Question: WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT COVID-19?
Answer: We are providing guest services to essential employees and families during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The health and safety of our guests and colleagues is our top priority. With this in mind and in compliance with the order from the Department of Health, we want to inform our guests of the following policy updates:
- All arriving guests are required to have masks upon entry of the hotel. These masks must be worn in all areas of the hotel, except guest rooms.
- Only registered guests with a reservation will be permitted on the property. Visitors are not allowed unless they are guests included on the reservation in our reservation system.
- No contact deliveries are permitted, but will need to be met for pickup in the lobby (deliveries to the guest room are not permitted).
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Please note this is a rapidly evolving situation. We are regularly updating this page with key information as we receive it. We encourage guests to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a reliable source for the most updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.
give us the wisdom to discover You,
the intelligence to understand You,
the diligence to seek after You,
the patience to wait for You,
eyes to behold You,
a heart to meditate upon You,
and a life to proclaim You,
through the power of the Spirit of Jesus, our Lord.
As we align with the initial reopening plans, we remind guests and associates to continue practicing social distancing and encourage those who are at high risk to please stay at home. Moving forward, we continue to monitor the public health crisis so that we can make decisions based on safety in the interest of our guests utilizing the best information available.
Today is the 112th day of quarantine. It has been 16 weeks, including the end date, since a National Emergency was declared by the President of the United States on March 13th, 2020. Businesses in our region are permitted to reopen with reduced services based on state and local guidelines.
A State of Emergency was declared by the Governors of Pennsylvania and Delaware. These orders remain in effect due to a public health emergency as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. (CDC)
The purpose of our plan is to facilitate and organize employer and associate actions required to maintain operations. A well-developed operations plan and proper training whereby all associates understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan can result in fewer and less severe guest and associate injuries and less structural damage to the facility in the event of an emergency.
Detailed risk analysis concludes that COVID19 is a highly contagious disease with transmission research still in progress. Despite the similarity to influenza, using basic mathematics, we can determine that COVID19 is spreading very quickly and not exactly the same as influenza. The faster the spread, the higher probability of an increase in the loss of human life.
Based on scientific and medical data that is available to date, airborne transmission is the highest risk factor for transmission. Airborne viruses have unique elements of transmission and the most important reason for wearing a face mask.
The COVID19 virus can maintain and survive on surfaces as well as in the air. Studies in a laboratory may not represent real life scenarios, however vital scientific research can provide us with guidance and direction when it comes to daily operations and preparedness.
Summary - please note that it is possible for someone to have COVID-19 and spread it to others, even if they have no symptoms. It is also possible to receive a negative test, but then contract the virus after you have been tested.
Risk management analysis shows that by following all guidance provided by the CDC for facility management and emergency response preparedness, we will be able to implement the necessary COVID-19 response initiatives. This effort will conclude once we are able to maintain normal business operations, based on federal and state regulations.
The following data must also be taken into consideration. This is highly sensitive and difficult statistical data that is required for our risk management analysis. WHY? We have one reason - Insurance Liability - the mitigation of risk. Our risk management analysis is focused on avoidance. Risk management is important to our organization because without it, we are unable to define our objectives for the future. The goal of our risk management initiative is to make sure that our organization only takes the risks that will help achieve our primary objectives such as guest safety.
Risk professionals and consultants review data and statistics provided for all countries around the world with available data, as well as the data provided for The United States of America.
The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide is at 10.83 million as of Thursday, July 2nd, 2020
4,259,467 Currently Infected Patients
4,201,503 (99%) in Mild Condition
57,964 (1%) Serious or Critical
6,576,797 Cases which had an outcome:
6,057,192 (92%) Recovered / Discharged
519,605 (8%) Deaths
Please note, since our team began monitoring this data, the following changes have occurred:
Our Risk Management Team calculates the coronavirus data to monitor the crisis but more importantly, this gives our Team the ability to recognize the true scope and significance of this global pandemic. We are not just looking at numbers, this data and information represents People. It is difficult for our Team to review and include this statistical information. The lives of those we love, that have been lost, cannot be replaced. As we focus on recovery around the world, we also hope to show our respect for the lives of those individuals that have been lost due to this virus.
Lord Jesus, look kindly on our work and the work of our friends today.
Help us in our difficulties and decisions.
May this candle be a light for you to enlighten us.
May it be a fire for you to burn out of us all pride, selfishness and impurity.
May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into our hearts;
warmth towards family, neighbors and all whom we may meet.
Many, ourselves included, have a difficult time with understanding complicated and/or detailed pandemic information that is provided to us by scientific professionals and institutional leadership, working in public and private sectors, across the globe.
We can only ask for guidance.
The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting 213 countries and territories around the world and 2 international conveyances. Based on our research, new cases increased by a significant percentage around the world within the past 15 weeks. However, we must also note that the recovery percentage also improved by thirteen percent over the past 15 week period. Most will discount our risk analysis and research to say that there is much more that needs to be part of the process and mathematical calculation. While we understand the need for advanced scientific analysis, we also have the ability to learn from basic math. Reviewing the data on a linear versus logarithmic scale will also make a difference in how the results are interpreted.
Our only intention on this website is to promote safety and kindness. Keeping our chin up and our hands clean. We respect the state and local restrictions that have been put in place on a temporary basis to slow the spread of a highly contagious virus that has subsequently created a public health crisis. Our organization is providing guest services for essential employees and families during COVID-19. We have implemented the operational changes required to maintain guest safety and public health standards going forward.

We recognize that the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we travel and go about our daily activities. We are diligently following the practices and guidelines set forth by the CDC on hygiene and cleaning.
With the goal of easing your travel planning, we have adjusted our booking policies to provide additional flexibility.
Orders from Pennsylvania & Delaware Department of Health Organizations have been implemented.
- Presymptomatic transmission of SARS-CoV-2 increases the challenges of COVID-19 containment measures, which are predicated on early detection and isolation of symptomatic persons.
- The magnitude of this impact is dependent upon the extent and duration of transmissibility while a person is presymptomatic, which, to date, have not been clearly established.

Note: Our operations team is required to write an operations report. Our operations report is concise and well-organized. There are specific points that are highlighted throughout our reporting in order for the information to be complete and accurate. In order to make sure our operations report is in the correct format and context, specific steps have been taken to compile the data and write the report.
Back to Basics
The following basic questions are addressed in our operations reporting in order for the operational information we collect on a daily basis to be complete.
We address the following:
- Identify daily operations and report any facility issues
- Explain why each issue is important and assign a priority
- Identify a way to solve the problem, with or without help
- Focus on what we are currently doing as an organization as well as what we are doing to solve any issues that may have been identified
- Provide an update on metrics as well as solutions for issues that may have been identified
- Show how we provide a safe environment for everyone by having measurable metrics that demonstrate our ability to maintain guest safety.
Our outline identifies the basic points mentioned above and clearly describes these key points. Our operations reporting defines the key points and their reasoning to guests and associates. Regardless of whether or not someone is extremely familiar with the information in the report or if it is new to the individual, we believe that every report must be able to speak to everyone.
Please note that our Operations Report speaks to a wide global audience as we host guests and associates from all over the world. Our operational reporting shall always be specific enough for all guests and associates to understand what our organization is about and what our interest is in our community. We aim to serve local, regional and international guests as well as our associates. It is important that our Operations Plan makes sense to an associate in training as well as a seasoned operations manager and most importantly, the general public. If any of these individuals were to read our Operations Report, each individual would be able to understand what our publication is about. We must be able to put ourselves in the shoes of every guest and associate in order to determine if our emergency operations planning will work.
Coronavirus updates are an important part of the operations report until further notice. It shall continue to be limited in length. It is important that this public health update conveys the current global health crisis, its importance, as well as a brief description of how the health crisis can be mitigated or resolved. We are dedicated to our contribution to solving problems and we continue to improve our efforts to make a contribution. Technical language has been limited in the summary and only used if it is relevant to the operational reporting, otherwise we write in plain clear English. Our operations report may be transmitted to third parties with no additional supporting material, it is important to us that all reporting clearly conveys the context of the operation.
We believe that using pictures and illustrations in our operations report can help draw attention to the story we are telling. We create, capture and provide these graphics and pictures sometimes with the use of the Internet. Each illustration includes a title and information about what we are trying to convey by using the illustration. We always must give proper credit to where the illustration comes from if we did not create on our own or purchase with the right to redistribute. Corporate copyright information must be included with all photos, tables and graphs.
