In accordance with state, local, and federal public health recommendations, we will implement the following measures for folks on site.

2. We will use disposable and single-serve items as part of meal service and have diners physically distance during eating including using the outdoor areas.  

3. Our staff will wear face masks when preparing and serving meals, and for all other activities dealing with the participants and clean touched surfaces often.

4. We strongly request that participants also wear face masks when interacting with others excepting for their lodging partners and when eating meals.

5. Physical distancing while indoors and outdoors is expected.  Washing hands often is encouraged or using hand sanitizer.
