Normally providing bed-and-breakfast style lodging with numerous guests, HHH has temporarily transitioned into a rental home model. Only one family resides in the houses at a time, eliminating any concern of shared spaces or social distancing. During their stay, staff and volunteers have minimal to no interaction with the guests on site. Between guests, volunteers are cleaning and sanitizing to the highest CDC requirements while wearing gloves and masks.
Social distancing has been extended to the registration process, too. Guests are emailed a link to fill in a Google Form, which normally would have been done in person with the manager. “It was quick and easy, and I did it from the comfort of my own home, at my convenience,” said a guest who recently completed the process in advance of her stay.
Guests are asked to check their temperature and complete a pre-screening health assessment in advance of their stay, and every day throughout. If a volunteer or staff member has to be onsite, masks are available and required. Sanitizing stations are at each entryway.
As always, Hunter Hospitality House is filled with an abundance of amenities, and all guests stay for free. “Despite these new protocols, we are still offering what we’ve always provided: rest for the weary and heavy hearted,” said Tracy Willard, Executive Director of HHH. Adults with a hospitalized loved one, treatment of their own, or an early morning surgery are welcome to stay at HHH.
To make a reservation or ask questions, call the HHH Manager, Jeff Willard, at 810-990-9956. More information is available at their website, hunterhospitalityhouse.com.
