In Milledgeville, your safety and well-being are our top priorities. As our hospitality partners across the community continue implementing new and enhanced protocols to better protect you, we believe #OneInAMilly moments await.  Below are highlights of protocols from our various industry partners and information on what you can expect during your upcoming visit. Together, let’s adventure as safely as possible. 


As essential members of our business community, our hotels have led the way in establishing enhanced cleaning standards. The American Hotel & Lodging Association has launched a Stay Safe initiative and corporate brands have also launched their own innovative health and safety measures to decrease risk of transmission..

New procedures you may notice while in town include remote check-in abilities,  individually sealed breakfast items, increased sanitation, and decluttered paper interactions and amenities. Review the corporate brand standards and new protocols in the below links.  



Many of our Milledgeville restaurants have reopened their doors and eagerly await your return. Using the social distancing guidelines established by the governor's office, restaurants are once again open for dine-in service under compliance with 39 state-mandated guidelines. Standard operational requirements include screening workers for fever and respiratory illness, spacing dining area seating by six feet, increasing workplace sanitation, and wearing masks and gloves as appropriate.

You may also notice extra procedures such as limited capacity, guest temperature checks, enhanced bathroom sanitation, printed menus and minimized cash exchanges. 

Not looking to dine-in right now? Many of our Milledgeville restaurants are still continuing to offer curbside and take-out. Call to place your order!


Our local attractions look forward to welcoming guests on property and have been busy preparing new measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Details of each location's health and safety implementations are included below.
