RESERVATIONS

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. All persons are required to wear face-coverings in all public places, even where they are able to maintain 6 feet of distance from others. 

VERMONT

All guests are required to sign a Certificate of Compliance attesting they meet at least one of the following requirments:

A) Travel is for essential purposes as defined by the State of Vermont; OR

B) Have not left the state of Vermont for any reason except essential travel in the past 14 days; OR

C) Have traveled to Vermont from another state, and traveled directly from their home in their personal vehicle only after having first completed a 14-day self-quarantine (or a 7-day self-quarantine and followed by the time required to obtain a negative test result) in that state; OR

D) Have traveled to Vermont from another state, and will complete a self-quarantine (up to 14 days or a 7-day self-quarantine followed by the time required to obtain a negative test result) in Vermont at a lodging establishment or residence, and acknowledge that they must stay in the quarantine location for the duration of the quarantine, including the time required to obtain a negative test result; OR

E) It has been at least 14 days since the traveling party received the final COVID-19 vaccine dose, and therefore the party is exempt from the quarantine requirements.

To slow the spread of COVID-19 in Vermont, you may not gather with anyone you don't live with, unless you are fully vaccinated. If you have gathered with people you don't live with, you should quarantine. The Health Department strongly encourages getting tested as soon as 2 days after gathering and then again on day 7. If you are fully vaccinated (it has been 14 days since your final vaccine dose), you may gather with one other household at a time, even if the people in that household are not vaccinated.

MASSACHUSETTS

All visitors entering Massachusetts, including returning residents, who do not meet an exemption are required to:

A) Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival, unless you are visiting from a lower-risk state designated by the Department of Public Health. 

B.) Quarantine for 10 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result. The specimen for the test must have been collected no longer than 72 hours before your arrival in Massachusetts, and the testing must be by a method approved by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Upon request, you must be able to demonstrate proof of the negative test result.

C) 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.


OUR COMMITMENT

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.
