Here are the safety practices we are implementing in our properties to keep you safe during COVID-19:
Social Distancing We are facilitating social distancing by decreasing the capacity on our shuttle buses, excursions, and indoor venues.
Masks To help protect others from infection, employees wear face coverings. Guests are encouraged to wear face coverings whenever social distancing is impossible, when interacting with guests from another party, and when gathering in common and indoor areas.
Contactless Check-in We’ve eliminated the need for in-person check-in. By checking-in online beforehand, you can skip the front desk and go directly to your room upon arrival.
Sanitation In addition to increased cleaning frequency in all areas, we have enhanced our sanitation protocols with spraying machines. The ozone machine evenly disperses potential disinfection-grade cleaning agents, on even hard-to-reach places; ensuring that heavily trafficked areas, receive deep-cleaning frequently before the guest arrival. Followed by a tag on the room’s doorknob assuring that is disinfected and ready for use.
Daily Screenings and Testing All employees are required to participate in daily temperature checks and symptom surveys to help quickly identify those who may be infected. We ask that if an employee shows any cold or flu symptoms to let us know and not report to work until cleared by a physician. All employees returning to work are routinely tested for COVID-19.
Hand Hygiene Good hand hygiene is critical in reducing the spread of disease. We have increased the number of hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the property and added hand-washing stations in critical areas. Hand-hygiene signage is placed in strategic areas for reinforcement and reminders.
Food Service We have a strict structured food preparation service, but also guests have the option of taking care of their own. We have implemented safe measures as the use of gloves, face masks, hand sanitizers, and careful handle of meal preparation.
