The American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) has launched a new ‘Stay Safe’ initiative, designed to ensure health and safety measures are adhered to as hotels reopen around the country after the coronavirus pandemic.
The protocols will ensure the utmost safety for employees and guests, said the association.
The AHLA created an advisory board of industry experts. Advised by public health experts, the board curated the most up-to-date advice on keeping the coronavirus at bay.
The body said that even before the outbreak of COVID-19, the hospitality industry is one that has always adhered to the strictest of health and safety measures. Amid the pandemic this has only increased.
Chip Rogers, AHLA CEO and president, said: “Safe Stay was developed specifically to ensure enhanced safety for hotels guests and employees.
“While hotels have always employed demanding cleaning standards, this new initiative will ensure greater transparency and confidence throughout the entire hotel experience.
“The industry’s enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols will continue to evolve to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19.”
