possible! If you are attending a rehearsal dinner onsite, we will ask for proof of vaccination or negative test at that time. When you arrive at the wedding, you will only need to share your name to enter. If you are not attending a rehearsal dinner on our property, then we will ask for proof of vaccination or negative test upon arrival at the wedding. We will assume that all guests attending an after party or post-wedding brunch have already been screened and will not ask again for any documentation at those events. 

What happens if I forget to bring my vaccination card/proof of negative test with me to the event?
Only those guests that provide proof of vaccination or negative test will be allowed to enter the event, so please do not leave home without it. 

I received the first shot, but not the second in the 2 part Moderna or Pfizer vaccination series. Do I still need to show proof of a negative test?
Yes, you will need to show proof of a negative test if you are not fully vaccinated. An individual is considered “fully vaccinated” 14 days after receiving the second dose in a two-dose Covid-19 vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna) or a single dose Covid-19 vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson). 

I was vaccinated abroad and do not have a CDC issued vaccination card. What documentation can I show for proof of vaccination?
For those vaccinated outside of the US, an official record of one of the following vaccines is acceptable – Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca/SK Bioscience, Serum Institute of India/COVISHIELD, Vaxzevria, Sinopharm, Sinovac. 

I have a medical exemption for the vaccine from a doctor. Do I still need to show proof of a negative test?
Yes, you will need to show proof of a negative test if you are not fully vaccinated. An individual is considered “fully vaccinated” 14 days after receiving the second dose in a two-dose Covid-19 vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna) or a single dose Covid-19 vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson). 

I am not vaccinated but I had covid recently and have natural immunity. Do I still need to show proof of a negative test?
Yes, you will need to show proof of a negative test if you are not fully vaccinated. 

I am unvaccinated but had a recent negative test. Can I dine at The Roundhouse Restaurant?
Any unvaccinated guest invited to a private rehearsal dinner, after party or post- wedding brunch will need to show proof of a recent negative test in order to attend. Unvaccinated guests are not allowed to dine a la carte in the restaurant, patio or lounge outside of these planned events. Our regular patrons are expecting a fully vaccinated dining experience and we will not make any exceptions to this policy. 

Will guests or staff be required to wear masks?
We will continue to adhere to the NY State and CDC mask guidelines which state that fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask inside or outside. Unvaccinated children who are accompanying a vaccinated adult do not need to wear a mask outside but should continue to wear a mask inside, unless seated. Some of our fully-vaccinated staff members chose to continue to wear a mask for their safety. We will rely on each individual guest to do the right thing according to their vaccination status. 

What will happen when they lower the vaccination eligibility age?
We are anticipating the vaccination eligibility age to be lowered to 5 years old at some point this fall or early winter. Two months after the eligibility changes, we will update our policy so that adults and children 5 years old and over must show proof of vaccination or negative test to enter an event. 

I am staying overnight on the property – do I need to show proof of vaccination or negative test when arriving at the hotel?
No, the hotel is not requiring proof of vaccination or negative test at this time. 

I was notified by the host of the party I am attending that they are requiring me to take a covid test. Do I still have to do that if I am fully-vaccinated?
Some of our wedding clients are taking extra steps to ensure the safety of their guests, like requiring all guests regardless of vaccination status to take a covid-test prior to entering the event. If you have any specific questions about what was communicated to you, please ask the host of the event.
