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. Our Commitment to Cleanliness: Nubia Cleanliness committee Nubia recently announced the creation of Cleanliness committee– consisting of in-house and outside experts in food and water safety, hygiene and infection prevention, and hotel operations. Together, the committee members will work to develop a new generation of global hospitality cleanliness standards, The new standards will be designed to minimize risk and enhance safety for the Nubia’s guests. New Cleaning Technologies While Nubia’s develops its work, the company has initiated plans to roll out enhanced technologies at its properties over the next few months, In its everyday cleaning, Nubia will also be using the highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization to treat known pathogens. Cleaning Regimen Changes When guests check into Nubia’s hotel over the next few months, they will notice a number of additions to the company’s regimen designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness for the hotels. Specific areas of focus include: Surface Areas: In public spaces, the company has added to its already rigorous cleaning protocols, requiring that surfaces are treated with hospital-grade disinfectants and that this cleaning is done with increased frequency. In guest rooms, Nubia has added to its detailed cleaning practices, requiring all surfaces to be thoroughly cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants. Guest Contact: To help alleviate the risk of COVID-19 transmission through person-to-person contact, Nubia will be using signage in its lobbies to remind guests to maintain social distancing protocols and will remove or re-arrange furniture to allow more space for distancing. The company is planning to add partitions at front desks to provide an extra level of precaution for its guests and associates and is working with supply chain partners to make masks and gloves available to associates. You’ll see more hand sanitizing stations around Nubia’s hotel – near the entrances and front desks, elevator banks and fitness and meeting spaces. Food Safety: At Nubia, food handlers and supervisors are trained on safe food preparation and service practices. The company’s food and beverage operations are required to conduct self-inspection using its food safety standards as guidelines, and compliance is validated by independent audits. Nubia is also enhancing sanitation guidelines and training videos for associates that include hygiene and disinfecting practices.
