You must always stay seated at your end of the table.  Face coverings and six-foot distancing of visitors and residents will be enforced by staff during your entire visit.

  • Any other “drop offs” should be clearly labeled, in a paper bag and must be left at The Lodge entrance on the table to the left of the door. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE BUILDING. You may phone the concierge desk at 860-824-2611 to notify them of your drop off.
