The safety of our owners and residents is our highest priority and the Lake Placid Club Lodges is committed to providing accurate and updated information about public health conditions in the Lake Placid local area.
NY State remains on PAUSE through May 15, 2020. All non-essential workers are directed to work from home, and everyone is required to wear a face covering and maintain a 6-foot distance from others in public. In the current Stay-at-Home phase, all non-essential travel is prohibited.
Now is not the time to vacation in the Lake Placid area. Many of the area’s key tourism attractions are closed including restaurants and bars, arts and cultural facilities, entertainment venues, and sports arenas. Most popular annual events have been postponed until next year.
While ‘escaping’ to the great outdoors and more rural parts of the state may seem like a logical idea, the Adirondack Region’s rural destinations and mountain communities have limited medical facilities and personnel whose services need to be reserved for their residents.
Please only visit areas within 10 miles of your home and avoid very popular or crowded locations where social distancing may be difficult. Limit group activities to members of your household.
That being said…
New York State parks and historic sites have been reopened, with restrictions. Check online for sites in your local area for further information.
Trails in the High Peaks area continue to be open, though NYS DEC advises hikers to wait until mud season is over before hiking at higher elevations (2,500 feet or more). Practice trail safety etiquette while recreating outdoors and visit parks responsibly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some golf courses have been reopened. Call ahead to find out if your favorite spot is one of the courses approved for reopening.
Thank you for doing your part to keep the Adirondacks safe. We look forward to welcoming you to Lake Placid when it is safe to travel once again.
