    "My job as Head Housekeeper at Golden Bear Cottages in Big Bear Lake included making sure our cabins are absolutely as clean as possible for our guests. To accomplish this my bosses introduced me to the ultraviolet light inspection system from Rest Assured Corp. Constant use of this system checks to make sure the housekeepers clean deeper than the normal surface cleaning you find in most hotels. It allows the staff to detect any residue or fluids left by the previous guest or our housekeeper. They then make sure any problem is corrected before guests check into your cozy Golden Bear Cottages accommodations. To our knowledge, Golden Bear Cottages resort is the only hotel, resort lodging or cabin property in Big Bear Lake to take the time to use this revolutionary Rest Assured Light Inspection System... and I should know, because over the past 20 years I have been a Housekeeping Supervisor at 3 other top Big Bear hotels. Please feel free to ask about the exclusive use of the Rest Assured Light Inspection System when you stay with us at Golden Bear Cottages resort. The best family cabins, and best lodge for families Big Bear.

    Sincerely, Nora Valenzuela -Head Housekeeper

    OCTOBER 23, 2020 -- Big Bear Lake remains one of the safest places in California and continues to encourage 
    all of our businesses, guests and residents to use common sense and exercise physical distancing (maintain 6 feet 
    of separation), wear face coverings and engage in proper personal hygiene when appropriate.

    News from July 14, 2020 - Two hair stylists in Springfield, Mo., broke the cardinal rule of infection control: Despite having respiratory symptoms, one went to work and saw clients for eight days, when she learned she had tested positive for Covid-19. Her colleague also developed symptoms, three days after her co-worker, and also kept working until she tested positive, two days after the first stylist. Together, they saw 139 clients, with appointments for hair cuts, shaves, and perms lasting 15 to 45 minutes.

    Yet when the local health department identified and contacted the 139 clients, asking them to self-quarantine for 14 days and checking in daily about whether they had developed Covid-19 symptoms, not a single one (of the 104 who agreed to be interviewed) did. Of the 67 who consented to a swab test, every one tested negative. There was one other notable fact about the case: Both stylists and every client had worn a face covering.

    This case, described on Tuesday in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, adds to the near-universal scientific consensus that, more than any of single action short of everyone entering solitary confinement, face coverings can prevent the transmission of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.
