Health & Safety

Offering Peace — and Peace of Mind

The Lodge at St. Edward State Park is committed to the health and safety of our guests, team members, and community. We strictly adhere to the latest guidelines, requirements, and restrictions put out by local, state, and federal governments and organizations. We’re also connected to hospitality-industry leaders who are solving today’s health concerns and researching how to anticipate any future challenges. 

Through our management company, Columbia Hospitality, we've partnered with Ecolab, a global leader in infection prevention, to take our already stringent safety and sanitation protocols to the next level through the Columbia Clean program. Columbia Clean is an elevated set of health, hygiene, safety and sanitation standards developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to create a cleaner, safer environment for our guests.
