Restaurants closing early at Mt. Hood Meadows due to COVID precautions and some noncompliant guests

Categories: COVID Guest Connection Meadows Cares Media Center

Twilight at Mt. Hood MedowsWe are not immune to the surging Omicron COVID variant wave which most of the country is experiencing. Meadows follows very strict protocols, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Oregon Health Authority, which encourage team members to report symptoms and test when they feel they may have been exposed. Meadows provides COVID-specific sick leave for team members to use so they can stay at home and isolate rather than come to work and potentially spread the virus to other team members.

Due to suspected off-premise exposures, a number of our culinary team has been asked to quarantine and as a result, we’ve made the difficult but appropriate decision to temporarily discontinue evening restaurant operations.
