Coronavirus Preparedness

Dear Sunrise Ranch Guests and Participants:

Sunrise Ranch is dedicated to keeping our guests and community safe and healthy throughout the duration of the Coronavirus crisis. Even as we enter into 2021 with effective vaccines being made available to some of the population, we realize that this is not the time to let down our guard and relax our stance on the protocols that we KNOW help to keep us safe. We are dedicated to doing all we can to keep it that way until this crisis is over.

Steps We Are Taking

We are closely monitoring the information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Colorado health officials. Our decisions are based on their guidance on sanitation and best practices to prevent the spread of the virus. Beyond masks, social distancing and washing hands, etc., we are going the extra mile to ensure that our guests, employees and community members are safe here at Sunrise Ranch.

Our Kitchen

Executive Chef Barrett Barth has a deep professional background that includes extensive training in health and sanitation. His kitchen has consistently earned the highest ratings from the Larimer County Health Department. He is now taking these additional steps:

  • More frequent hand washing for kitchen staff
  • Upgrading our hand soap to one that contains antimicrobial agents
  • More frequent disinfecting of working surfaces.

In addition, we serve nutrient-dense food that helps to build healthy immune systems.

Continuing in 2021, we are offering takeout meals to be picked up by our guests who want to avoid dining with a large group of people.

Our Cleaning Staff

Our cleaning staff is taking these steps:

  • Increasing the frequency and rigor of the cleaning of common areas—including our Accommodations Building and Pavilion, and especially the food line, Dining Room and Living Room
  • Increased cleaning rounds in guest rooms
  • Implementing the use of chemicals recommended by the CDC
  • Offering additional cleaning services as requested
  • In addition to the cleaning already mentioned, we are providing CDC-recommended cleaning supplies to guests to use to wipe off surface areas in their rooms.

Other Steps

  • We are making hand sanitizer available in all of the guest rooms, as well as all common areas and meeting rooms.
  • We require all staff, residents and guests to:
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing and blowing the nose
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If a tissue is not available, the next best hygienic option is to cough and sneeze into one’s sleeve or shirt.
  • We require that all staff, residents and guests avoid common areas if they become sick.

Like you and people around the world, we are continuing to do what we do best. As we do, we are taking the steps needed to make sure our guests feel safe, comfortable and welcome.

Feel free to contact our Events Director, Keahi Ewa, if you would like to speak with us about our current protocols and how we might help to create a safe event for you.

Thank you!
