The Island is Open for Fun, Safe Entertainment

We are excited to welcome guests to The Island! The Island continues to follow county and state safety guidelines, taking proactive efforts to provide a safe and healthy environment for patrons and employees alike. Plan your visit today with dining, shopping and attraction options sure to please everyone in your group – and more coming soon! Below, we have included our safety guidelines to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep you safe during your visit.

The Island’s Approach to a Safer Shopping and Dining Experience

In an effort to continue slowing the spread of COVID-19, while also welcoming guests, we have implemented the following steps.

These steps include but are not limited to:

  • Increasing the frequency of sanitizing bathrooms and other public areas, including outdoor and indoor tables, benches, railings, door handles and knobs
  • Installation of additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the common areas

We have also asked our restaurant and retail tenants to assist in our efforts to provide our guests and their employees a safe environment. Below, we have included the steps we have asked our tenants to take. We also encourage guests to participate in these practices.

These steps include but are not limited to:

  • Follow the CDC guidelines and keep, at least, 6 feet apart
  • Please wash your hands thoroughly and often, especially before and after eating and using communal areas and activities. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/or use the hand sanitizing stations throughout The Island.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid contact with people who may be sick
  • Please review the helpful resources on the CDC’s website to educate yourself and your family, such as how to help limit the spread of germs and how to recognize symptoms
