Coronavirus and Travel in the United States

Cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have been reported in all states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. CDC recommends you stay home as much as possible, especially if your trip is not essential, and practice social distancing especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness. Don’t travel if you are sick or travel with someone who is sick.


Considerations If You Must Travel

CDC recommends you stay home as much as possible and avoid close contact, especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness. If you must travel, there are several things you should consider before you go. Protect yourself and others during your trip: Clean your hands often. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub your hands together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoid close contact with others. Keep 6 feet of physical distance from others. Avoiding close contact is especially important if you are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19. Wear a cloth face covering in public. Cover coughs and sneezes. Pick up food at locations with drive-up facilities, curbside restaurant service, or stores. Do not dine in restaurants if that is prohibited by state or local guidance.

At Bread n Butter Antiques, the health and well-being of our guests, associates, and communities is our top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty everyone is currently experiencing with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to being responsive to the needs of our guests and associates as the situation moves into the first phase of opening our facilities.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Question: WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT COVID-19?

Answer: We are providing guest services to essential employees and families during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The health and safety of our guests and colleagues is our top priority. With this in mind and in compliance with the order from the Department of Health, we want to inform our guests of the following policy updates:

Our team of professionals begins each day with attention to detail, an exceptionally clean room, as well as a personal touch that tells our guests we know them, we have anticipated their needs, and we want everyone to have an exceptional visit.

The number of visitors to the facility, including exterior buildings or office space, will be limited to only those necessary for registered guests or associates performing work.

All individuals, visitors, guests or associates will be screened in advance of entering the facility. If a visitor, guest or associate answers “yes” to any of the following questions, they may not be permitted to access the facility:

  • Have you been confirmed positive for COVID-19?
  • Are you currently experiencing, or recently experienced, any acute respiratory illness symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath?
  • Have you been in close contact with any persons who have been confirmed positive for COVID-19?
  • Have you been in close contact with any persons who have traveled and are also exhibiting acute respiratory illness symptoms?

Site deliveries will be permitted but should be properly coordinated in line with established minimal contact and cleaning protocols. Delivery personnel should remain in their vehicles if at all possible. 

What is the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)? Coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. (CDC)
 
How is COVID-19 spread? There is much more to learn about how COVID-19 is spread and investigations are ongoing. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that mainly spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory viruses spread.
 
Watch for symptoms: People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

Fever or chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea
 
How can I help protect myself?
 
Practice safe hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette, including frequent hand washing and covering coughs, and frequently clean surfaces such as doorknobs and phones. Visit the CDC’s treatment and prevention page to learn about how to protect yourself from respiratory illnesses.

Plan - Prepare - Respond
+ COVID19 +
 
We perform research and data analysis in a concentrated effort to obtain vital information and data required to operate our small business on a daily basis. 

Today, luxury is evolving and our clients are increasingly shifting spend from products and services to experiences. This transition marks the biggest shift in our understanding of luxury and travel in the 21st century. 

Emergencies and problems can occur when we least expect them. It is important to be as prepared as possible when an emergency arises at our facility. A well thought out response plan is one of the cornerstones of an effective safety program—we owe this to every one of our guests and fellow associates.

Please note this is a rapidly evolving situation. We are regularly updating this page with key information as we receive it. We encourage guests to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a reliable source for the most updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.
 
We are starting our report with a prayer: Steer the ship of our life, good Lord, to your quiet harbour, where we can be safe from the storms of conflict. Show us the course we should take. Renew in us the gift of discernment, so that we can always see the right direction in which to go and give us the strength and the courage to choose the right course, even when the sea is rough and the waves are high, knowing that through enduring hardship and danger, in your name, we shall find comfort and peace. Amen.
 
COVID-19 is affecting 213 countries and territories around the world and 2 international conveyances. In America, all 50 States have phased reopening plans under the guidance of state and local government. The mortality rate has decreased since April 2020. 

