Marin Recovers Reopening Guidelines

  • Hotels, Lodging– Best Practices

    • Redesign office spaces, cubicles, lobbies, front desk check-in areas, business centers, concierge service areas, and other spaces to ensure workspaces and guest accommodations allow for at least six feet distance.

    • Guests and visitors should be screened upon arrival and asked to use hand sanitizer and to wear a face covering. Face coverings shall be provided to guests who arrive without them. Include in policies and procedures the right to cancel reservations for parties with symptomatic visitors.

    • Lodging operators should allow housekeepers extra time to clean rooms to account for required precautions and to allow them to conduct more thorough cleaning and disinfection of rooms between guests.

    • If possible, avoid early arrivals or late departures to minimize the possibility of disrupting the enhanced cleaning process between guest stays.

    • Housekeepers and others who must enter guest rooms should be provided with and required to wear face coverings. Housekeeping must only service rooms when guests are not present. Housekeepers should be instructed to minimize contact with guests’ personal belongings when cleaning. Housekeepers should be instructed to have ventilation systems operating and/or open windows whenever possible to increase air circulation.

    • To reduce the risk of asthma-related to disinfecting, Lodging operators should aim to select disinfectant products on the N list with asthma-safer ingredients (hydrogen peroxide, citric acid, or lactic acid). Avoid products that mix these ingredients with peroxyacetic acid, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), or quaternary ammonium compounds, which can cause asthma. Follow the asthma-safer cleaning methods recommended by the California Department of Public Health.

    • Vacuum cleaners must be equipped with HEPA filters. Avoid sweeping floors with a broom; if possible, use a vacuum cleaner instead.

    • Kitchen items, including pots, pans, and utensils, must be cleaned between each guest stay. All dishes must be washed, including the ones in the cabinet and others that may have been left in different rooms. Provide adequate dish soap and new, unused sponges for each guest upon arrival. Consider replacing utensils with a one-time use of dinnerware, if feasible.

    • Properly clean all appliances and kitchen areas, including refrigerator shelving, the oven stovetop, coffee-makers, toasters, pantry shelves, and other areas.

    • Dirty linens should be removed and transported from guest rooms in single-use, sealed bags. Removal and cleaning of all towels and linens at the conclusion of each guest's stay should include all items, regardless of whether they appear to have been used or not. These items should be bagged in the guest room to eliminate excess contact while being transported. All bed linen and laundry should be washed at a high temperature and cleaned in accordance with CDC guidelines.

    • Avoid sharing tools or work supplies. Any shared tools and equipment should be cleaned and disinfected before, during, and after each shift or anytime the equipment is transferred to a new employee. This includes phones, radios, computers and other communication devices, payment terminals, kitchen implements, engineering tools, safety buttons, folios, housekeeping carts and cleaning equipment, keys, time clocks, and all other direct contact items.

    • Discontinue the use of shared food and beverage equipment in office pantries (including shared coffee brewers). Close manually operated ice machines or use hands-free machines.

    • All reusable collateral, such as magazines, menus, local attraction details, coupons, etc., should be removed from guest rooms. Critical information should be provided as single-use collateral and/or electronically posted.

    • Considerations specific to hotel operations:

    • Guests should enter through doors that are either propped open, if possible, and in adherence to security protocols, or are automated or manually operated by Personnel who are frequently handwashing and/or using proper hand sanitizer.

    • Implement peak period queueing procedures, including a lobby greeter and having guests queue outside to maintain at least six feet of physical distance between persons.

    • Personnel should not open the doors of cars or taxis.

    • Guest room service, laundry, and dry-cleaning services, and amenity deliveries should be made available using contactless pick-up and delivery protocols wherever possible.
