Potential patrons of Mohawk Mountain, a ski resort in Connecticut, are calling to inquire about an outbreak happening 60 miles away – at Mohonk Mountain House. According to the Register Citizen, Mohawk Mountain staff are being asked about illnesses and clean-up.
Mohawk Mountain wants to ensure its customers that they don’t have to worry about a virus outbreak in their lodge. In a post on Facebook Saturday, Mohawk employees pointed out that they are often confused for a New York hotel called The Mohonk Mountain House.“We’ve been getting some confusing phone calls, but have figured out what the problem is,” the post stated. “The Mohonk Mountain House was struck with an outbreak of the norovirus, and had to close for a week.”
In related news, Mohonk Mountain House reopened in time for Valentines Day festivities.
“The Mountain House has been thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom and is looking beautiful,” Mohonk marketing director Nina Smiley said in an email Friday afternoon.
Ulster County Health Commissioner Dr. Carol Smith said he department had signed off on the sanitation effort, which the resort conducted voluntarily.
“They did everything we and state officials advised them to do to insure the facility was disinfected,” Smith said.
