Historic Ashland Couples:
We understand that you, your family, and wedding guests may be concerned with the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). At Historic Ashland, our main priority has and always will be the safety of our clients, guests, staff, and vendors. As we continue to monitor the situation, we wanted to assure all of you that Historic Ashland is taking every precaution we can to combat the Coronavirus. We have your back and have made it our priority to stock up on disinfectant, toilet paper, hand sanitize, soap, etc. The Venue is cleaned after every event with commercial-grade disinfectants and we will continue to practice every precaution necessary when it comes to this virus to protect our Historic Ashland family. Although the immediate threat is low, we recognize the the need to potentially limit large, indoor gatherings. At this time, we are working to be as flexible as possible in regards to your event and will continue to update you as we learn more information.
In response to all of this, we are asking all patrons of Historic Ashland to please follow these guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) when visiting our property:
- Clean your hands often– Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Please stay home if you or a family member are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
- Please avoid shaking hands, kissing or hugging others.
We are here for you all and this will be OK. We know that many of our clients will be traveling to Historic Ashland over the next few weeks for final walk-through meetings, so please know that we are more than willing to video chat should you be unable to travel. We will continue to be flexible as the situation allows in regards to tours, meetings, etc, but, if you are getting married in the next 6 weeks, please feel free to give our team a call and we will talk through with you on how we are going to help you through this.
As always, please contact Leah Nadu with any questions or concerns.
