We so look forward to meeting in person and multiple steps are being taken to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the coronavirus. AFPNEO wants to remain vigilant to address health-related developments, including securing a venue that monitors the ever-changing guidelines set by the CDC, State of Ohio, Portage County, and NEOMED related to Covid-19 safe practices. 

The NEW Center has enacted the following measures:

  • Reduced capacity in our ballrooms, meetings rooms, Board Room, and our open atrium spaces
  • Created “House Rules” for event organizers to share with their attendees. (Please click here for House Rules)
  • Physical distancing practices in all event spaces, restrooms, dining spaces, and food service areas
  • Choice of staff-served buffets eliminating high contact interactions, or per current, guidelines self-serve may occur
  • Safety protocols through proper facial coverings, gloves, and hand sanitizing stations
  • Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of event space before, during, and after events
  • HEPA filtration in the ballrooms for weekend events
  • Zoom capabilities in our Grand Ballroom, Conference Rooms, and Board Rooms for virtual hybrid participation