As we align with reopening plans, we remind guests and associates to continue practicing social distancing and encourage those who are at high risk to please stay at home. Moving forward, we continue to monitor the public health crisis so that we can make decisions based on safety in the interest of guests and associates utilizing the best information available.

Today is the 195th day of quarantine. It has been 6 months and 11 days, including the end date, since a National Emergency was declared by the President of the United States on March 13th, 2020. Businesses in our region are permitted to reopen with reduced services based on state and local guidelines. The Department of State advises all U.S. citizens to read the country-specific Travel Advisories and U.S. Embassy COVID pages for updates on the impact of COVID-19 worldwide.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect countries differently. Challenges to any international travel at this time may include mandatory quarantines, travel restrictions, and closed borders. Foreign governments may implement restrictions with little notice, even in destinations that were previously low risk. If you choose to travel internationally, your trip may be severely disrupted, and it may be difficult to arrange travel back to the United States.

We currently maintain business operations in Pennsylvania and Delaware. A State of Emergency was declared by the Governors of Pennsylvania and Delaware.

MILLSBORO, DE – Delaware announced the delay in moving to Phase 3 of Delaware’s economic reopening. Masks must be worn in public. Indoor dining is permitted in Delaware. Businesses may be open with 60 percent capacity. As of September, the State of Emergency declared for Delaware will continue until further notice. Delaware public health continues to see a spike in new daily cases of COVID-19. Travelers to Delaware must quarantine for 14 days upon returning home in many states, please refer to your local and state guidelines.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – In Pennsylvania, masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home as part of the phased economic reopening plan. As a business in the Commonwealth we are permitted to conduct in-person operations during the disaster emergency. We take the necessary precautions to protect employees, families, and our community. Indoor gatherings of more than 25 people are currently prohibited. Indoor dining returned to Philadelphia in September 2020. Restaurants are operating at a reduced capacity. 
 
A Pennsylvania Supreme Court Judge ruled that actions taken by the Governor during the 60 day mandatory shutdown were unconstitutional as of September 2020. Our business applied for a waiver to operate during this time, but was denied. The waiver changed at least 10 different times in a 60 day period. Airbnb and the State of Pennsylvania allowed other Airbnb operations in Philadelphia to continue, at the same time our Philadelphia location was forced to close. 

These orders remain in effect due to a public health emergency as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. (CDC)
 
The purpose of our plan is to facilitate and organize employer and associate actions required to maintain operations. A well-developed operations plan and proper training whereby all associates understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan can result in fewer and less severe guest and associate injuries and prevent structural damage to the facility in the event of an emergency.
 
Detailed risk analysis concludes that COVID-19 is a highly contagious coronavirus with transmission research still in progress. Despite the similarity to influenza, using basic mathematics, we can determine that COVID-19 is spreading very quickly and not exactly the same as influenza. The faster the spread, the higher probability of an increase in the loss of human life for high risk individuals.
 
Based on scientific and medical data that is available to date, airborne transmission may be a risk factor for transmission. Airborne viruses have unique elements of transmission and the most important reason for wearing a face mask.
 
COVID-19 can maintain and survive on surfaces as well as in the air. Studies in a laboratory may not represent real life scenarios, however vital scientific research can provide us with guidance and direction when it comes to daily operations and preparedness.
 
Summary - please note that it is possible for someone to have COVID-19 and spread it to others, even if they have no symptoms. It is also possible to receive a negative test, but then contract the virus after you have been tested.

Risk management analysis shows that by following all guidance provided by the CDC for facility management and emergency response preparedness, we will be able to implement the necessary COVID-19 response initiatives. This effort will conclude once we are able to maintain normal business operations, based on federal and state regulations.
 
We review highly sensitive statistical data that is required for our risk management analysis.  WHY?  We have one reason - Insurance Liability - the mitigation of risk. Our risk management analysis is focused on avoidance. Risk management is important to our organization because without it, we are unable to define our objectives for the future. The goal of our risk management initiative is to make sure that our organization only takes the risks that will help achieve our primary objectives such as guest safety.

