Crieff Hills Reopening Plan
In the coming months Crieff Hills will follow the Ontario phased reopening plan. As information is released we will be updating this page. We believe that in this anxious time, we can serve you well by offering a safe and natural sanctuary. We closely follow the province’s guidelines and our Director Rev. Kristine, board and staff are working hard to ensure guest and community safety.
COVID-19 Vaccine Policy
Crieff Hills values good health and public safety and follows all mandates issued by the federal, provincial and municipal governments. As of April 1, every guest who visits our property is strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated. While mandates have been lifted, we still require masks to be worn in common areas including Maclean Hall and the office. All staff are fully vaccinated and we will continue to follow public health directives as they evolve.
Crieff Hills continues to be a place of refuge and renewal.
Our site remains well cared for.
We work hard to be good stewards of the land and buildings entrusted to us, and our staff are keeping everything clean and beautiful for you.
We are making financial decisions that will ensure the future of our shared mission.
The sudden lack of income was frightening when the pandemic began, but we moved quickly to prepare for what has proven to be a long-term closure. We were forced to say goodbye to some of our beloved staff and curtail almost all spending. Despite these measures, we are still in need of support for our ongoing fixed costs and your gifts would be gratefully received. See our Donate page (under Get Involved) for how to help.
We have increased our sanitation practices.
We are committed to enhancing safety measures based on the latest available information. This includes using cleaning products in accordance with health guidelines and posting hygiene instructions provided by our local health unit. Staff are provided with ample personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks and gloves.
We are finding new ways to serve.
Our new online store means you can enjoy frozen meals and soups, honey and honey products, farm fresh eggs, and specialty baked items. Chef Matthew prepares and packs every meal following stringent safety protocols including handwashing, face masks, and regularly sterilizing all surfaces and cooking equipment. Payment is received by e-transfer and porch pickup is easy.
