Crane Bay Commitment During COVID-19

Our Commitment

The Crane Bay Event Center and Crystal Catering have always made the well-being of guests and employees our priority. In response to the COVID-19 concerns, we have intensified our sanitation, safety and communication measures through a plan that aligns with the guidelines from the State of Indiana and local governing agencies. In addition to our established procedures in place, we will institute new best practices to ensure the safety of our guests, team and community. We will continue to make updates to our protocols as guidelines from these sources are revised.


  • Hand sanitation stations will be available at entrances and in high traffic areas.
  • Designated staff members will be positioned to clean high touch areas throughout our venues using a hospital grade EPA approved disinfectant.
  • Management team will ensure that all additional safety measures are being carried out.
  • A wellness check screening of all employees will be taken prior to entering the facility.
  • All catering staff will wear gloves and masks and facility staff will wear masks.

Social Distancing

  • Physical distancing parameters will be met through custom seating arrangements and designated distancing markers to fulfill recommended guidelines.
  • A door greeter will be in place to provide a touch free entry into the facility.


  • Instructional signage will be posted throughout the facility highlighting COVID-19 awareness procedures and social distancing measures.
  • Materials will be provided for the client to share with attendees before the event in order to provide insight on what to expect.
  • Our ServSafe certified management team will be providing training to all employees on the enhanced health, safety, sanitation, serving and clearing procedures.

It is our complete intention to remain honest and transparent about our procedures to ensure that our guests and employees feel safe within our doors. We have created this document to give you insight on how we will operate with state and local guidelines in place for COVID-19. Our mission is to create a gracious and memorable event for you and your guests while maintaining all necessary guidelines instituted by our governing entities. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we navigate through the evolving requirements for social gatherings. We hope this makes you feel safe in knowing how much we care.
