Guidance, Procedures, and Best Practices for Re-opening Lodging Facilities

As states begin to allow hotels, bed and breakfasts, AirBNBs and other accommodation establishments to reopen, we know that your top priority is maintaining the health and safety of your customers and staff. 

No property should be worried about a lack of available protective equipment.  That’s where we come in.

We provide delivery within a week and free shipping to all U.S. locations, and are ready to provide a steady supply of all the personal protective equipment (PPE) recommended by health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local health departments:

  • Respirators and disposable face masks
  • Touch-free thermometers
  • Hand sanitizers
  • Hand wipes
  • Medical gloves
  • Protective eyewear
  • Protective wear, like gowns
  • Additional PPE essentials and cloth masks

We have worked with the FDA to ensure that all our products have the necessary requisite certifications.  In addition, our KN95 industrial-grade respirators are manufactured to EEA standards.  Providing disposable, one-use masks for your staff and clients is one of the best ways to keep everyone safe. Disposable masks cut transmission rates by as much as 99% and ensure that employees start everyday with sterile PPE. 

While best practices might evolve as cities and states move through different phases of reopening, there will consistently be a strong focus on the use of PPE and social distancing.  We know that COVID-19 is transmitted either through direct contact with an infected individual, or through indirect contact by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.  The use of PPE and social distancing makes it possible to mitigate both types of transmission.

According to guidance shared by the WHO, prevention measures for all lodging facilities should include:

  • Regular and thorough hand hygiene
  • Social distancing
  • Avoiding touching the eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Good respiratory hygiene (sneezing into the bend of your elbow or into a tissue)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Providing essential PPE for cleaning staff: includes facial protection, gloves, and gowns
  • Keeping necessary equipment at the reception desk: includes germicidal disinfectant/wipes for surface cleaning, tissues, and face masks

Other suggested best practices include requiring that staff wear face masks - or that establishments install protective shields between areas of guest-staff interaction (such as the front desk, concierge, and valet stands) - and implementing temperature checks when staff arrive for the day. 

These basic protective measures will help keep everyone in your establishment safe, and they are why we have transitioned our global manufacturing relationships to provide PPE.  We’ve been in business for nearly 30 years in Los Angeles and have an extensive network of factories now focused on providing protective equipment.  We want to help get all lodging facilities set up with the right products for the continued safety of all customers and staff.  Contact us today and let us know how we can help keep our communities safe and protected.
