Cleanliness Policies FAQ
Have you changed work protocols or processes to safeguard associates from COVID-19?
We are committed to monitoring the latest guidance from the CDC and WHO and are updating their protocols, and developing appropriate guidelines for hotels which include everything from training on safety, sanitation and social distancing protocols to providing appropriate personal protective equipment and access to hand sanitizers while on property. In the spaces where associates work “behind the scenes,” we are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like associate entrances, locker rooms, laundry rooms and staff offices.
What cleaning practices is your hotel following today?
Bonaventure Resort & Spa has long had a reputation for high standards of hotel cleanliness with well-established cleaning processes and training in place. On a regular basis, our hotel is working to adopt the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning. Our hotels’ health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from handwashing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest room and common area cleaning procedures.
Are products used to sanitize common areas and guestrooms non-toxic and safe - particularly for people with allergies?
The Hotel uses EPA- or local authority approved cleaning products that are safe for associates and guests. If you have a specific allergen or safety question about the products used by our hotel, we encourage you to reach out to the hotel directly.
What hygiene and safety items are being used and made available to all guests?
The CDC and WHO warn about direct, person-to-person contact as the primary way COVID-19 is spread. To help alleviate the risk of transmission this way, we will be using signage in our lobby to remind guests to maintain social distancing protocols and removing or re-arranging furniture to allow more space for distancing. Bonaventure Resort & Spa has also added partitions at front desks to provide an extra level of precaution for our guests and associates and is working with supply chain partners to make masks and gloves available to associates for daily use. The company is installing more hand sanitizing stations in high-traffic areas, including the entrances to the hotel, near the front desk, elevator banks, fitness center, and meeting Spaces.
What will happen when a guest checks in and must stand in line?
We are implementing social distancing guidelines which meet or exceed local guidance, including signage, physical partitions at the front desk and floor markers to help guests maintain appropriate social distancing. Guests are also encouraged to use our check-out system available via your guest room television.
Are there limits on how many people can congregate in lobbies or other public areas?
Our hotel is monitoring and adhering to guidance from our local authorities. Measures the resort is taking currently include helping guests’ distance from each other in our lobbies/public spaces through increased social distancing signage, and removing excess furniture/seating to create more space.
What enhancements are being made to cleaning practices in your guest rooms?
The resort is continuing to use cleaning and disinfecting protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items.
