Due to the surge in cases of the COVID19 Delta variant in NC, Brunswick County and on Bald Head Island, everyone entering the Inn aged 2 and up will be required to wear full mask coverings in all common areas inside the Inn regardless of vaccination status. Masks worn under the chin or below the nose offer no safety for others. This new variant is affecting all ages, including fully vaccinated individuals and now more than ever younger adults, teens and even young children. Although the Pfizer vaccine has full FDA approval, children under the age of 12 are not yet eligible, it is everyone’s responsibility to keep them, our staff, and each other safe. If this policy is not followed, each owner or guest will receive one friendly reminder of our masking policy, after that a $100 fine will be imposed on the owner for each infraction via quarterly dues. If an owner is hosting guests, it will be their responsibility to be sure our MHI safety policy is enforced. We can only remain open if our staff and their families remain well. Wearing masks, keeping a safe distance, and washing hands frequently has been proven to dramatically reduce the spread of this Virus.
We do this out of respect for each other.
Daily room service will not be provided for everyone’s safety. You will need to dispose of your own trash during your stay. The trash receptacles are in the garage behind the building. Please take your recyclables to the Island Recycle Center near the Market. The staff will provide a laundry bag or vessel for you to leave used linens outside your door and they will leave fresh linens by your door in return.
Breakfast will continue to be served with limited dining space available and should only be used for those fully vaccinated to reduce the risk of serious illness. Please feel free to enter the dining area fully masked to prepare a tray for dining outside or in your own suite. Please return your dishes and utensils as soon as possible so our staff can clean and sanitize them in plenty of time to for the next day’s breakfast.
Enjoy your stay! We look forward to your visit.
