What the Lighthouse B&B is Doing to Keep You Safe
- CDC recommended disinfectants We have stepped up our already impressive cleaning regimen and will be disinfecting all frequently touched surfaces with disinfectant sprays listed on the CDC list of approved cleaning products for fighting Covid-19.
- Linen Laundering after guest check out we launder all linens including bedspreads, washable shower curtains, towels, and blankets. After one washing cycle, according to CDC guidelines, the covid-19 virus should be gone. Laundry baskets are sanitized between loads.
- Elimination of Common Spaces Guests in the Skiff House will no longer have access to the Keeper’s Quarters. There will be self serve coffee and tea stations in both the Keeper’s Quarters and Skiff House. Any communal games, books, and items that cannot be properly sanitized have been removed. Guests are encouraged to bring their own games and books as the Lighthouse B&B is a WIFI free zone.
- Masks Required We require all staff and guests to wear masks when interacting. Staff must wear gloves and masks when cleaning rooms and common spaces with CDC recommended products.
- Contactless Check-In If you wish to have a contactless check in, please call in advance to pay the remaining balance on your reservation and to receive instructions from our staff.
How you can Stay Safe
Stay home if you are sick. If you are sick or have had contact with someone who is sick, do not go out in public. Contact your local clinic for advice on what to do next and notify any businesses or people you have encountered. Consult the CDC for the proper safety steps if you are sick.
- Be proactive about hygiene. Please wear masks when interacting with people that you are not traveling with. Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer frequently to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Follow the CDC and MDH recommendations for hand-washing and hygiene efforts.
- Order In/Take Out. Area restaurants and stores are reconfiguring how they do business. Most are offering take-out or delivery. Check out the Lake County Chamber of Commerce for a list of open restaurants.
- Be careful and practice extreme safety. As a small rural community, we have limited health care resources. In addition, be considerate of the fact that our Emergency Management Services and Fire Departments are all volunteer based. While our emergency services personnel are professionally trained and dedicated to keeping our community safe, taking an unnecessary risk puts these volunteers at increased risk.
- Practice physical distancing. Follow the recommended social distancing guidelines and maintain a 6’ distance between yourself and people outside of your group. Stay with your party and do not integrate or push yourself into people outside of your own family unit or traveling group.
