Dec 7th – In Compliance with Mandatory Stay-At-Home-Order
As I’m sure you’ve heard, the State has ordered a mandatory Stay-at-Home-Order for Orange County. This means, beginning Dec 7, 2020, Sunsets Capo Beach, Waterman’s Harbor and StillWater Spirits & Sounds will temporarily close.
This was not the news we wanted to hear, but after evaluating our options, we determined it was in the best interest of our employees to temporarily close. By taking this step now, we can do our part to limit the impact of the Covid-19 virus on our community.
We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when we can resume normal operations and get back to what we do best – providing a place for people to gather and enjoy good food and drinks.
We will miss you and look forward to seeing you again soon!
What we’re doing to keep you safe
Because we take the health and safety of our guests and staff seriously we have gone above and beyond federal, state and local social-distancing requirements. We have increased our cleaning protocols and require all staff to wear masks.
First, we have rearranged the seating/tables so they are 6 feet apart and are limiting the number of guests.
We have retained a special cleaning crew to bio-sanitize the entire facility and has certified the restaurant is virus free (including Covid, Flu and other common viruses).
Finally, we purchased UV lights, Infrared Body Temperature Scanners and Rapid Results Covid Tests to further protect our guests and employees.
In compliance with state, local, CDC and ABC requirements, we will continue the following social distancing protocols:
- Everyone entering will have their temperature taken with an infrared body temperature scanner
- All staff will wear masks and gloves (guests must wear masks when not eating/seated)
- All staff to be regularly tested for Covid-19
- All tables and chairs cleaned and sanitized between guests with CDC approved disinfectant
- Surfaces sanitized with UV lights
- Dining limited to our patios
- Seating at bars is temporarily prohibited (ABC requirement)
- All tables placed 6ft+ apart
- Tables limited to 8 guests
- Sanitation stations strategically placed around the restaurant
- Bathrooms cleaned every 30 minutes
- One time use/online menus will be utilized
- Restaurant deep cleaned between shifts
As we navigate through these unusual times, we appreciate your continued support!
