Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
I wanted to reach out to all of our clients and those seeking information about the recent pandemic outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and how that is affecting the wedding, more specifically, Mountain View Photo Booth. Governor Brown of Oregon and Governor Inslee of Washington have issued an executive order and emergency proclamation on mitigating the impact and spread of COVID-19. At Mountain View Photo Booth (Mt. Hood Photo Booth), we take your health and safety seriously. Here are the steps we are/have taken to ensure safety with our events:
1) As Coronavirus has been declared by the World Heath Organization as a pandemic, it qualifies as a Force Majeure, "Act of God". In our contract/terms of conditions we have an "Act of God" or Force Majeure clause written in to the contract. What does this mean? If you have to cancel your event because of a Force Majeure, we will work with you. You are not out of money, and we will work to reschedule your event for you. Our timelines still apply, so check your terms/conditions. Events taking place within 30 days will receive full credit without losing the non-refundable deposit and we will work to reschedule those events with you at the appropriate time. Events taking place later than 30 days will receive a refund on their events but subject to the non-refundable deposit which can be applied to a new booking at the appropriate time.
2) Prop/Event safety: We will provide hand sanitizer, lysol, and sanitizing wipes during events. Guests using props will be asked to wipe down their props and signs prior to and after use of each prop. This will mitigate the spread of any germs during your photo booth experience.
3) Staff only touch screens. Our staff will be preset at most events (digital events notwithstanding). Our staff will be the only personnel to touch the touch screen. We will start the event, activate video messages, and enter e-mail addresses. For the protection and safety of all of your guests, and our staff, we will ask guests not to touch any touch screens, or shake hands with staff. We love meeting people and interacting with people, and overall have little concern about the health and safety of our events, but we want to be vigilant and make sure we are doing our part to mitigate the spread of this virus.
