     - temperature taking upon arrival (with a non-contact infrared thermometer)

     - disposable gloves will be provided to those who want them

     - facial masks are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED when not seated/eating at your table and will be provided, or you may bring your own.

     - Pine Lakes CC's 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 CC's 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
