There's a safer side to our shore. Local businesses are working hard to keep everyone safe.
We're staying safe for all of us. We all have a role in keeping each other safe. Our shops, restaurants, hotels, and attractions are playing theirs.
Dining at your favorite spot isn't quite what it used to be. Everyone is adapting and changing.
Beachcrest Brewing, located at the Salishan Marketplace, has been a warrior when adjusting to restrictions and precautions. They created a to-go window for growler fills and even made hand-delivered beer runs. You'll find no contact purchasing, re-arranged interior seating, and a large patio with heaters and fire pits. Squatchsami food cart opened The Outpost adjacent to Beachcrest, where you can enjoy their delicious food in a newly renovated seating area with fantastic views of Salishan Golf Course. You can even order your food online to avoid people and contact for payment. They host vendor pop-ups inside and have created more outdoor seating for both themselves and Beachcrest. Both have hand sanitizing stations upon entering and require masks unless sitting at your table, which are placed six feet apart from others.
Whether it's a hotel, motel, bed and breakfast, or vacation home, those making your stay more comfortable also have your safety in mind.
The Coho Oceanfront Lodge has been diligent in following reopening guidelines and thoughtful in creating a space that is safe for those who come to stay. Recreation facilities remain closed, along with their dine-in breakfast area, which offers select to-go foods. You'll find fire pits roaring each night, with social distancing enforced. Plexiglass barriers at the front desk and a contactless check-in/check-out process keep interactions between staff and guests safe. Employees take precautions very seriously and are required to wear proper PPE along with daily temperature checks to ensure no one is working while ill. Guest rooms are rigorously sanitized and disinfected using EPA registered products, and stayover service has been suspended for guests who are staying more than one night. Masks are required in all public spaces and hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the property. The Coho has proven to use many measures to keep guests, staff, and the community safe. When you’re ready to stay, they’ll be there to welcome you with (physically distanced) open arms.
With so many things to see and do when you come to the Coast, it's important to feel and stay safe while having fun.
The Bijou Theatre has been around since 1937, and Keith and Besty Altomare aren’t willing to let it end here. While under restrictions, which kept them closed, they were able to bring the movie experience home through virtual cinema and curbside pick up of their famous movie theater popcorn. Once they could welcome guests back to the theatre, they immediately implemented safety protocols. You'll be welcomed behind a layer of plexiglass and staff will retrieve your concessions mask on and gloved up. To enforce social distancing and minimize contact, only up to 30 of their 120 seats are being used at a time and there are only two showings each day. There is a one direction system throughout the theatre and the bathroom is limited to one person at a time. An online reservation system will secure your favorite seat, and masks are required unless eating or drinking. An e-Mister electrostatic disinfectant sprayer is used twice a day after each show, along with disinfecting everything in between, including the lobby, bathroom, counters, seats, and door handles. The Bijou Theatre is the only indoor theater open within 100 miles right now, and they have worked hard to make guests feel safe to enjoy their theatre experience.
