Covid-19: With the imminent re-opening of the hospitality industry in Europe and beyond, there is an excitement of opportunity to serve customers and provide superb holiday experiences again.
Key Areas of Consideration
Families will want to know that there is a robust needs-based testing schedule and policy in place to ensure that:
- those who have antibodies are able to optimise their play experience
- those who have COVID-19 or develop symptoms are isolated and aren’t able to infect others
- those who don’t have it are protected effectively from any risk.
Implementation of an effective track and trace strategy to reduce or remove risk of an outbreak in a hotel or resort by quickly identifying and contacting those who have symptoms or have recently been in contact with anyone who has tested positive.
Parents will want to understand and be reassured of how your resort will implement and manage social distancing measures both throughout the resort and in particular in family and childrens activity areas. Activities for kids must be well planned and managed according to physcial distancing guidelines, with minimal compromise on fun, learning and non-physical social interaction.
PPE and uniform policies will provide further peace of mind and reassurance that virus transmission is prevented as far as is possible, including through use of PPE where appropriate, and policy on uniform design, washing and usage.
Worldwide Kids has been working hard to create solutions and guidance for a new way of delivering the very best-in-class hospitality service with these considerations in mind.
