Spider Mountain is open daily, weather permitting. Spider Mountain has been actively monitoring Texas and Burnet County’s response efforts and guidance for COVID-19. The health and safety of our guests and employees remain our central focus and we are committed to minimizing the impacts of COVID-19 exposure in our community. The resort staff is working side-by-side with public health experts including the Centers for Disease Control and will continue to do so. As of March 12, 2020: Our existing lodging cancellation policy remains intact; however, we are honoring all refunds for guests who have pre-purchased travel insurance. All pre-purchased lift tickets, equipment rentals and lessons are non-refundable.
If you are feeling ill with symptoms similar to those associated with COVID-19:
- Manage your symptoms at home the same way you manage other cold symptoms. We want to reduce the risk of transmission, so to the extent possible, people with flu-like symptoms should remain at home.
- If you need medical care, contact your primary care provider and schedule a visit. Let them know that you are concerned you might have COVID-19.
- Only contact 9-1-1 for emergencies requiring immediate life-saving care and let them know if you are concerned you might have COVID-19.
- Restrict visits to the hospital emergency room or urgent care – only individuals needing immediate care should visit these facilities. If you must visit an ER or urgent care facility, call ahead and let them know that you are concerned you might have COVID-19.
Protecting yourself and others from COVID-19There is no vaccine for COVID-19, but there are many actions you can take to protect yourself from getting COVID-19. These are the same actions that can protect you from getting any respiratory illness.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home when you are sick, and keep your children at home when they are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- The most recent guidance from the CDC suggests that people at a higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19 (older adults and those who have severe chronic medical conditions) should exercise additional vigilance.
