You will see our staff with masks on while interacting with you while providing the best care possible.
Arrivals & Departures –
Check in will be via drive-thru at Live Oak Lodge - please wear a mask upon arrival and remain in your car while our staff provide your check in packets. We will be conducting a prescreening upon arrival with a questionaire and temperature check of each individual. In addition, please self monitor a few days prior and if you should develop symptoms before your trip, please stay home and cancel your reservation.
Daily Temperature Checks –
Upon arrival to the Cafeteria each morning, you will be directed to our temperature screening tent with no-touch thermometers (over 2 years old). Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.0 F or above will be directed to an additional location for rescreening and assistance.
Buffet lines have been removed and Cafeteria-serving lines have been implemented during this time. Please allow for extra time to proceed through the line as we serve you. For more details, please see our Covid-19 Operating Procedures, page 4
