BASS LAKE — Two popular local resorts have opted to postpone opening this season due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Miller’s Landing and The Forks Resort both announced Thursday their opening day will now be April 10.
“In the best interest of our employees, customers and our community, we have decided to postpone opening day to Friday, April 10,” said a message on Miller’s Facebook page.
“We are taking this situation very seriously and feel strongly that if we all act swiftly and aggressively to contain the spread of this virus, things can get back to normal sooner,” the post added. “Our cabins will remain open at this time and we will continue to sanitize all surfaces to insure the safety of our guests. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC and World health Organization, but hope to be fully operational or as close to it as possible by April 10th.”
“We have fresh air to share and we are looking forward to a Great Summer,” the post ended.
“The health and safety of our employees, guests, and all The Forks Family is our first and most important priority,” that Bass Lake business’s latest Facebook post said Thursday.
“With that in mind, we have decided to postpone our opening for the 2020 season. We did not make this decision lightly and hope to bring Forks Burgers and JOY to you all very soon.”
The Forks’ new “tentative” opening date is April 10, according to the owners.
“We will continue to monitor developments as they come,” said today’s post. “Let’s all do our part to slow the spread of this virus. Until then, take this time to spend quality time with family and stay safe out there!”