Risk professionals and consultants review data and statistics provided for all countries around the world with available data, as well as the data provided for The United States of America.

After 195 days, the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide is at 31.87 million as of Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Coronavirus Cases: 31,878,406
Deaths: 977,155
Recovered: 23,475,686

ACTIVE CASES
7,425,565 Currently Infected Patients
7,363,425 (99%) in Mild Condition
62,140 (1%) Serious or Critical
 
CLOSED CASES
24,452,841 Cases which had an outcome:
23,475,686 (96%) Recovered / Discharged
977,155 (4%) Deaths
 
Please note, since our team began monitoring this data, the following changes have occurred: The serious or critical percentage for active cases decreased by approximately two percent from 3% to 1% around the world. We are very grateful for healthcare professionals and first responders around the world that are caring for the critically ill. The recovery percentage for closed cases has increased by approximately seventeen percent (from 79% to 96%) around the world, as shown in the data above.

Our Risk Management Team calculates the coronavirus data to monitor the crisis but more importantly, this gives our Team the ability to recognize the true scope and significance of this global pandemic. We are not just looking at numbers, this data and information represents People. It is difficult for our Team to review and include this statistical information. The lives of those we love, that have been lost, cannot be replaced. As we focus on recovery around the world, we also hope to show our respect for the lives of those individuals that have been lost due to this virus and other reasons around the world. 
 
We take a moment to include a prayer:

Lord Jesus, look kindly on our work and the work of our friends today. Help us in our difficulties and decisions. May this candle be a light for you to enlighten us. May it be a fire for you to burn out of us all pride, selfishness and impurity. May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into our hearts; warmth towards family, neighbors and all whom we may meet. Amen.

We do not typically post prayers on our website. Many people ~ 977,155 deaths as of Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020 ~ may have passed suddenly with perhaps no one by their side. We are praying for those people today. We hope no person shall be lost without our thoughts and prayers.

Many, ourselves included, have a difficult time with understanding complicated and/or detailed pandemic information that is provided to us by scientific professionals and institutional leadership, working in public and private sectors, across the globe. We can only ask for guidance. 

COVID-19 is affecting 213 countries and territories around the world and 2 international conveyances. Based on research, new cases have increased around the world within the past 27 weeks. However, please note that the recovery percentage improved by seventeen percent over the past 27 week period. Most will discount our risk analysis and research to say that there is much more that needs to be part of the process and mathematical calculation. While we understand the need for advanced scientific analysis, we also have the ability to learn from basic math. Reviewing the data on a linear versus logarithmic scale will also make a difference in how the results are interpreted.

Our only intention on this website is to promote safety and kindness. Keeping our chin up and our hands clean. We respect the state and local restrictions that have been put in place on a temporary basis to slow the spread of a highly contagious virus that has subsequently created a public health crisis. Our organization is providing guest services for essential employees and families during COVID-19. We have implemented the operational changes required to maintain guest safety and public health standards going forward.

We pray that the planet’s resources will not be wasted, but shared in a just and respectful manner.
 
We recognize that the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we travel and go about our daily activities. We are diligently following the practices and guidelines set forth by the CDC on hygiene and cleaning. We do not live in fear of COVID-19 because we understand how the disease is spread and we are prepared for the response. 

With the goal of easing your travel planning, we have adjusted our policies to provide additional flexibility.

Orders from Pennsylvania & Delaware Department of Health Organizations have been implemented.
 
The following information was provided by professionals and may be difficult to interpret, however it is critical to read and understand:
  • Presymptomatic transmission of SARS-CoV-2 increases the challenges of COVID-19 containment measures, which are predicated on early detection and isolation of symptomatic persons.

  • The magnitude of this impact is dependent upon the extent and duration of transmissibility while a person is presymptomatic, which, to date, have not been clearly established.
Summary - it is possible for someone to have COVID-19 and spread it to others, even if they have no symptoms.
 
