The TD Ameritrade Park Omaha club level is capable of hosting private meetings, events and receptions in compliance with current state and local guidelines as mandated by the Nebraska’s Governor’s office and the Douglas County Health Department.
The information below addresses social distancing standards for the club level only, with the stadium to be addressed at a time when baseball games resume.
It maybe noted that similar, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended precautions have also been implemented at the CHI Health Center; this ensures a consistency of procedure and assurance of best health and safety practices at both MECA managed facilities.
Meeting and event room configurations on the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha club level will utilize social distancing guidance from the Nebraska Governor’s office. The number of guests seated at each table and within each room will be limited. Distancing at any food or beverage stations must be maintained. Additional staffing maybe necessary to help enforce social distancing guidelines.
Hand sanitizing dispensers are placed at guest and employee entrances as well as throughout the facility. Additionally, both visitors and staff members are outwardly encouraged to carry personal sanitizers.
As recommended by the CDC, public-facing TD Ameritrade Park Omaha event staff members are required to wear face masks and gloves, and guests are strongly encouraged to do the same. An event planner may choose to require face masks for their attendees. We understand this may present complications during consumption of food or beverage; however, masks are still encouraged as individuals move throughout the venue and interact with other visitors. This is subject to change based on state or county health directives.
Public-facing event staff members are required to wear personal protective equipment to include face masks and gloves and must use a designated entrance for contactless temperature screenings. If an employee is found to have a fever of 100 degrees or more, they will not be permitted to work.
Enhanced Cleaning & Sanitation
TD Ameritrade Park Omaha is staffing additional custodial crews before, during and after events who routinely use disinfectant for daily cleaning procedures. Cleaning solution with claimed effectiveness against coronavirus is in regular use throughout the building, and each room is methodically sanitized after use. Areas of frequent human contact (restrooms, hard surfaces, doorknobs) are cleaned multiple times a day.
Clorox Total 360
The state-of-the-art Clorox Total 360 system utilizes electrostatic technology and non-bleach Clorox products for an innovative surface treatment with the capability to clean even the hardest to reach places. According to Clorox, Total 360 is designed to target all surfaces within its reach. We utilize this cutting-edge technology for cleaning efforts throughout our facility.
There are reminders posted throughout the building to encourage social distancing, to avoid handshaking or touching one’s face.
Facility tours are currently unavailable.
