How the Covid Cleaning differs from the normal way of cleaning!

 Since Fairview Manor B&B is a proud member of the CHLA (California Hotel and Lodging Association) we have been following their guidelines on the proper Covid cleaning. With the exception of "fogging" all rooms, we have not really altered our cleaning. We have always wiped down all surfaces with disinfected, aired rooms, washed at high temps and triple vacuum. 

Being at the "age" where we need to worry about exposure to the Covid Cooties (my Grandsons' words), we have been very careful. Signage is in place requiring guests to mask up it not vaccinated and to stay home if feeling unwell. 

Our Covid policy is published on our web site. As of this date, Santa Cruz no longer requires masks to be worn inside. There are businesses that require masks, so don't leave your mask at home! Together we can minimize exposure.

Come on June 15th 2021!

 Just one more day! 

California will be relaxing their current covid policies regarding face masks and social distancing. We are looking forward to being able to go to 100 percent capacity. 

The guests that stayed recently have all been wonderful and so excited to be able to travel, especially those who live but a few hours away, and we are excited to welcome them.

So welcome back one and all. We are ready and so is the State of California

 So much time has passed since my last blog ---- 2020 happened! 

The Covid pandemic did cause us to close for almost four months and with all the wedding venues closed in the area, business was slow. Then the CVZ fire caused the evacuation of the entire San Lorenzo Valley. It was interesting to go from a large home to a hotel room. Needless to say Murphy didn't quite understand why she was unable to go outside and lay on the grass! Her first elevator ride was almost her last, she didn't like it one single bit. There were so many fellow Valley people staying at the hotel, it was nice to know we weren't alone...When we were allowed to return after 12+ days, it was an emotional drive home. Entering through Scotts Valley, banners and signs welcomed us back --- it then became a tearful drive the next few miles. With all the power outages the Valley experiences, it was nice to know we had power to come home to and no loss of refrigeration! 

No amount of words can express our gratitude to the Volunteer Firefighters of Ben Lomond who held the line and made sure the fire did not go any further. SLV strong is the new mantra
