Island County was officially approved to move to Phase-II of the governor’s phased approach to reopen Washington!
● For us this means for the first time in over 2 months we can now begin to serve our hot breakfast again for guests with certain restrictions*.
We expect to begin offering hot breakfast for the weekend of May 29, 30 & 31.
● It also means that restaurants can begin to reopen dining areas with certain restrictions (not all will be opening up for dine-in during phase-2)
● It also means the local retail stores (shops) can have in-store purchases again (with restrictions).
* Restrictions that apply for us during Phase-2:
- We will be limiting occupancy to just 4 rooms in the pink house. (50% occupancy)
- We are removing the “Phase-1 Lockdown Fee”
- Dining is now set-up in the main parlor of the pink house with 2-top tables to allow 6-foot distancing.
- Groups of 3, 4 or 5 may be accommodated by pushing tables together. No groups of 6 or larger are permitted.
- Hot breakfast will be served at either 8:00 or 9:00 AM by advance reservation.
- Continental and Grab & Go breakfast options are still available.
- It is recommended that guests wear a cloth face covering anytime they are not seated at the table or are in their guest rooms.
- Your innkeepers will be serving breakfast while wearing cloth face-coverings.
- Two-top tables will also remain available in guest rooms to facilitate in-room dining.
- Check-in will continue to be “contactless” self check-in and self check-out.
The Washington Department of Health also offers the following guidance:
