SAFETY AT THE LONG NECK INN AND THE OLD GAME FARM:
We want you to know that the health and safety of our guests is our #1 priority. In an effort to keep everyone safe we have done the following:
We have increased our cleaning and disinfecting practices to insure guests stay safe:
- THE ENTIRE BUILDING (COMMON AREAS AND GUEST ROOMS):
- Air Exchange Unit: The Inn has an 'air exchange unit' built into all of the rooms which automatically exchanges indoor/outdoor air (to learn more CLICK HERE)
- Window Air Conditioners: The Inn is cooled with window air conditioning units instead of an interconnected central system used through the entire building.
- COMMON AREAS:
Masks must be warn in all common areas at all times.
Disinfecting - Multiple times a day all common areas, handles knobs and surfaces are disinfected
Furniture - Any furniture which can not be wiped down (upholstered furniture, throw pillows etc) get sprayed with 70% isopropyl alcohol
Kitchen - has specific rules to be followed (these rules are posted) and include: No more than 4 people in the kitchen at a time, sanitizing stations are in the kitchen for guests to wipe all surfaces, handles or other places they come in contact with both before and after use (in addition to our routine of also wiping these surfaces with disinfectant).
Sanitizing Stations: We have asked all guests while staying with us to please help us keep everything as safe as possible for everyone at The Old Game Farm by using the Sanitizing Stations we have throughout the Inn to wipe down anything they come in contact with (in addition to our staff also cleaning regularly). These are placed in all the common areas within the Inn (the beverage station, dining/game room, half bath and kitchen.
Hand Sanitizer is available throughout the Inn for guest use, including outside each of the guest rooms.
GUEST ROOMS: We have a multi-step cleaning process for each.
We are only using linens that have been washed on the hottest washer and dryer settings.
We are first cleaning all surfaces, fixtures, handles etc
Then disinfecting all of those after they are cleaned. This includes door handles, light switches, flat surfaces, door chains etc.
Any materials which can not be properly cleaned this way (upholstered furniture, throw pillows etc) get sprayed with 70% rubbing alcohol.
All surfaces are then sprayed down with either disinfectant or 70% isopropyl alcohol (depending on the material) before the room is sealed - not to be opened until our next guest arrives.
We are asking only guests free of symptoms and free of known exposures to stay.
Cathy - the owner - has experience working both in the Operating Room maintaining sterility for surgeries as well as professional cleaning companies. We are well equipped and educated to make your stay as safe as possible.
We hope that you are staying happy, healthy and sane and look forward to seeing you in the near future!
Thank you for your continued understanding during this trying time,
Cathy & Ben Ballone
