We hope this finds you and your family well. You’ve probably been wondering what is happening at Harbor Ridge, specifically regarding COVID-19 and its impact on your pending vacation. Please know yours and our safety and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. As this virus continues around the country and our world, we are following State Executive Orders, Maine CDC Guidelines, and federal CDC recommendations to help prevent the spread of the virus.
In State Owners have been allowed to come to Harbor Ridge for their week of ownership since June 1, 2020. We ask that you let us know whether or not you will be arriving! We have been preparing for your arrival, as we follow the recommendations of the CDC and the government. It has been an overwhelming few weeks, and we ask for your patience as we put new protocols in place.
As you arrive, one member of the family may check-in with the Front Desk. We will provide you a welcome packet, and it will provide your unit number, internet access, restaurant information, and emergency numbers.
The Clubhouse amenities will be closed for the time being. Staff will be available by calling the Front Desk from your townhouse or stopping by the Front Desk. The outside amenities may be used at your own risk.
We have amped up our sanitizing of your unit, and all used linens (including sheets, spreads, blankets, pillow protectors, mattress pads, towels, and shower curtains) will be completely replaced each week. The diaries have been removed, and the unit book can be viewed on our website.
Unfortunately, it is recommended that we not host our breakfast, our wine and cheese social hour, and our S’mores activity. You are welcome to use the fire pit at your leisure within our posted guidelines.
Some owners in our database have out-of-state addresses due to being snowbirds from the State of Maine. If you are a Maine snowbird and you will have completed isolation in Maine for 14-days, you are welcome to come for your week. If you plan to self-quarantine at friends or family or in a campground for 14 days prior to your week, you may come; however, you should bring documentation stating of your arrival date here in Maine (e.g. toll booth receipt, campground receipt). Please let us know immediately that you plan to come for your week.
If you have friends or family in Maine, you may allow them to use your week. You just need to call us with their name, address, phone number, and email address. Advance notice is greatly appreciated.
We understand the disappointment that many of you may be experiencing, as your out-of-state family members may not be able to vacation with you at this time. For out-of-state visitors, visitors must either quarantine for 14-days in Maine and bring their own provisions with them, or visitors may obtain a negative COVID-19 test from a specimen taken no longer than 72 hours prior to arrival to forgo the 14-day quarantine upon arrival in Maine. This test indicates that, even when coming from areas with a higher prevalence of the disease than Maine’s, such visitors are unlikely to have COVID-19 and to spread it to Maine residents and other visitors. Individuals may be tested in Maine, but they must quarantine while awaiting the results. Please review the Keep Maine Healthy plan, which aims to protect the health of Maine people and visitors while allowing the opportunity for people to visit Maine and support Maine small businesses. All non-exempted guests to any Maine commercial lodging establishment, campground, seasonal rental, or short-term rental are required to complete a Certificate of Compliance prior to their stay. Harbor Ridge guests must present this completed form at check-in. As COVID-19 is ever changing in our nation, please understand that at any moment, the travel restrictions may change multiple times throughout the summer and fall. Keep informed by viewing the Keep Maine Healthy website.
We are all in this together! Wash your hands, practice physical distancing, and stay healthy!!! We love our owners, and we appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and patience during these crazy times! We look forward to seeing you all again safely and soon.
Many happy vacations,
Harbor Ridge Management and the Board of Directors
