Dear friends and guests –
We’ve been fortunate to have made it so far in this pandemic and we are beyond grateful for everyone’s support. Unfortunately, a few of our employees have tested positive for COVID. In the spirit of transparency and an abundance of caution, we have made a decision to close for lunch and dinner as of today. We will also be closed for breakfast for a few days.
Beginning today, February 24:
- the restaurant and bar operations for breakfast, lunch and dinner are suspended.
- Inn rooms will remain open.
Was I exposed?
We know that given this information some guests may be worried. While a few employees tested positive, in accordance with CDC guidelines, we feel it is very unlikely the public was exposed. None of the waitstaff has tested positive. For the safety of our staff and guests we’ve decided to test all staff working breakfast, lunch, dinner and in the bars as a cautionary measure.
Why will you start back up with Breakfast only?
We will re-open for breakfast with a small crew that has been tested. These employees work entirely for breakfast. Additionally, breakfast is served from a separate kitchen, in a different dining room.
What are your next steps?
Our plan is to close for breakfast, lunch & dinner. All staff will be tested. Then we’ll reopen breakfast in a few days and then reopen lunch and dinner the middle of next week, as long as employees come back negative and it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, we are following CDC and state guidelines and doing a deep clean of the entire facility.
Our employees and guests are our #1 priority and we need to take these steps to ensure everyone’s safety. As we know more, we will continue to update on social media and blog posts.
We apologize for the inconvenience but we know you’ll understand our decision. We continue to be humbled and so appreciative of your support, encouragement, love and prayers as we all continue to navigate these challenging times together.
