Does The Mountaineers have a flu policy?

Yes, The Mountaineers seeks to provide the most enjoyable, safe environment for all program center and lodge guests and members.

Please note that the Mountaineers reserves the right to restrict members or guests from using its facilities, or may require members or guests to leave who clearly exhibit flu-like symptoms (or symptoms of similar illnesses which public health authorities have warned are presenting a significant risk of transmission) from using our facilities, like our lodges or clubhouses.

Flu-like symptoms include, but are not limited to severe or sustained coughing or sore throat, a fever of 100 degrees or higher, chills, body aches, runny nose, headaches, fatigue, diarrhea or vomiting. Members and guests who have had the flu (or similar illnesses identified by public health authorities) are expected to refrain from using the facilities until they have been symptom free for at least 1 day without the use of medication. If you are exhibiting any of the above symptoms please do not attend any Mountaineer functions.

For the safety of all, if you are beginning to experience these symptoms before a clubhouse event or lodge visit, please revise your plans. Many of our lodges are located in areas of extremely limited accessibility, especially during the winter. Evacuation of someone with an illness may be problematical, especially in adverse weather conditions which may occur any time of the year in the mountains.

Any members or guests who have been restricted from using Mountaineer facilities, or need to cancel their use of our facilities under these circumstances will receive a full refund of the unused fees paid to the Mountaineers for their stay at the lodge, or for an event at the clubhouses.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
