COVID Safety Precautions!

Current 4/7/21

The safety of Highlands’ guests and staff has always been a priority. During this time of COVID we are taking extra precautions to ensure this safety.

  • Staff are doing daily temperature checks and symptom assessment.

  • We have increased our sanitization schedule for restrooms, our kitchen, and public spaces.

  • Highlands is requiring face masks and social distancing for all staff and guests when indoors.

  • As of April 5, 2021 Boulder County Public Health no longer requires masks outdoors as long as you are able to maintain social distancing from guests outside your household.
  • Dining areas are set with 6 feet distancing between tables. Guests may select seating at a table where others, with whom they feel comfortable, are seated. Once a table has been selected, we ask that you remain with that group and/or use that table for all indoor seated activities (meals, meetings, etc.). This configuration allows us to accommodate approximately 50 people per dining area.

  • We may have 50% occupancy in our lodging. This allows us to have up to 24 families or a total of 45 unrelated people in the Retreat Center lodging. Cabins are limited to 6-10 people.

  • Soap and water, hand sanitizer, or disinfecting wipes will be available at all entrances and at all high-contact surfaces such as the front desk.

  • Whenever possible, contactless payment systems will be utilized. Credit cards and checks will be accepted for payments. Cash payments are strongly discouraged.

When Illness Affects Your Group!

As a courtesy to all, if you are not feeling well please do not come to Highlands.

Highlands is very aware of the many illnesses people may be concerned about during this time of year including, but not limited to, influenza and COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  We have always made sanitization and disinfection a high priority at Highlands.  During this time of year many of our guest groups stay in the Retreat Center which makes addressing the issue of illness mitigation a little easier since there are many hand washing stations available in the Retreat Center.  As an extra effort during this time of increased cases of illness, Highlands is taking the following steps:

  • We have issued instructions to all staff to mitigate the possible spread of the virus.

  • Housekeeping has increased the frequency of using disinfectants in restrooms, on door handles and light switches.

  • We have placed hand sanitizer bottles in key locations for the convenience of our guests, however, please remember hand sanitizer is not as effective as washing with soap and warm/hot water for at least 20 seconds.

  • If a member of your group should become sick, we have purchased a temporal thermometer to be used by staff and guest leadership while at Highlands.

  • We have face masks for guests who may be experiencing symptoms and those that care for them in isolation.

  • We continue to review our protocols as situations develop.

You can take extra steps to mitigate the spread of illness by:
  • Washing your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm/hot water.

  • If you are sneezing or coughing please do so into your elbow, and wash your hands after.

  • If you or your child have not been fever free for at least 24 hours please stay home.

Please contact us if you have more questions.
