COVID-19 Procedures

Swift House Inn and Jessica’s Restaurant staff has always been dedicated to providing you with the best experience possible. We care about your health, safety, and comfort.

We have rewritten our procedures with you in mind: keeping you healthy while maintaining our high standards of cleanliness and sanitation, in both lodging and food service. Our new procedures are based on the guidance of the CDC, AHLA Stay Safe Program, Select Registry’s Select Safe Program, and Vermont’s Department of Health, among others.

The general details of our COVID-19 procedures are listed below. These procedures may be changed as the coronavirus situation evolves. Please feel free to ask us for more details on any of these, and be assured that we are doing everything possible to keep you and ourselves safe and healthy. We want you to stay and dine with us and to feel safe in doing so!
