For its operations at the park, Delaware North has implemented a comprehensive program in response to COVID-19. The Rest Assured™ Commitment to Care program features new health and safety standards aimed at helping keep guests and employees safe. Delaware North has re-engineered operating procedures to minimize contact risk and bolster hygiene protocols to meet or exceed best-practice guidelines of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Rest Assured™ program at Niagara Falls State Park includes:

  • Upholding current social distancing guidelines as directed by local and state health officials and in compliance with the CDC.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols for all high-touch surfaces in common areas.
  • Most points of sale accept touchless mobile wallet payment options such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations.
  • Plexiglass dividers at points of sale.
  • Rest Assured signage, including for social distancing.

In addition, our employees:

  • Take a health check when they report to work.
  • Sanitize their hands when they report to work and are required to wash and sanitize their hands frequently throughout the shift.
  • Undergo a comprehensive Rest Assured Training Program.
  • Wear face coverings while they are on duty.
