     - Pine Lakes staff will serve food to guests in a buffet line in appropriate safety attire and avoid shared food or drink containers at the tables

     - Pine Lakes staff will sanitize facilities, high touch points, restrooms, etc. and hand sanitizer stations will be available.

     - Seating will also be set at a social distance
