COVID-19 Procedures

About the Certificate of Compliance

Please note, starting June 26 guests arriving at The Colonial Inn will be required to sign a Certificate of Compliance.  This form is a part of the state’s Keep Maine Healthy approach and must be signed by all guests over the age of 18.  Residents of Maine, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Vermont are exempt from signing this form. A copy of the form can be viewed here and we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the requirements prior to traveling. The state of Maine is strongly encouraging visitors to be tested and receive results in their home state before traveling to Maine. Websites like Get Tested COVID-19 show local testing options nationwide. If you are unable to schedule a test prior to your visit, COVID-19 tests are available in Maine without a referral from a medical professional. If you have any questions about the Certificate of Compliance or the Keep Maine Healthy initiative, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us as we are more than happy to help make this process as simple and straightforward as possible. 

About our COVID-19 Procedures

We want to assure you that the health and safety of our guests and our staff is our top priority. Below is a list of the procedures you can expect to see when you stay with us at The Colonial Inn.

GENERAL CLEANING / PROPERTY INFORMATION

Hand sanitizing stations will be located throughout the property.

Disposable masks will be available upon request.

Staff members will be doing extra rounds of sanitizing high touch points like the elevator, handrails, door knobs and common area furniture.

Staff will be given daily health checks by our General Manager ensuring all staff are healthy. Any staff with flu-like symptoms will be placed under quarantine for a minimum of two weeks.

All staff will be wearing protective face masks while on the property.

Breakfast treats will be made available in the lobby each morning and only consist of pre-packaged items.

Our pool opened on June 6 and we have designated sitting areas stationed around the pool. When those areas are full, we ask that guests refrain from using the pool until a sitting area is vacated. Our staff will clean and sanitize each sitting area in between guest use.

 

ARRIVALS / CHECK-IN 

Check-in will begin at 3pm to give our team extra time to clean, sanitize and disinfect rooms.

We will be limiting the check-in area to two arrivals at a time to minimize the number of people gathering in our lobby. We ask that all guests remain outside the main doors until called upon to check-in.

Check-in will be fast tracked with minimal contact with keys and a preliminary bill waiting for guests in a basket.

 

DEPARTURES / CHECK-OUT 

Final bills will be emailed upon check-out.

 

HOUSEKEEPING 

In order to provide our staff and guests with the safest possible environment, we will forgo stay over housekeeping services. We will stock your room appropriately for the entire stay with extra towels, soaps and coffee.  Upon arrival, we will discuss options for additional requests and linen exchanges.

All rooms will be sprayed with a Peroxide Multi-Surface Disinfectant Cleaner that has a 99.999% elimination rate and is proven to eliminate the COVID-19 virus in as little as 45 seconds.
