Local hotels, like so many businesses in communities throughout the nation, have been hard hit by the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The American Hotel Lodging Association recently published guidelines for hotel employees to follow during this time as part of the ever important effort to keep guests and employees safe.

Hotels have always met rigorous standards for cleaning and safety and these enhanced guidelines are rooted in recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Safe Stay initiative brings a new level of focus and transparency to an industry already built on cleanliness, featuring endorsements by hospitality leaders in all 50 states and Canada and a companion training course.

  

AHLA also recently sent letters to mayors, governors, and the White House commending and encouraging the practice and standardizing of consistent use of face coverings in all indoor public spaces.
