- Have all staff pass a health check prior to each shift.
- Ensure staff wear face masks if they can’t be six feet apart.
- Train staff in proper cleaning and sanitization specific to our industry.
- Implement sanitization practices for common areas, bathrooms, and high-touch surfaces, using the Centers for Disease Control recommendations.
- Provide hand sanitizer or hand-washing stations at all entrances.
- Post the Hoosier Hospitality Promise at entrances.
