Special COVID-Related Terms of Service v.5.28.2020
- Individuals exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 are not permitted to enter TGD. TGD reserves the right to deny entrance to any camper which it determines, in its exclusive discretion, exhibits any such symptoms.
- Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 and can demonstrate that they have fulfilled applicable CDC-recommended quarantining periods may enter TGD.
- Individuals that have been exposed to COVID-19 and are not showing symptoms must await the CDC-recommended 14-day quarantining period with no symptoms in order to subsequently enter TGD.
- Individuals who develop symptoms while staying at TGD must immediately proceed to their primary residence and obtain care from there. If anyone in your camping group exhibits COVID-related symptoms, you agree to inform TGD management who will inform the local Health Department and request their advice on how to proceed.
- Everyone on the property, including children under your supervision, must practice social distancing in accordance with the recommendations of the State of New Jersey from time to time.
- During Phase One (as mandated by Executive Order in NJ): All public amenities will be closed. This includes the playgrounds, all common area tables, benches, the Barn, the outdoor games, boats, gazebo, laundry room, anything considered an “attractive nuisance”, and finally all TGD originally scheduled events. To the extent that the State of NJ orders these different items available, we will outline a plan for use, and open them as soon as we determine it is appropriate.
- Gatherings beyond the boundaries of your campsite are permitted, in parallel with NJ rules for gathering size (250).
The dog park will remain open, but may be used solely by one family at a time, subject to a 15 minute time limit.
- TGD encourages everyone to wear face coverings at all times when they leave their trailer to be outside. TGD does not require the use of face coverings within the boundaries of your site, but once you are off of your site, your face covering must be visible (in your hand, or hanging around your neck for instance) so that if you come within 6 feet of another person you can quickly put it on; although TGD would rather see you to wear it the whole time.
- Trails will remain open, with 6 foot social distancing required.
- Golf carts are permitted, one family per cart, assuming you have a waiver on file. Social distancing guidelines continue to apply with respect to parties that you may encounter while on a golf cart; please travel sensibly with this in mind.
- Please continue to use the Doggie Pot stations, but use an extra bag to open and close the lid to avoid direct contact.
- Please do your “grocery” type shopping as much as possible in your hometown. We do not wish to strain the stores near TGD. Their supplies are for local Newton area residents.
- Many local restaurants have pick up service available if you desire to utilize their services.
- Maintenance staff will not perform non-emergency work on your site while you are occupying it.
- You are allowed to have outside vendors come in for urgent and required trailer repairs only. Any such visits must be pre-approved by the store staff, and the vendor must wear a face covering 100% of the time they are on TGD, must practice social distancing, and must abide by all CDC guidelines.
- As always, children 12 years old and younger MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times.
- Campfires are allowed at individual campsites.
TGD reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to eject any individual that does not adhere to any of these guidelines from TGD.
