HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL
After thorough review of all existing health and safety processes, we have developed and put in place a health and safety protocol that must be respected by all guests and team members. All steps of this protocol are important to reduce the spread of infection of COVID-19. We have done our utmost to reduce the number of touchpoints throughout your stay. Our Team members have been educated about our new standard operating procedures through extensive training. They are aware of new risk analyses for their job and work environment, and we have set up continuous follow-up trainings for them with increased focus on the importance of good hygiene. Our in-house prevention officer has been fully trained as hygiene & safety specialist. If a guest or staff develops symptoms indicative of COVID-19, a detailed plan is put in place to handle this situation and to minimize contact of the ill person with all guests and staff of the hotel.
COVID SAFE TICKET
In accordance with current federal government COVID regulations, Hotel Hubert will be using the COVID SAFE TICKET, which is mandatory for:
- Indoor events for 50 people or more or any event with catering services.
- Food and beverage services such as the foodtruck, the bar and the coffee tea station.
- Entrance to the fitness room.
In order to gain access to the above spaces, each guest must have a Covid Safe Ticket. Children under 12 years old are exempt from having to present a Covid Safe Ticket. Check the different possibilities to obtain your certificate on www.covidsafe.be
We have reinforced our cleaning procedures of rooms with a special attention to any surfaces frequently touched by guests and team members, including regular disinfection of door handles and all other steel/metal and plastic items and surfaces. All linen used in our rooms is treated by an external company and washed properly, as always, in hot cycles (70°C or more) in order to disinfect them completely. The phones in the rooms are still available for guest to use and are disinfected regularly, however we encourage the use of your own mobile devices. Guests will be informed upon arrival of any useful number during their stay. These numbers will now also be reachable through messenger applications such as WhatsApp.
Guests are asked not to hold (private) meetings in their rooms, with other guests or with people not residing in the hotel.
Hotel Hubert is a cash-free hotel and we encourage people to pay through contactless payment methods where possible. At the moment of check-in, full pre-payment of your stay is requested and all consumption is paid on the spot throughout your stay. Express check-out is encouraged. Invoices will be sent per e-mail only.
B. Public Areas
Special consideration is being given to the cleaning of common areas (halls, corridors, lifts, express check-out boxes, etc.) and to objects that are frequently touched (handles, elevator buttons, handrails, switches, door knobs, etc.). High touch surfaces at the front desk such as the payment terminal and desks are disinfected between guests.
Contactless disinfection gel distributors have been put in place at the building entrance and in strategic places throughout the hotel.
In the lobby floor markings determine a ‘safe-zone’, accessible to team members only, and indicate the secure distance that guests need to abide by while waiting in line. Protective shields made out of Plexiglas have been installed on the desks to protect both staff and guest from infection.