We continue to monitor this extremely difficult situation and are here to assist our guests as needed.

Emergency preparedness can be viewed as the ultimate customer service amenity that we can give our guests. The most important responsibility in the event of any emergency is to stay calm. We advise everyone to check travel restrictions - state, local, and territorial governments may have travel restrictions in place, including testing requirements, stay-at-home orders, and quarantine requirements upon arrival. We ask guests and associates to follow state, local, and territorial travel restrictions. If traveling internationally or across international borders, please check with the specific country’s Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health or the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travelers, such as mandatory testing or quarantine. As of August 6th, The State Department lifted the Global Level 4 Health Advisory that was in place since March 19th, 2020. This effort provides specific recommendations for international travel. Local policies at any destination may require travelers to be tested for COVID-19 before being permitted entry into the country. If a traveler tests positive on arrival, they may be required to isolate for a period of time. Please note, international travelers may be prevented from returning to the United States, as scheduled.
 
Please visit the CDC website for more information about COVID19

Daily Operations Report Objectives: Our operations team is required to write an operations report. Our operations report is concise and well-organized. There are specific points that are highlighted throughout our reporting in order for the information to be complete and accurate. In order to make sure our operations report is in the correct format and context, specific steps have been taken to compile the data and write the report.

Back to Basics
The following basic questions are addressed in our operations reporting in order for the operational information we collect on a daily basis to be complete.

We address the following:

  • Identify daily operations and report any facility issues
  • Explain why each issue is important and assign a priority
  • Identify a way to solve the problem, with or without help
  • Focus on what we are currently doing as an organization as well as what we are doing to solve any issues that may have been identified
  • Provide an update on metrics as well as solutions for issues that may have been identified
  • Show how we provide a safe environment for everyone by having measurable metrics that demonstrate our ability to maintain guest safety.

Outline
Our outline identifies the basic points mentioned above and clearly describes these key points. Our operations reporting defines the key points and their reasoning to guests and associates. Regardless of whether or not someone is extremely familiar with the information in the report or if it is new to the individual, we believe that every report must be able to speak to everyone.

Operations
Please note that our Operations Report speaks to a wide global audience as we host guests and associates from all over the world. Our operational reporting shall always be specific enough for all guests and associates to understand what our organization is about and what our interest is in our community. We aim to serve local, regional and international guests as well as our associates. It is important that our Operations Plan makes sense to an associate in training as well as a seasoned operations manager and most importantly, the general public. If any of these individuals were to read our Operations Report, each individual would be able to understand what our publication is about. We must be able to put ourselves in the shoes of every guest and associate in order to determine if our emergency operations planning will work.

COVID-19 Summary
Coronavirus updates are an important part of the operations report until further notice. It shall continue to be limited in length. It is important that this public health update conveys the current global health crisis, its importance, as well as a brief description of how the health crisis can be mitigated or resolved. We are dedicated to our contribution to solving problems and we continue to improve our efforts to make a contribution. Technical language has been limited in the summary and only used if it is relevant to the operational reporting, otherwise we write in plain clear English. Our operations report may be transmitted to third parties with no additional supporting material, it is important to us that all reporting clearly conveys the context of the operation.

Illustrations
We believe that using pictures and illustrations in our operations report can help draw attention to the story we are telling. We create, capture and provide these graphics and pictures sometimes with the use of the Internet. Each illustration includes a title and information about what we are trying to convey by using the illustration. We always must give proper credit to where the illustration comes from if we did not create on our own or purchase with the right to redistribute. Corporate copyright information must be included with all photos, tables and graphs.

*Important COVID-19: A message to our guests*

Conservation and preservation of material culture.

In the beginning I was a collector of stamps.

My grandfather gave me an antique watch and our family entrusted me with a treasure trove of objects. Part of a family of collectors, I live in a home filled with art and antiques inherited from family. Understandably there are some incredible antiques in a family from the Philadelphia region for over 300 years. Once you enter the Art Gallery, it is obvious that we love to collect beautiful objects for display in our curated exhibits.

