To aid in that effort, as of 12pm Tuesday, December 22, Nemacolin has paused business until an anticipated re-opening on January 4th, 2021. This unprecedented move signifies Hardy Knox's commitment to health and safety for all.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has implored Pennsylvanians to stand united and adhere to existing mitigation orders and stricter efforts. Nemacolin is proud to take this step as part of an enhanced mitigation effort. All associates will receive full pay over the closure and guests will be accommodated for future stays.
"At the end of the day, our associates, guests and the community are truly the most important," said Nemacolin owner Maggie Hardy Knox. "We certainly all enjoy celebrating during the holiday season but this year, we encourage everyone to celebrate safely at home. I hope that more businesses strongly consider putting PA on Pause and implementing enhanced efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID. I couldn't imagine an associate at Nemacolin inadvertently exposing a family member to COVID during the holiday season."
The following charities received monetary support from Nemacolin this Holiday season:
- Project Bundle Up
- Wharton Township – $500,000 funds for new pump truck and EMS for operations
- Crime Victims' Center of Fayette County
- Fred Rogers Center
