Travel Information: COVID-19 Update

We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and the local health departments. The wellbeing of our guests and associates is of paramount importance.

Gallows Point Cleanliness Commitment: Health and Hygiene

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Given the effects of COVID-19, we have taken additional measures, developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities (including the WHO and CDC), to ensure Gallows Point guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay. These procedures build upon Gallows Point Resort’s already high standard of housekeeping and hygiene, where high-quality cleaning products and upgraded protocols are currently in use. The new procedures include:

  • Enhanced Team Member safety and well-being with personal protective equipment and enhanced training and protocols
  • Hand Hygiene: Proper and frequent hand washing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. In our daily meetings, our teams are reminded that cleanliness starts with this simple act. It’s important for their health and that of our guests.
  • Real Time Information: Our management team is on standby 24/7 to support the hotel and coordinate with local and regional authorities.
  • Guest Rooms: We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items.
  • Reduced paper amenities (like pads and guest directories) in rooms
  • Public Spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the counter at the front desk, handrails, door handles, public bathrooms, fitness center, and room keys.
  • Back of House: In the spaces where our teams work “behind the scenes,” we are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like employee entrances, bathrooms, laundry rooms and staff offices.

We have activated our local response teams to provide around-the-clock assistance to act swiftly should we be alerted to a case of corona virus at the property.
