Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave Operations Regarding COVID19

March 23, 2020 04:00 p.m. CST

JELLYSTONE PARK MAMMOTH CAVE TEMPORARILY CLOSING UNTIL APRIL 13

Hello everyone,

As the coronavirus (COVID19) epidemic worsens, we all need to do our part to “flatten the curve” and slow its spread. Accordingly, we have decided to temporarily close Jellystone Park™ Mammoth Cave beginning on Friday, March 27. We currently plan to reopen on Monday, April 13th, but we will be constantly monitoring the situation and will delay this date if it looks to be advisable and in the interests of public health.

This is certainly not a decision we wanted to make or one that we are taking lightly but we feel that it is the socially responsible thing for us to do. Our priority is always the safety and well-being of guests such as you and your family, our employees, and our community.

We will continue to monitor the current situation and will provide you with updates via our website (JellystoneMammothCave.com) and our social media channels as they become available.

Thank you for your understanding and for your ongoing support of Jellystone Park™ Mammoth Cave. We look forward to hosting you and returning to “business as usual” as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Bill and Kay Pott

UPDATE Regarding Effects of COVID19 on Jellystone Park™ Mammoth Cave

Jellystone Park™ Mammoth Cave is still open for business with limited hours and amenities. We are following guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Kentucky while remaining open to the public.

Per CDC guidelines, we ask that guests do not congregate in groups of 10 or more people and that guest’s practice “social distancing” by staying at least six feet away from other individuals as much as possible. We would also like to remind all guests to wash their hands often and when doing so, to utilize soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds. These actions will help protect the safety of all of us.

Additionally, Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave is taking the following steps in accordance with the best practices being shared by leading health and government agencies:

  • All playground equipment, including swings and slides, are being washed with a solution of at least 60% alcohol and/or hospital-grade Ecolab products daily.
  • Mini golf course equipment is being cleaned daily with a solution with at least 60% alcohol-based solution and/or hospital-grade Ecolab products.
    • We are utilizing a “clean” clubs bucket and a “dirty” clubs bucket to ensure different guests do not use the same clubs without them first being sanitized.
  • Surfaces within all available cabins are being cleaned with hospital grade disinfectant Ecolab products. We will also provide a 60% alcohol/40% water-based solution spray for any guests to keep and utilize in their cabin during their stay if desired.
  • All bathrooms are being checked and cleaned hourly using 60% alcohol-based solution and/or hospital grade Ecolab products.

Our office hours have changed to limit the amount of guest and employee traffic in various buildings. Hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol is available throughout the following buildings during all open hours:

  • The Ranger Station is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST
    • Only one door is being unlocked each day for guest and employee usage.
    • We are cleaning all surfaces and door handles after each guest or employee enters or exits the building.
  • The Huckleberry Knob/Retail/Camp Store doors are closed, but guests who wish to make a purchase can enter through the Ranger Station door.

In an effort to be as transparent as possible, please be aware that a case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Warren County on March 18th, 2020. The Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Andy Beshear, released that information that afternoon. Warren County is one of several counties that border Barren County, the county where Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave and Cave City reside. As of March 19th, 2020, there are no known case of COVID-19 in Barren County, KY.

We will provide additional information and updates as warranted. As always, thank you for your support of Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave.

MARCH 17th, 2020 11:44 a.m. CST
