(Update 26.7.2021)

HUONE Jätkäsaari and Kamppi are open. We continue maintaining the safety measurements mentioned below. Until further notice, both units will close 12pm and alcohol sales will end 11.30m.  The number of customer seats will be limited according to the regional state administrative agency. 

We ask our customers for understanding and to follow the provided recommendations to enable everyone to meet safely. HUONE’s cancellation policy applies as long as our business activities are not restricted by law or regulations.

We are following the below mentioned safety measures according to the phases of COVID-19 epidemic according to Finnish government:

1. Stable level

To ensure the highest hygiene of our spaces, common spaces such as toilets, lounge spaces are cleaned and monitored on a regular basis.

Handwashing and sanitisers

HUONE offers hand sanitiser upon guests arrival for safer meetings. We encourage guests to wash their hands with soap and water. The signages promoting good hand hygiene are visible around the venue. Hand sanitisers are available in every room as well as all the common areas. 

2. Acceleration phase

We recommend using face masks

Throughout any working day, our employees wear masks for safer meetings. We also encourage our guests to use a face mask during the event. Face masks for guests are also available at the reception.

3. Community transmission phase

 

Private dining, instead of a buffet, for safer meetings

Instead of a buffet, meals are served in individual portions. Both HUONE Kamppi and Jätkäsaari have their own kitchen which means, fewer people handling food(compared to venues with catering services) and high quality. All groups will be assigned to a section/table of the dining area. All HUONE staff handling food and drinks wear a face mask as well as gloves to prevent contamination.

Arrival timing control to avoid crowding

HUONE adjusts the timing of our guests’ arrival to prevent crowding at the reception with our best effort. The floor at the entrance is marked with lines for a safe distance. The same principle is applied for meal timing (e.g. lunch) to avoid crowding the space. 

Voluntary temperature check

HUONE offers contactless temperature check upon guests’ arrival at the door for safer meetings. 

Guests who show respiratory symptoms will be declined

Aside from fever, guests showing any Covid-19 symptoms include cough, difficulty breathing will be declined entry.
