In March 2020, in line with countless global hospitality establishments and in observance of our provincial government’s directives, we had to close the Inn’s doors to do our part in flattening the COVID-19 curve. Since then, we’ve been waiting for the province of Newfoundland & Labrador to remove the travel restrictions that would allow us to welcome guests from throughout Canada (and eventually from around the globe) back to the Inn and to Fogo Island.
As this year gradually comes to a close, in the absence of any indication of possible future border reopening dates from the province, we are forced to accept that 2020 is not a viable operational year for our Inn. With optimism, our plan is to begin welcoming guests to Fogo Island Inn starting March 11, 2021 providing that government regulations allow.
Like all businesses, we’re adapting and making necessary changes to our operations in light of Covid-19. While Fogo Island is low-density and has not had any cases to date, we intend to remain vigilant upon re-opening with prevention measures in order to protect and promote public health.
To help keep our staff, our community, and our guests safe, we’ve implemented a comprehensive set of measures along the entire guest journey to prioritize COVID-19 risk mitigation. As any of our wonderful housekeeping team members could attest, we have always followed stringent sanitation protocols, and we remain committed to exceeding government guidelines and best practice policies.
Key to our efforts as a hospitality leader, pioneer of holistic sustainability, and as a member of the Fogo Island community, we pledge to adjust to this new way of operating while continuing to offer the warm, genuinely welcoming experience that our visitors expect.
