VERMONTPer Governor Scott's Executive Order, at this time we may only accept overnight reservations from:
- Vermont residents
- 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.
Massachusetts residents and travelers from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and New Jersey arriving in Massachusetts need not self-quarantine for 14 days. Travelers from other states must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.
In addition, workers designated by the federal government as essential critical infrastructure workers are exempt from the directive to self-quarantine for 14 days if traveling to Massachusetts for work purposes. All persons are instructed not to travel to Massachusetts if they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
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 reopening 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.
