The Inn is open to guests who are coming from areas where non-essential travel is allowed by local or state guidelines. If you are coming from an area where non-essential travel is not recommended or is restricted by local or state guidelines, unfortunately we are not able to accommodate your visit at this time. If you are experiencing COVID symptoms, stay home. We will be taking some extra precautions regarding social distancing in the Wren Room (the dining room where breakfast is served), and our innkeeper, Will Hunter, will be wearing a mask, keeping his distance, and keeping highly used surfaces disinfected. We will be asking you to wear a mask in the hallway and wash your hands regularly. The main monastery building (including the chapel) remains closed, and guests cannot have any contact with the sisters. We will continue to adjust our response to COVID-19 in order to keep the vulnerable population at the Monastery of St. Gertrude healthy and safe. Please keep yourself healthy and do your part to protect those around you. Questions or concerns can be directed to Will Hunter, Innkeeper, at inn@stgertrudes.org or 208-451-4321.
