Safety Procedures

Updated as Guidelines Change

The Miners Foundry has always considered the health and safety of our guests, staff, and community to be our highest priority.  We are working with local officials to make sure we are in compliance with all State and County guidelines.

May 14, 2021 | Update

Although the Center for Disease Control announced masks were no longer required yesterday, the California Department of Public Health has jurisdiction over the CDC.  The CDPH has not yet updated their guidelines in response to the CDC’s update.  Masks continue to be required at the Miners Foundry when indoors and not actively eating or drinking.
