Guest Ranch Vacation Guidelines & Protocols

2021 Bar W Guest Ranch COVID-19 Policy

We are thankful to all of the guests that made 2020 a successful season despite having to navigate this difficult time. We continue to keep our guests and staff health top of mind with our 2021 Covid-19 Guidelines and Protocols that are effective as of May 4, 2021. Bar W will be calling all 2021 guests two days prior to arrival to check on their status and all guests will receive our 2021 COVID Policy info one week prior to arrival. 

Airport Pick-Up Policy

  • Bar W staff will take guest’s temperatures (including children) at the airport upon guest pick-up.
  • If guests do not have a temperature (below 100.4 degrees), they are welcome to remove their masks at that time if they would like, and do not need to wear it in the vehicle during the drive back to the ranch.
  • If guests do have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or above, we will not be able to house them onsite. Staff members will not allow these guests into the ranch vehicles. If there are any issues or concerns, guests will have to call the ranch at (406) 863-9099 for further instruction and assistance.

Guest Policy

  • Guests must wear a mask upon arrival during check-in (unless guests have been picked up at the airport and have already had their temperature checked).
  • During guest check-in at the ranch, Bar W will take everyone’s temperature (including children) and all guests will have to complete a COVID-19 questionnaire.
  • Once a normal temperature is confirmed (below 100.4 degrees) and the completed COVID-19 questionnaire indicates there has been no contact with an infected person, each guest can decide if they want to wear a mask, or not, based on comfort level.
  • If a guest has a temperature of 100.4 degrees, or above, or has been in close contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19 (recently), we unfortunately cannot offer housing onsite. Guests can work with Bar W on alternate, offsite housing.
  • Sanitizer is available around the ranch. Washing hands frequently is highly encouraged.
  • Please be mindful of keeping your distance in small, tight spaces around other guests.
  • All children are required to get a temperature check. Children 5 and under are exempt from wearing a mask.

Staff Policy

  • All Bar W Staff must have a negative COVID test within three days prior to arrival or have a proof of vaccination.
  • Bar W Staff do not need to wear masks while at work.
  • Bar W Staff will log their daily temperature and oxygen levels at the front desk
  • If any of the Bar W Staff have a temperature over 100.4 degrees, they will need to immediately go for a test. They will be quarantined until their test results come back. If negative, they will return to work as normal. If the test is positive, they will quarantine in our specially designated “COVID Tent” for the CDC recommended amount time.
