Mariner Village has 32 units vs Seaside at 320 so it is easier to manage contact. The rules at MV:
One person per group in the check in office, but no reservation required. They had plastic partitions up to separate the 2 check in lines. They are limiting it to 3 people in the office at one time but that wasn't an issue while I was there. They are only at 50% capacity right now and hope to be at 100% in July, but will have to see how things go. One worker was kept busy talking to people on the phone who wanted to know if their reservation would be good etc.
Pool access by reservation for 1.5 hours each time slot. No limitation on number of reservations, but I expect that depends on the demand; there wasn't much with it only being used a couple of times each day. One family group at a time. The pool isn't big enough for more than that. Hot tubs closed. Pool towels in the pool area.
BBQ also on a reservation system with one family group per grill area (the new one by the office and the one by the pool). They will also bring a George Forman electric grill to use on your balcony. I didn't see anybody using the grills.
Check out by text or phone call. They ask you to start the dishwasher and take out the garbage which they have always done. However, it now has the added incentive of helping to keep the cleaning crew safer.
All workers were wearing masks at all times.
