The Richmond Hill City Center reopened last week for events and lunches, strictly adhering to the new guidelines announced by Gov. Brian Kemp. City Center officials celebrated the occasion with a ceremonial ribbon cutting June 2.

The City Center closed in mid-March as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the nation. The City of  Richmond Hill owns the City Center building and the Wilderman Group manages the property.

“We are excited to open our doors and return to offering our patrons great food and service,” Kevin Nape, general manager of the Richmond Hill City Center, said. “We hope that the community will support us and want everybody to know that we take the health and safety of our employees and customers very seriously.

We will be taking every step possible to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and appropriate social distancing.”

The City Center is reintroducing its $10 lunches every Tuesday and Friday, with customers offered a choice of a plated meal as all buffets have been suspended for the foreseeable future. Staff is being screened for illness and wear masks, regularly sanitize all common areas and restrooms and wash their hands frequently. In addition, hand sanitizer will be available for the use of patrons.

In line with public health advice, there will be at least 6 feet between groups of diners and each group must not exceed six people.

Special events for private groups, such as small weddings or parties, are now allowed as long as they are for no more than 25 people or 35 percent of the total building occupancy, with social distancing protocols in place.
