A LETTER TO OUR GUESTS REGARDING COVID-19
Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge exists and operates in a very special, geographically isolated corner of the world where outdoor therapy and the concept of “social distancing” is essentially our way of life. It’s why my staff and I choose to reside and raise families in this incredible locale. We have and always will be honored to share our home with those that wish to visit.
As we all attempt to return to a sense of normalcy, the Lodge reopens for our 50th Anniversary Season on May 22 in lock-step with our fellow businesses in Curry County. Reopening is not something we take lightly and service will be modified in response to the world around us. My staff and I do so with safety and health at the forefront, especially with respect to our most important relationships – the relationships with our immediate community and also with our guests. This county has proudly and successfully maintained a very low rate of infection of COVID-19. At this time, it’s imperative we do what we can to help protect our community all while offering respite and comfort to our wonderful and appreciated guests. The State of Oregon has provided both mandatory measures and recommended guidance to undertake a “Phase I” reopening. Our team is committed to comply with this guidance, doing what we can to mitigate the spread of the virus while doing our best to maintain a high level of service. We want to assure you we take this seriously and everyone’s well-being is our priority now more than ever.
We have been hard-at-work preparing to adapt our services in a thoughtful, responsible manner. This has included enhancing our cleaning protocols, emphasizing preventative measures through staff use of PPE and sanitization, and re-creating our culinary experience to offer Pacific Northwest-focused cuisine to be enjoyed with distancing and capacity taken into consideration. Clearly the most noticeable changes will be to our culinary experience. Altering our dining format will be a temporary departure from our tradition, but with the leadership of our new Executive Chef Austin Stein we will embrace this challenge in-effort to deliver high quality, inspired meals in a comfortable setting. For more information regarding food service at the Lodge during COVID-19, please visit the DINING page on our website.
Rest assured, when it’s safe to do so and the State allows us to move forward, we will enthusiastically return to our traditional dining formats.
On that note, thank you for visiting our website and for considering Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge in your future travel plans. Office Hosts are available daily from 6 am to 10 pm PST to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us – we’re here for you. We look forward to seeing you when you are ready! Until then, take good care of yourselves and each other.
