Riverside County - Essential Travel Only - as of 3/31
Anticipated Ending ~5/8 - currently Effective until June 19th, 2020
As of 5/7 - Riverside County Supervisors are anticipated to meet early 5/8 and rescind all orders, returning us to state level 'Essential' status for all guests.
For now, the order still in effect:
Hotels/Inns and ‘Short Term Rental’ are to be closed to the general public except for specific Essential reasons.
Upon arrival for check-in to our property, we will be asking all guests to self-declare your purpose for traveling for the stay. You will be presented a form to check one of the following COIVD-19 Mitigation / containment reasons :
1. I/we need lodging for quarantine, self-quarantine and/or to distance myself for isolation purposes.
2. I am an ‘Essential’ worker as prescribed by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.
3. I am homeless, or would become homeless if I am not housed; (or) I do not have a residence that I can return to, whether to protect / isolate my family or due to travel or other restrictions.
Please note that due to privacy and other laws, we cannot request and will not require any “documentation” but do require your signature and affirmation of your reason for your stay in writing upon arrival.
If you’re unable or unwilling to complete the declaration form in writing at check indicating one of the options above, we will be unable to allow you to check in per local county and state orders. Any payments made or owing would be forfeit without refund, and subject to our COVID19 waiver policy which, generally, would not allow any refund on day of check in.
Calfironia Governor's Stay At Home Order-Clarification
The governor's Stay At Home order issued 3/19 left many confused, including us. According to clarification from the California Hotel & Lodging Association as well as the state's Office of Emergency Services, hotels and inns (B&Bs etc) are EXEMPTED from the order, as are employees, staff and guests as they are considered to be performing an ESSENTIAL function. This was verified on 3/20 and we will update this page with more information. See the local county guidelines, above, on what constitutes 'Eseential' travel and that there is currently NOT a ban on travel at the state level, although some regions have enacted their own restrictions.
