Interim Guidance Reopen Plan for SKY Armory Revised June 1, 2020


Our original Reopen Plan was received with much interest from the press and other venues but failed to persuade the Central New York Regional Control Room (Advisory Board). In our effort to design a plan that would provide our clients an experience that would be consistent your expectations and vision, our plan had minimal social distancing requirements. Our revised plan has increased social distancing requirements that will be typical of a restaurant environment. Our revised plan is consistent with CDC and NYS guidelines.


We expect to be in Phase 3 in Central New York sometime in June at which time SKY Armory will officially open, because by definition, SKY Armory is a Phase 3 entity. Most of our Reopen Plan requirements happen outside the guest experience. The most obvious difference that will affect your guest’s experience is the presence of a face masks on our staff and your guest in situations when we cannot assure social distancing. Our plan indicates that the guest will wear a mask during the ceremony and during dancing. Our plan also indicates we can maintain social distancing during the cocktail hour and dinner service. Our plan does not have a mechanism for ensuring compliance or reporting, given that the average reception is about 135 people. For example, if Aunt Grace chooses not to wear a mask on the dance floor, we do not have a mechanism to prohibit or address her action. We simple ask that our clients who choose to have their reception at SKY Armory during the pandemic to partner with SKY Armory in good faith and compliance.


Our confidence is growing daily that we will be open soon in June. However at this point we have absolutely no information on when social distancing requirements will be relaxed. Specifically, when the masks can come off for people in close proximity. We suspect that after Phase 3 opens up this will become part of the community discussion.


Here is the complete Interm Guidance Reopen Plan (Revised)

  2.  If you are greater than 70 days of your reception and if you have made your 90 Day Progress Payment, you may move your date without any additional progress payments. If your 90 Progress Payment has not been made, you can move your date by making a reduced progress payment of $5,000 or 50% of your 90 Day Progress payment, whichever is less.
