We are committed to the health and safety of our guests and staff.
We are open and admitting new guests. Each new admission is tested for COVID-19 and re-tested in one week to mitigate risks associated with the virus. We are working with our local health department to schedule staff vaccinations as part of Group 1 of the vaccination plan.
