COVID, Flu & Cold Safety Tips for Hotels

Sanitizing a bedside table in a hotel - COVID flu and cold safety tips for hotels

It’s the time of year where the cold, flu and COVID are spreading like wildfire. Protect your staff and customers by following CDC guidelines as well as preventing the spread of viruses by taking the proper precautions. Learn how you can keep everyone staying at your hotel safe below.

Gear Up

Aside from masks, you’ll want to offer hand sanitizers in each room as well as in the lobby for guests to use. You might also want to consider disposable shampoo bottles and coffee cups for the morning. Here are a few of the protective supplies your guests may need:

  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Pre-packaged toiletries
  • Sanitizer spray
  • Air purifiers

Consider Contact Points

Viruses spread mainly through contact. This means you have a higher risk of getting sick when checking in, checking out and when maids come to clean the room. To avoid these high contact situations, consider contactless check out options as well as a keycard drop off station where the cards can be collected and sanitized at a later time.

Make Some Changes

While you’ll need to stock up on sanitizing and disinfecting supplies, it’s also important to enforce some new rules that will keep guests from getting sick or spreading illness. Here are a few changes you might want to make going into the cold and flu season:

  • Equip each room with an air purifier to keep clean air circulating. 
  • Only offer housekeeping services for extended stays.
  • Limit the breakfast bar to individually wrapped foods such as cereal bags or oatmeal cups.
  • Sanitize the door knobs, light switches and other high contact points in a room after guests check out.

Whether you need new janitorial supplies to avoid the spread of COVID or you want to know how to market your business, we can help.
