Pinehurst Promise

Pinehurst is dedicated to providing our guests a safe and enjoyable stay and we continue to diligently follow all of the guidelines put forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and the state of North Carolina.

Fully vaccinated persons are not required to wear masks or social distance indoors or outdoors in gatherings large or small. Additionally, all capacity restrictions and social distancing requirements have been lifted for restaurants, bars, and meeting spaces in hotels. 

Per CDC guidance, in general, people are considered fully vaccinated:  

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

Per CDC guidance, we strongly recommend that individuals who choose not to vaccinate should continue to wear masks and practice safe physical distancing while indoors and utilizing shuttles and trolleys.

Some modifications to our operational practices, protocols and recommendations are still in place around the Resort. Click the links below to view more. We hope you enjoy your stay at Pinehurst.
