Charlie and Brian hope that this note finds you all doing well and staying safe. We have missed many of you during this pandemic and we are certainly looking forward to seeing and hosting you all once again in 2021 and beyond!! We subscribe to the idea that we can achieve our best selves here at the Inn by working towards the common good. This includes the safety and well-being of our guests – and our great staff too!
It has been a wonderfully busy season here at the Inn on Cape Cod! Occupancy has way surpassed even 2019 numbers. As vaccinations continue to make hopeful progress, we are excited to see you all enjoy a more relaxed stay after the LONG time spent indoors and/or away from friends and loved ones. We will attempt to keep you updated here on any new developments that we become aware of. Here is what we know so far:
A Travel Advisory has been put in place, effective March 22, 2021, to guide all travelers and returning residents to help keep transmissions of COVID-19 at the lowest levels possible.
As of Fri., 4/30, Face Masks are no longer necessary in outdoor settings where social distancing can be maintained.
CDC Guidance: Masks are not required indoors or outdoors for those fully vaccinated.
Effective Sat., 5/29, Massachusetts allowed all industries to be open with all restrictions, including the use of face masks for those fully vaccinated, & capacity limits to be lifted. Those folks that are not fully vaccinated are highly encouraged to continue using face masks and to continue to practice social distancing.
As of Sat., 7/10, the Delta Variant is accounting for 90% of the new cases in the State of MA. Other states are seeing a much higher percentage of new cases, but this has not affected any travel to Massachusetts from these states.
As of Mon., 9/6, boosters are not yet formally recommended or approved for any of the COVID-19 vaccines. We will let you know when we learn more.
Brian will continue to work on the Brewster Reopening Advisory Board for as long as the group remains together to communicate any new information to the town, fellow businesses and guests. He will communicate the latest Social Guidelines and available options to all guests as their arrival dates approach. Responses may be requested from each guest regarding preferences for breakfast dining, guest room cleaning, etc. With some creativity, we hope to still provide all of the amenities that you are used to enjoying here at the Inn! We feel that the precautions are the socially-responsible choice and will support a more favorable long-term outcome for the communities and guests that support us.
For those guests are not fully vaccinated (2 shots + 2 weeks), we will continue to highly encourage those guests to do the following when in common areas & public spaces:
To cover their face.
To wash their hands.
To maintain social distance.
To be vigilant for symptoms.
If you have any questions or need more details, please reach out directly to Brian at the Inn via email (firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 508-896-3149). We will be monitoring the evolving situation constantly as we move forward so that we can welcome you all for a great stay!
We hope you will join us as we know everyone needs that time away to re-charge after the last year!
