For more than 24 years, Lakewood Lodge has lived by a core value established by our Founders Christine and Jeff Lyons to “take great care of all of our guests as if they were our own”. This enduring value guides us as we face the difficult challenge of responding to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which the World Health Organisation declared a pandemic on Wednesday 11th March 2020.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities and our government who are putting measures in place to secure our people. Please know that we are vigilantly monitoring the COVID-19 situation around the clock and have precautions in place to ensure a healthy stay at our lodge.
We know that in this climate that sending your children to camp may not be your first thought, but I want you to know that the safety of our guests is our top priority. I want to thank you in advance for putting your trust in Lakewood Lodge as you plan for your kids’ camp in the future. Below is an update of what we are doing to keep your safety top of our mind.
You should have confidence when you book a stay at Lakewood Lodge, that you know that we are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO) and local health agencies for the latest developments related to COVID-19 and following the guidance of government and public health officials. Like other businesses tackling this issue, we’re being guided by the Ministry of Health, which recommends regular cleaning as one of the most important preventive measures we can take as well as personal hygiene. We are reinforcing these agencies' recommendations on the appropriate health and safety measures with immediate effect.
During Your Stay
We recognize that the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities. Daily, our team at Lakewood Lodge are working to ensure that they meet the latest guidance from the CDC and WHO on hygiene and cleaning. The Lakewood Lodge health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and cover everything from hand washing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to room and common area cleaning procedures. Specific steps we are available on request.
We’re equally committed to caring for our team and have provided our team members with up-to-the-moment guidance and information so they can keep themselves and their families safe.
Throughout, our team members are hard at work to make sure you enjoy the same excellent experience you have always had at Lakewood Lodge.
We recognize that these are unsettling times and whether you are traveling now or in the future, we want you to know that your safety and well being are our first priority. As circumstances continue to develop, one thing will remain the same: We will make our decisions with the health, safety and well being of all our guests, team members and communities as our highest priority.
Whenever you visit us, we are waiting with open doors and open hearts to serve you.
