COVID-19 Updates

Updated: Sep 19

Currently: We are allowed to be open for dining in the restaurant (both indoors and outdoors) at 50% capacity as legally determined by the Madison County. This means that although a table may be available, patrons may be asked to wait until a table leaves the restaurant before they are ushered to their seat. All tables are currently at least 6-feet apart. In order to accommodate this restriction, we have chosen to mark unavailable tables with black table cloths or remove them from the dining room all together. Please note, that all dinner guests are required to wear their masks at all times, except for when they are seated.

7/27/20 = Lodging Update! In response to increased rates of COVID-19 transmission in certain states within the United States, and to protect New York’s successful containment of COVID-19, the State has joined with New Jersey and Connecticut in jointly issuing a travel advisory for anyone returning from travel to states that have a significant degree of community-wide spread of COVID-19. Thirty four states are currently listed as restricted states for travel. For the full list of restricted states click here.

A travel enforcement operation will commence at airports across the state to help ensure travelers are following the state's quarantine restrictions. As part of the enforcement operation, enforcement teams will be stationed at airports statewide to meet arriving aircrafts at gates and greet disembarking passengers to request proof of completion of the State Department of Health traveler form, which is being distributed to passengers by airlines prior to, and upon boarding or disembarking flights to New York State. 

All out-of-state travelers from designated states must complete the form upon entering New York. Travelers who leave the airport without completing the form will be subject to a $2,000 fine and may be brought to a hearing and ordered to complete mandatory quarantine. Travelers coming to New York from designated states through other means of transport, including trains and cars, must fill out the form online
