 As a very small team Andy & I have decided to limit our face to face interaction, just while Omicron plays out on the West Coast. If either of us “go down with Omicron” we will need to close the park, so this seems like the best way to mitigate against that risk. Our housekeeping team are working split shifts and separate days as the risk increases, and our groundsman is happy in his “Bubble of One”.
