Ebola Coming to America

October 30th, 2014 by Deborah Gold

mThe Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast Inn is taking extra precautions to protect our guests from potential illnesses.  As the Innkeeper and Registered Nurse, I am a big fan of staying healthy and keeping folks safe. The flu season is about to begin which kills thousands of people each year.  With the recent development of Ebola Coming to America, we have decided to implement some new policies at the Hoyt House.  Daily sanitizing of all doorknobs inside and outside each room & all public excess areas. Hand Sanitizer is available in the public areas and public bathroom.  Each room will now have Lysol Spray and Hand Sanitizer in each room.

A few other tips to keep you healthy:

1-When going to the grocery store, take two wipes that are available at the store. One to wipe the bar on the cart, and then use the second one to wipe your hands before you get into your car. 2-When dining out, use your personal pen to sign the check. 3-Push open doors with your shoulder or elbow.  4-When hand washing make sure after washing your hands you do not touch the handles to turn off the water. Dry your hands first, then use the towel to turn off the water, keeping your hands clean and not re-contaminating your hands.  5- Remember in PUBLIC AREAS where ever you touch, thousands of people have also touched. 6-So escalators you a shirt cuff or elbow, public railings, public bathroom doors & knobs, the bank pen & counters, the ATM machine use a pen or pencil when able. 7-The doctors office, don a pair of disposable gloves. Note: that the flu is communicable within 6 feet from a person coughing or sneezing who has the flu.  Keep tissues on hand and get your FLU shot! Remember to keep hand sanitizer in your car and don’t bring the bugs home with you!

Have a healthy holiday season and we hope to see you at The Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast Inn located on beautiful Amelia Island.

9/11 A Day To Remember

September 11th, 2011 by Deborah Gold

10 years  ago today my life changed and  America will never be the same. We lost over 12 residence in my hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey and Bergen County lost 100′s of men & women that day. It is almost unreal, watching the towers get hit. I clearly remember screaming as the first tower fell from the sky almost in slow motion. I must have watched the towers come down over 200 times that day. Not believing it really happened. So many lives changed that day it is hard to know someone who wasn’t effected that day. I ran to school to pick up my son, and held David so tight he could barely breathe.

 I could not watch the services today or the speeches from people who lost loved ones and the towers slamming into the foundations that once supported the massive structures. People jumping, screaming, dying, surviving Countless firefighters, EMS, Police, running, saving, helping and covering bodies. It will never fade in my mind. I did not loose anyone close to me that day. But many people did and I can not fathom their pain. The nightmares must be countless and seemingly endless. My heart goes out to all that have lost loved ones, friends and family. Knowing that America will never be the land of the free as it once was is now a fact that will forever be with us. Peace
