These changes will go into effect immediately and last until at least March 22nd.

The focus of these changes is to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 by eliminating the social gathering of groups of 10 people or more and restricting the interactions of local guests with those who have recently traveled. These changes are based on guidance of local, state and national healthcare authorities.

· Groups of related individuals will be asked to soak together in the same pool.

Pahgosa Spa: The Pahgosa Spa will be closed.

Entertainment/Events:
Normal music and entertainment events that could have crowds of more than 10 people in a single indoor space have been canceled.

Food & Beverage:
· In order to balance the needs of guests and the safety of our staff and community, Service will be limited, while ensuring necessary services are available to our guests.
· The Café will be open to hotel guests for pick-up only.
· The Canteen will be open to Bath House guests for pick-up only.
· The Phoenix bar will provide counter-pick-up service only with limited seating in the Great Room.

Cleanliness: We will continue to perform the highest level of disinfectant cleaning across the property.

We have heard from many friends and businesses in the community asking us not to close or restrict operations in this crucial economic time. However, the health and safety of our community must take priority and these initial measures are based on the guidance of public health authorities. If advised by health authorities, or if necessary, in the interest of our community and staff, we will close the pool area to all outside guests.

We encourage all of our community members and local businesses to listen to the advice of local healthcare officials. Together we will find solutions for the betterment of our community.
Sincerely, The Springs Resort & Spa

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, Dollar General is strongly encouraging that the first hour of operations each day be dedicated solely for the shopping needs of senior customers, who are one of the groups most vulnerable to the COVID-19 coronavirus. In keeping with the Company’s mission of Serving Others, Dollar General wants to provide these at-risk customers with the ability to purchase the items they need and want at the beginning of each day to avoid busier and more crowded shopping periods.

At Homespun Comforts, we believe everything we do helps people live happier and healthier lives.  We accomplish this by keeping hot tubs and spas safe and sanitary.  Using your hot tub should not be stressful, quite the opposite.  Spa’s promote healthy cardiovascular systems, a more peaceful and restful sleep, lowering blood pressure and lessens anxiety – all things we need most now. Procedures at Homespun have always stressed cleanliness but more so even now.  We have altered our staff’s schedules to minimize social interaction at the store and we have implemented more aggressive cleaning procedures.  In the field our team is equipped with several layers of disinfecting tools and procedures and have been reeducated in our and the CDC expectations for Hot tub service and maintenance. Our retail store remains open at this time and to better serve our community members with underlying health conditions, Homespun will provide limited delivery service or curbside pick-up for spa chemicals and hot tub incidentals to assist you in maintaining a healthy spa, during this COVID-19 outbreak. If you have any concerns regarding water quality and proper sanitation, please reach out to us and a CPO Certified staff member will be more than happy to guide you.
