Hotel Health Policies:
A mask or face covering will be required when interacting with hotel employees, including upon entering at the main gate. The gate attendant will take your temperature using an infared thermometer to ensure you do not have a fever. Any temperature reading of 38 C / 100 F or higher will be reported to the front desk and local Department of Health for further testing. You will be asked to self-isolate in your room.

The CDC has recommended that people avoid shaking hands and maintain a six-foot space between themselves to help minimize the spread of illnesses which we are requiring all guests to adhere to. We ask that you take extra precautions regarding washing and sanitizing your hands and have provided hand sanitizer in all public areas. Our staff will be sanitizing and cleaning all areas of the hotel through out the day.

Our employees have received training from a territorial epidemiologist on best practices and we have implemented these into our daily routine on property. In addition to these commonsense protocols, our management team remains in close contact with our local epidemiologist and Department of Health representatives and have created internal memos on best practices to prevent the spread of the virus
