Hello Arch Halo Friends, Family and Krewe,
You are the core of everything we do. As I am sure you’re aware, the World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. Our top priority is keeping our community safe as we continue to closely monitor the situation. St. Louis county has temporarily banned any event over 250 people. While we do not expect this to affect The St. Louis Vampire Ball, we are closely monitoring the situation with regards to The Awakening: Darkness Descends. That being said, here’s our plan.
The St. Louis Vampire Ball will continue as scheduled.
The Awakening: Darkness Descends will continue as it stands right now, however, we will be watching closely to monitor the situation in the coming weeks. Should the ban remain in effect, or we feel it necessary to protect the health and safety of our community, we will post-pone The Awakening. Stay connected for updates related to this we will be releasing in the coming weeks.
Our partners, sponsors, venues and board are committed to helping ensure your health and safety during these troublesome times.
* We are working with all our venue partners to ensure they have the necessary supply of disinfectant materials and hand sanitizer to frequently clean high-touch surfaces to kill germs and ensure they are a safe environment for our community.
* Everyone is asked to stay home if they are sick and are experiencing any flu-like symptoms related to COVID-19, no matter how mild, and until they have been cleared by a medical professional.
* We want to remind everyone to consult the CDC for COVID-19 symptom information and request that you follow recommended self-quarantine guidelines if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, no matter how mild.
We are all in this together. That’s what makes our community strong and special! Thank you for your understanding during these troublesome times. It’s our commitment to you that we will ensure you have a safe environment, and The St. Louis Vampire Ball will just have to be that much more awesome!
Love, Loyalty, Honor and Respect,
The Arch Halo Vampire Krewe
