melwel lodge covid-19 information
Dear valued friends, colleagues and employees of Melwel Lodge;
As all are aware, North America is enduring severe health challenges dealing with the extremely dangerous COVID 19/ Coronovirus.
While we normally think of Melwel's pristine 33 acres as an oasis of relaxation, rest, and recovery away from more densely populated urban areas, we abide by the laws of Ontario as well as best practices established by the medical community as a means of preventing contamination should somebody unknowingly visit our property after having been exposed to the virus.
These include but are not limited to:
- Asking any guest or friends who have visited or been exposed to an infected jurisdiction to please stay at home in self isolation a minimum of 14 days and be extra mindful of any viral symptoms, no matter how minimal or acute
- We are delaying our opening weekend this Spring by 1 week to reduce off-season visits to the property, thus allowing extra cleaning to be performed before seasonal volumes increase.
- We use very powerful anti-bacterial soap when cleaning cabins and public spaces
- While we have always taken pride in the spotless upkeep of cabins and public areas, we are asking our cleaners to be extra diligent, reaching for hard-to-access corners and surfaces to ensure all of Melwel is clean and sanitized.
- We are wiping all public surfaces such as bathroom counters, amenities and door handles with disinfectant twice daily during weekends, continuing into July and August prime season.
- We ask all employees and guests to immediately wash their hands with disinfectant soap upon arriving at Melwel.
In accordance with new legislation enacted by the government of Ontario, we will not host gatherings of greater than 5 people until until the Coronavirus threat passes and we are notified by the government it is safe to resume group events.
We will continue to monitor updates by both government of Ontario and Algoma Public Health Unit regarding regional episodes of Coronavirus as well as best practices for preventing spread.
Thank you for joining us in following best practices to ensure the safety of all.
Wishing all a speedy return to normal healthy lifestyles, wherever you call home
