Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
We are trying to update and inform travelers and potential travelers as thoroughly as we can during these difficult times please know that the Love Leavenworth Team takes the health of our guest's and our local community seriously.
*SPECIAL NOTE-We are currently in a modified version of Phase One. Restaurants and shops are open at limited capacity and you may travel with up to 5 members outside of your household. As of 6/21/20 it appears that we will soon be applying for phase 2 in Chelan County. More updates to follow.
Washington State started Phase 1 on May 4th and our state is now allowing for “limited non-essential travel for Phase 1 permissible activities”. During the Phase 1 portion travelers within the same household may rent properties with the intent to enjoy outdoor recreation while still participating in safe social distancing practices and self-isolation. We ask our guests to bring groceries from home, as to avoid shopping in our local food markets. During all phases anyone who has knowingly been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or is currently sick is asked not to come and stay in one of our homes, for the safety of our community, our staff and our future guests.
Currently Phase II allows for limited non essential travel and is projected to begin in late May. This phase opens up many businesses and allows restaurants to seat guests. If reserved or considering reserving during Phase 2 the current restrictions include traveling with household members plus 5 people from outside your household.
Currently Phase III allows for resuming all travel and allows for gatherings of up to 50 People. Phase III is projected to begin Mid June and end early July.
When considering travel, please refer to the official washington state website at www.coronavirus.wa.gov for current and up to date information and guidelines. Please review the State of Washington's Safe Start guidelines for more in depth information.
