COVID-19 Update

Jackson Hole Hideout Tree

Jackson Hole Hideout Friends & Guests

Well, our Summer 2020 season has ended and we wish to thank all of our guests – new and returning, for helping us keep the focus on guest safety and wellness.

State of Wyoming and Teton County orders that address mobility, activities and gatherings are still in place, as is the County’s order requiring that adults wear face coverings when entering or inside a retail or commercial business. You can visit for comprehensive information about our community’s response to the novel coronavirus.

We still believe that it is not a return to normal or even an approach to the new normal, because we really don’t know what that is. Rather, it is embarking on a stabilization phase here in Teton County, per guidance established by the County’s Public Health Department.  The Road to Recovery framework – with general public, general employer, sector-specific, and high-risk individual guidance – will be leveraged by all to ensure the health and safety of the community and its visitors.

So, as you decide to move ahead with your booking, please keep in mind that a visit to Jackson Hole during Summer 2021 may be different from what you’ve envisioned or imagined up until this point in time.  It’s important for you to consider what you want to do here and how you’ll be able to do it with continued social distancing guidelines.

To keep up to date with the National Parks, please visit the official sites for Yellowstone and Grand Teton. For more up to date information on local businesses, please visit the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce.

At the Hideout, we have made appropriate adjustments to the way we manage breakfast, our beverage and snack bar, our housekeeping services, and access to our laundry room. We have done that to further adhere to the most current guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the following:  U.S. Food & Drug Association, U.S. Travel Association, American Hotel & Lodging Association, National Restaurant Association, Association for Linen Management, Wyoming Restaurant & Lodging Association and Teton County.

  • Specifically, we have placed hand sanitizer stations just inside the front door, in the great room and in the kitchen and dining area. There is more frequent cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of high traffic areas and high touch surfaces, using recommended cleaners.
  • Housekeeping staff is using appropriate personal protective equipment. Daily housekeeping service – for the same guests in the same room – may not be available.
  • Your fresh, hot, and hearty breakfast, along with snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, is being provided take-out style and can be enjoyed in the dining room, the great room, your guest room or other common areas where social distancing is possible.
  • And, the laundry room is now be off-limits.
  • The Hideout also reserves the right to cancel any reservation as a result of COVID-19.  In the event of such cancellation, the Hideout will immediately inform impacted guests and will refund any deposit or advance payment made by impacted guests for any nights cancelled.  We will also assist you if we can in securing accommodations at another local lodging establishment.


These are just some of the highlights, and they may change over time.  We THANK YOU for your continued support and look forward to your future visit.  Be well and stay healthy!!!

The CDC also offers the following general considerations to protect yourself and others if / when you travel

  • Don’t travel if you are sick or plan to travel with someone who is sick
  • Pack a sufficient amount of alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) and keep it in a place that is readily available
  • Bring an EPA-registered disinfectant and/or other personal cleaning supplies, if possible
  • 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; 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; keep 6 feet of physical distance from others
  • Wear a cloth face-covering in public
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Pick up food at drive-thrus, at curbside, or at stores; do not dine in restaurants if that is prohibited by State or local guidance
