Add the restaurant and dining establishments at Boston Mills Brandywine to the ever-growing list of Northeast Ohio businesses asking for proof of vaccination before entry. 

The ski resort announced on its website that vaccinations would be required for guests aged 12 and older for the indoor and on-mountain quick-service restaurants, including guests enrolled in the ski school programs. 

Boston Mills Brandywine says on its website that the vaccine requirement is "consistent with many other large-scale indoor activities and venues" and that inside of the restaurants is currently the only location on the property that will require proof of vaccination.

"We are fortunate that the core of the ski and ride experience takes place outdoors in vast mountain settings. However, as we welcome guests from around the world to the indoor experience at our resorts, we feel it’s important to do our part to combat the spread of COVID-19. This season, our COVID-19 safety protocols are focused on indoor spaces," the resort says on its website.

Additionally, the website says that the resort will return to normal capacity for mountain access lifts, as opposed to 2020's booking schedule. 

Boston Mills Brandywine will also require employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, "for their safety and protection as well as the safety and
protection of our guests and communities, and in compliance with the recent rules announced under the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration."
