Covid-19 Updates

Update: 10/20/20: If you are coming in from any of the states listed in the NYS quarantine ban please do not make a reservation. If you do, I will not accept your reservation and will either issue you a refund (minus a processing fee) or postpone your stay to a later date when your state is removed from the list:

Requirements for quarantining if coming from: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut (non-essential interstate travel discouraged), Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Guam, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey (non-essential interstate travel discouraged), New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania (non-essential interstate travel discouraged), Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

This can change, see in

What do they mean to quarantine:
- You have to stay in your home, hotel room or wherever you decided to spend the quarantine.
- If it is one person, that person needs to have separate room, and bathroom.
- If it is a couple, family, etc., they need to have their own room & bathroom.
- They need to have access to a way to wash their hands (i.e., a sink).
- If it's a group and a person in that group becomes symptomatic, that person needs to isolate from the rest of the group, and that person needs to wear a face mask.
- Food needs to come to them--they cannot go to a store or restaurant.
- Garbage can be disposed of as usual.
- There needs to be a way to check for temperature and symptoms of the people in quarantine.
- They need to notify the hospital/doctors if they start to become more symptomatic and may need medical assistance.


Because of the continuing pandemic, we are only going to have one room available for booking through the end of October (and possibly longer). We know that sharing a bathroom is not ideal under these circumstances.

But - if you are a family who needs both rooms, please give us a call and we can make the other room available to you.

We have focused our attention to increase our standard cleaning routine with more proactive and protective methods. We remain committed to upholding the highest levels of cleanliness and have taken an extra level of sanitary precautions so you feel comfortable during your stay at the Ginger Cat.

If you already have a reservation and start to show symptoms of the Virus, please contact us immediately. We can either give you a refund (minus a service charge) or change your stay to a later date.

Below outlines our effective response procedures to help us continue to provide a safe, clean and welcoming Inn for all:

  1. Self check-in by guests upon arrival. Guests will be sent instructions, via email, with all the information needed to check-in. This will limit interaction between them and staff.
  2. Disposable plates, cups and utensils will be used
  3. Social distancing will be encouraged
  4. Cats will, unfortunately, be off limits
  5. Frequent hand-washing is recommended
  6. Enhanced Environmental Cleaning
    • Focus on disinfecting, which includes routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces throughout the B&B
    • Disposable disinfecting wipes so that commonly used surfaces ( for example: doorknobs, handrails, tables and countertops) can be cleaned quickly, efficiently and disinfected throughout the day
    • Increased cleaning of the bathroom and common areas
    • We have added disposable disinfecting wipes in strategic areas throughout the B&B and in the bedrooms for guest use.
    • Hand sanitizer has been placed throughout the common areas

As much as we like to interact with our B&B guests, we will be limiting that interaction for the health and safety of all.

And - if a guest exhibits any signs of coughing, sneezing, etc. we have the right to insist he/she get checked out at the local hospital and to terminate their stay at the B&B.

Thanks for understanding.

You must reschedule if you've exhibited any signs of the Corona Virus 14 days prior to your arrival
