US Travel Assn and American Hotel and Lodging Assn Released Protocols

To be encouraged once travel is allowed again.

They are:
Increased cleaning and hand washing.
Installation of physical barriers.
Use of masks (all major US airlines now require them for employees and for passengers, and crew while flying), gloves and social distancing.

The hotel trade group’s protocols call on housekeepers to stay out of a guest’s room until the guest checks out.
Requires that guests around the hotel grounds keep six feet apart.
The more the better, with studies showing that the spray from a cough can travel up to 12 feet.
If a guest tests positive for COVID-19, that their room is not returned to service until an enhanced cleaning and disinfection is done using EPA approve products within CDC guidelines.

Choice Hotels have a new cleaning protocol that includes using hospital-grade disinfectant in high use areas.

Hilton Corp. has a new standard called CleanStay in partnership with the makers of Lysol.

My opinion: wear a mask when around anyone.
You don’t need to wear it while alone by yourself.
Breathing and coughing from one person to another spreads it.

Wash your hands all the time! Because touching your eyes, nose or mouth will give it to you.

Clean all surfaces that are touched, breathed or coughed on.

For surfaces that can’t handle liquid, UV-C lights are an excellent option.

I’ve used one for many years since the norovirus outbreak in 2013.
They work!

Keep up the good work, and soon there will be accurate antibody testing, quarantining, contact tracing, medications and a vaccine.
