As we’re moving along through the current health situation, our urge to wind down and relax is stronger than ever. With all the pressure and stress coming from the different aspects of our lives, especially now; a well-deserved getaway is definitely at the order of the day. But, as we are all on a serious COVID alert with the risk of contracting it increasing significantly when going out, we cannot help but wonder how safe it will really be to go on a vacation.
News has been circulating that famous resorts are establishing resort bubbles as an additional precautionary measure to ensure their visitors and guests will enjoy their stay without the worry of being exposed to any health risks. Let’s find how safe they really are.
Resort bubbles have placed additional safety protocols to ensure health for their guests. Some of them are the following:
- Because it is notable that contracting the virus is mainly due to physical transmission, touching surfaces that were previously contaminated by an infected person is one way to contract the virus. In order to minimize this risk, resort bubbles have started to scale down physical touching of amenities within the resort, like doorknobs, for example. To prevent physical contact, guests are provided keyless entry mechanisms so that they can access their reserved rooms and open and close the doors with the use of wireless or keyless mechanisms such as RFID and QR code access.
- The cleaning procedure has also been upgraded. Aside from the usual cleaning protocols, these resorts have put in additional frequency on cleaning and extra disinfecting procedures within their premises. Especially to those high touch areas within the resort. The extra attention to cleaning combined with regular disinfecting procedures will give visitors peace of mind so that they can enjoy the amenities and their well-deserved break without worry.
- Another extra precaution is restricted movements. All personnel, including visitors, will be allowed limited movement in going in and out of the resort during their stay. This is to ensure unwanted transmission is minimized and contact tracing procedures will be more accurate and efficient.
While these additional protocols are an added effort for these resort bubbles, it is a simple gesture from them to provide a better service and safer environment for clients and visitors.
