Visit Us Safely and Happily During Vail, Colorado COVID-19 Restrictions

Larkspur Restaurant Market Vail Colorado

Last year’s ongoing COVID restrictions and guidelines have unfortunately rolled into 2021, so we changed the way we’re doing business to adhere to all Vail, Colorado COVID restrictions here at Larkspur Events & Dining to keep our customers and staff safe. Not only is health and safety paramount to our operations, but your enjoyment of our exceptional dining and events is just as important. We’re striving to keep you celebrating and making special memories with us, but we’re also here to help you feel safe, secure and happy on our grounds. Please continue reading to see what precautions we’re taking and how you can still safely join us for your wedding, celebration, event or dining with us.

And some exciting news: all Eagle County restaurant workers will be able to start receiving the COVID-19 vaccine! Stay tuned for updates as we enter the next phase.

We’re Still Here for You

We’ve all been unwillingly thrust into a new world of changes and restrictions, and the events and restaurant industry has consequently been hit pretty hard to adapt and change the way it operates in our challenging new environment. However, we’ve never felt more committed and confident that your experience with us will be special. 

We’re here to accommodate your next visit with care. We’ve been following all the Eagle County Public Health and Environment (ECPHE) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. To communicate with our employees and guests, we’ve put together a COVID playbook that outlines our general safety practices for all those working in or visiting our venue. In this blog post, we’ll provide some highlights from our playbook so you can see the precautions that we’re taking.

Screen Staff Every Day

We screen our staff every day before a shift starts. Our safe practices for daily screening include:

  • Taking temperatures using a touchless forehead thermometer
  • Inquiring verbally about any symptoms

We document these temperatures and answers, and keep them in our records. 

Hand Sanitizing

Hand sanitizing is a key component of our overall health guidelines. 

  • We require employees to wash their hands regularly before and after using plastic gloves
  • We require employees to sanitize their hands every 30 minutes
  • We’ve added hand sanitizing stations throughout our venue
  • We require kitchen employees to use latex gloves when handling food

Face Coverings

Face coverings are required in public at this time.

  • We provide face coverings for our employees
  • We require guests to wear face coverings at all times when they’re not consuming food or beverages in our venue

Social Distancing

We follow social distancing protocols.

  • Employees must be 6 feet apart wherever possible
  • We’ve set up one-way paths whenever possible
  • We’ve added directional markings and yield signs for right of ways at bottleneck areas
  • We’ve implemented designated work stations for food prep and cooking, service stations, glass washing/polishing and dishwashing to minimize contact

Disinfecting and Cleaning Protocols

We’ve established stricter disinfecting and cleaning protocols within our venue.

  • We’ve Implemented a disinfecting schedule (using a mixture of peroxide and water) for bars, satellite bars, dining room, kitchen, restrooms, service stations, meeting/conference rooms and offices
  • Employees add a record in a log when when they disinfect

Contact Tracing

We’ve implemented contact tracing: guest contact lists are highly encouraged to be able to follow up with event attendees and participants.
