COVID-19 Protocols

In accordance with the new NYS mask mandate effective 12/13/21:
For public classes TCS will require that all guests wear masks, in common areas. Unless you show proof of vaccination. 
Common areas are considered entry and exit through the winery tasting room and use of restrooms. 
Guests will be checked in and seated at cooking stations immediately.
As always masks DO NOT need to be worn while cooking, as stations are socially distanced. This is where you will spend almost all of your time. 
The rest of our Covid safety protocols remain the same: 
  • All cooking stations are socially distanced
  • All booking groups work independently
  • Nothing is shared between guests or instructors
  • All ingredients are pre-portioned, laid out and sealed
  • Staff is masked and gloved while setting up stations
  • Staff will still be masked during class regardless of vaccine status
  • Sanitizer and gloves are provided
  • Freshly laundered aprons and rags are provided
  • All contact surfaces, equipment and wares are cleaned and sanitized between classes
If anyone is unable or unwilling to follow the government’s rules please contact or 516.439.1355 for class credit to use when the mandate is relaxed. 
We truly appreciate your cooperation. 
Let’s get through this together, again.
