There have been no changes in the directives by the Ohio Department of Health for the safe operation of banquet facilities in Ohio in the past couple of months, even though there have been changes to almost everything else. currently we are able to host parties with as many as 300 guests, and more importantly we are able to have dance floors open!
As of July 31st we are not able to serve alcohol after 10 pm. Guests are able to get several drinks before 10 pm. and continue to drink and dance. We are currently making last call announcements at 9:50 and encouraging guests to stay and have fun through the end of the party.
Governor Dewine has ordered that all people, who are not exempt, wear face coverings in public facilities. After speaking with local health officials, determining that we can not both enforce the mask rule and fall within the ADA, and seeing many instances of violence around the nation when face covering mandates are enforced by businesses, we have decided for the safety of our employees we will not approach, talk to, or remove patrons for failure to wear face masks. Any enforcement of mandatory mask rules will fall to the parties that have rented the Norlyn Manor. All Norlyn Manor employees will continue to wear face coverings, gloves and increase surface cleaning frequency as mandated by the local health department.
Currently the only remaining restrictions on guests is that they consume all food and drink at the tables, which can seat no more than 10 guests per table, and maintain social distancing. It is also strongly recommended that people who are vulnerable as a result of illness take additional precautions as recommended by the CDC.
We are able able to give tours in person. If you would like to schedule a tour please click here. If you would prefer to take a virtual tour, we will continue to offer those as well.
Thank you for your interest in the Norlyn Manor and please stay safe during these difficult times. We are thrilled to once again provide you with the best location, food, and service in the industry.
