COVID-19 YOUR TRAVEL
Morning Star Bed & Breakfast of Corrales is NM Safe certified and has adopted the New Mexico “COVID Safe Practices” as our standard operating procedure as a measure to ensure we operate a safe environment. The advantage of adopting the New Mexico Safe Certifed Operating Procedures / COVID Safe Practices is that our organization is updated about state mandates, national lodging associations recommended practices and new CDC guidelines.
14-DAY QUARANTINE DAY REQUIREMENT
All states and territories not deemed low-risk are deemed high-risk. However, individuals who can show documentation of a valid negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before or after entry into New Mexico are exempt from the 14-day quarantine requirement, regardless of the state from which they have traveled. Persons who have undergone a COVID-19 test shall self-isolate while awaiting results of their test. This exemption does not apply to persons entering New Mexico after traveling outside of the United States.

OCCUPANCY & SPACE PLANNING
Social distancing is a concept that is natural to our brand. The bed & breakfast is space planned and designed for luxury accommodations, so the design ratios allow for more space. Our guests have the use of private usable areas throughout the home. It's very easy for guest social distance. The innkeepers have a separate suite that is not part of the bed & breakfast.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reduced our occupancy to what the state of New Mexico mandates. We have also adjusted our calendar to avoid bottlenecks. Whole-house bookings are for those in a group, such as a family or a work-related group. Our whole-house booking is a hybrid of privacy and bed and breakfast services. Innkeepers still have an active role in and around the property.
MASK WEARING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING
Masks are worn by staff and guests per the New Mexico mandate.
To ensure social distancing for breakfast;
Individual seating for breakfast with the social distancing of at least 6 feet between tables.
Single plating for guests (no family-style serving)
Hand sanitizer dispensers are located at primary guest entrances and contact areas for visitors and guests.
