06 Jul Ongoing COVID Safety Protocol
As we move into what some have called “post-pandemic” phase, there are still many uncertainties about how this virus operates, so the Dalhmann family and our properties will be taking a conservative approach to health and safety. Rather than continuously changing our approach based on emerging – and often conflicting – data, we will be adhering to a strict list of general best practices that consider the virus with respect to its most aggressive potential. Erring on the side of caution has proven effective statewide, so we will be following recommended protocols closely.
