Hi all - Starting 12Nov, Vermont will now require all non-essential travelers from out-of-state to quarantine for 14 days or quarantine for 7 days and show a negative test. Over the last couple of months, I have required all guests to complete a Certificate of Compliance that certifies they've complied with several conditions regarding COVID safety. Although all guests have signed the form, I’ve relied on the honor system as the state does.
With the winter ski season quickly approaching, I understand that skiing is not essential travel…so should all reservations be cancelled as of tomorrow? I know all of the ski resorts have made great efforts to keep guests safe but what are hosts supposed to do with such short notice? I understand the governor's concerns with keeping residents as safe as possible but notice of the restriction was just released on 10Nov…2 days’ notice!!
I'm just curious what other hosts in Vermont are doing with their upcoming reservations with such short notice.
Yes areas are being closed down at short notice @Eric940 Thats the nature of Covid.
In England this happened to us recently when the whole country went into lockdown for a month.
So I would you do what hosts all over the world have had to do when their areas lock down. Contact the guests. Tell them of new regulations Suggest they rebook and if that’s not possible- they should be able to cancel penalty free..
They will need to share comfy the area is closed for all but essential travel.
sometimes you need to text them too as not all guests have their accounts set to receive message updates.
@Eric940 It sounds like your non-essential (and essential travel not quarantining) should be canceled. What are ski resorts going? One would think they would have to shut down, if not only available to Vermont residents.
