Dear THE LOT Customers,
Amidst growing concerns about the Coronavirus disease and news of its spread, we aim to maintain a fluid communication with our customer base. In our communication earlier this week, we alerted you to the steps we have taken to minimize to the extent possible exposure to and spread of infection at THE LOT. To supplement that communication, we want to alert you to the added precautionary measures that we have implemented at THE LOT, due to the current dynamic situation. Following are alterations we are making to our operating procedures, in order to prioritize our guests and employees’ health and well-being while providing you with the best out of home experience possible.
By the nature of our product and design, our venues feature an intimate environment and avoids large crowds.
Considering the California health official’s mandate for public gatherings, we are taking steps to reduce the seating occupancy in our auditoriums to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
We are working to reduce our seat count to no more than 50% of seats available per auditorium, as well as implementing staggered seating procedures. While we encourage maintaining social distance in our auditoriums, we will not prevent families and friends from sitting next to each other.
Along with this initiative, we will be focusing our resources towards providing a safer and cleaner setting; therefore we will be modifying our store hours, showtimes, as well as suspending our weekly Sunday Brunch and Taco Tuesday events.
As we learn more about this virus, we are prepared to further modify operations on a store-by-store-basis to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees. Although we remain hopeful that the situation will be controlled, we are closely monitoring new developments and are prepared to suspend operations if we feel this will further enhance the safety and health of our guests and employees.
As we navigate this ongoing situation, our management is taking guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local authorities. Following their guidance, we respectfully ask that if you are sick or feeling under the weather you consider staying home. For those of you able to join us, we encourage you wash your hands frequently with soap and take precautions as necessary.
For now, we continue to operate all our locations as we strive to offer our guests a safe and secure setting to enjoy with these enhanced procedures in place, to help curtail the spread of COVID-19. We thank you for your continued support, and we will continue to keep you informed as we take action.
