Any guests that exhibit signs of illness or COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival may not be allowed to check in. If symptoms begin during their stay they will be asked to leave and return home if possible. If departure is not possible, guests must self-isolate for the remainder of their stay and the Department of Health must be contacted immediately. Face coverings are required at all times while in hotel public spaces.
Per the Governor's Executive Order, at this time we may only accept overnight reservations from:
Out-of-state residents as follows:
Visitors coming from an area with <400 active cases/million residents, can travel to and from Vermont without quarantine requirements. Residents from those non-quarantine areas must travel directly to Vermont in their personal vehicle.
Visitors coming to Vermont from outside of one of the non-quarantine areas, as long as you travel directly to Vermont in your personal vehicle, can complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in your home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.
Visitors coming to Vermont from outside of one of the non-quarantine areas, and either taking public transportation like a bus, train, or plane, or if you're driving and would need to stop along the way, will need to complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test when you arrive in Vermont at either a lodging establishment or with friends or family.
All guests are required to sign a Certificate of Compliance attesting they meet the quarantine requirement, have traveled from a county with similar active COVID-19 caseload per the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), or are an essential/authorized worker.
All visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, who do not meet an exemption are required to:
- Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival, unless you are visiting from a lower-risk state designated by the Department of Public Health. As of October 20, lower-risk states include: California, Hawaii, New Jersey, Washington, Connecticut, New Hampshire, District of Columbia, New York, Maine, and Vermont.
- Quarantine for 14 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72-hours prior to your arrival in Massachusetts.
- If your COVID-19 test result has not been received prior to arrival, visitors, and residents must quarantine until they receive a negative test result.
Failure to comply may result in a $500 fine per day.
As we are all adjusting to new travel norms, Larkin Hospitality is committed to ensuring the safety and well being of our guests and employees every step of the way.
In the last few months, Larkin Hospitality has taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact. These include increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures at all of our properties. While there is no proven playbook for how to handle the situation we are currently in, we have made a commitment that we will continue to be driven by data, science and public health guidelines as we evaluate and evolve these safety protocols and policies.
Public health experts say that it will take some time for life to return to a sense of normalcy, and even at that point we will have a new definition of what normal is. What we can do now is take what we know about the virus and give our employees and guests the tools they need to be safe and responsible, along with create environments designed to curb its spread.
As we prepare for the future, our priority is adjusting in a manner that puts health and safety at the center of our operations. We believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our employees and guests, while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus.
