What Precautions Are Hotels Taking as They Reopen?, Brighton, New York

As businesses across the nation start the process of reopening, they are making changes to their practices and operations to ensure the safety of all guests and workers. If you plan to travel, your hotel will likely be taking extra sanitation and social distancing precautions. Here are a few steps many hotels are taking to keep patrons safe.

3 Ways Hotels Are Preparing to Reopen

1. Sanitation

Hotel staff will be working hard to keep the facilities clean. Many are using hospital-grade, EPA-approved cleaning agents and virus-eliminating UV technologies to sanitize the premises before the doors open to the public. Frequently used touch points such as door handles, public area furniture, and elevator surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day. Guests and staff members will have access to touchless hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the building.

As a rule, many locations are keeping guest rooms unoccupied for 48 hours between each guest to allow for cleaning with both hospital-grade and activated oxygen sanitizing agents.

2. Screening

Screening is important to travelensure the virus does not enter the building. Before opening, hotels are holding training sessions on social distancing and health and safety courses for every staff member.

Hotels will scan the temperature of each guest and team member before they walk through the front doors. You will likely be required to wear a mask. Some hotels are offering wellness kits as you arrive, and your luggage and travel gear will be sanitized with UV technology.

3. Distancing

To adhere to social distancing guidelines, hotels are offering contactless guest services. Check-in and check-out, service requests, concierge support, and room service can all be enjoyed with appropriate distancing. Social distancing rules should be posted clearly and conveniently throughout the facilities.

In dining areas, seating will be rearranged to accommodate 6 feet of space between each group. All servers will keep a proper distance from guests and wear masks and gloves at all times. The kitchen staff will employ robust sanitation processes. With these safety precautions, you can rest assured that your stay will be safe and enjoyable.