Everyone in our family has a true appreciation for family heirlooms and our focus is on preservation and provenance.

I was the only son to get the collecting bug, and like most collectors, I started out early. Trunks, suitcases, and boxes sealed for generations, filled with objects that had belonged to our ancestors. Rooting around and unearthing precious items under the house one day, I decided I wanted to be involved with the conservation of historical objects in one way or another. I decided to study material culture and after many hours of study...I still have much to learn. I received my certification as a valuation professional and today remain focused on conservation. I find many homes like our own, with art or objects passed down for many generations.

The Art Gallery has been transformed into a Boutique Hotel with six guest rooms and breakfast served daily.

Guests have an opportunity to experience essential luxury in a historic Philadelphia home and neighborhood.

 

Etsy is our online Boutique

Bread n Butter Antiques - Fine Gifts and Interiors

Etsy is a pleasure to work with and it is amazing to see such beautiful items all in one place. There are many talented artists that it is easy to consider this venture more artistic than entrepreneurial.

I am a collector of material culture with a passion for provenance and photography. The Art Gallery is an alternative space to showcase art and objects. We invite artists to display their artwork along with the art and objects in the collection. The Art Gallery emerges from the perfect historical home to showcase our entire collection. Historically inspired interior design with a modern twist of essential luxury.

The BnB Antiques and Art Gallery is open daily and operates as a full-service Boutique hotel as well as hosting private events, corporate office functions and gallery tours in historical Philadelphia.

Adapting to the future of travel - Travel is a resilient industry, the recovery will take time, but we’re already noticing some signs of improvement. But it’s important to keep in mind that people may not travel the same way they did before COVID-19. Here are some of the latest trends on Airbnb:
  • Guests book stays closer to home. Since the pandemic began, the percentage of people booking nearby stays has more than doubled from 13% to 30%.
  • Travelers will want more affordable options. The global economy is struggling, and many people are now out of work, so it’s no wonder our lowest-cost stays—those under $50 USD/night (per person) are growing quickly.
  • There will be a desire for private spaces. The majority of past and prospective guests have told us they’d feel more comfortable staying with their families in a space listed on Airbnb than at a hotel.
  • Cleanliness will be more important than ever. The good news is that Airbnb hosts already have a strong track record here—in 94% of reviews, guests have given spaces 4 or 5 stars for cleanliness. With our new enhanced cleaning protocol, guests will be in an even better position to protect themselves.
  • Guests will book more trips at the last minute. The percentage of last-minute bookings has doubled since the emergence of COVID-19.

There is nothing better than

the satisfaction of a job well done

in the hospitality and service industry

 Recent Reviews - courtesy of Airbnb 

The truth about the hospitality industry is simple; it is all done with ebb and flow. We take notice of the little details before and after each guest check-in. This makes the difference between delighted smiles of satisfaction instead of frustration when guests leave. We take our time and make an extraordinary effort towards making each guest feel welcome and  appreciated

Our team of professionals begin each day with attention to detail, an exceptionally clean room of course, as well as a personal touch that tells our guests that we know them, we have anticipated their needs, and we want everyone to have an exceptional visit.

The number of visitors to the facility, including exterior buildings or office space, will be limited to only those necessary for registered guests or associates performing work.

 All individuals, visitors, guests or associates will be screened in advance of entering the facility. If a visitor, guest or associate answers “yes” to any of the following questions, he/she may not be permitted to access the facility:

  •  Have you been confirmed positive for COVID-19?
  •  Are you currently experiencing, or recently experienced, any acute respiratory illness symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath?
  •  Have you been in close contact with any persons who have been confirmed positive for COVID-19?
  •  Have you been in close contact with any persons who have traveled and are also exhibiting acute respiratory illness symptoms?

Site deliveries will be permitted but should be properly coordinated in line with minimal contact and cleaning protocols. Delivery personnel should remain in their vehicles if at all possible.
