The pandemic has affected the entire world, and every country has taken different measures to combat the effects of the pandemic has substantially changed our lives for the past months. During the lockdown, we all drastically missed our freedom – and even more the freedom to travel. But easing around the globe is slowly beginning with the prospect of resuming, reasonable normality once again. Every country and region has adopted its own specific ways to best deal with improvement strategies after the pandemic outbreak.
We are all individually looking forward to a break and a change of scenery from the quarantine. With the joy of being able to reopen hotels, the governments have imposed policies and many safety regulations. Hotels are now complying and adapting to the regulations in place while also being concerned about offering the highest service standards and experiences.The only measure in place that will be standardized everywhere, is that guests are entrusted with the new regulations at check-in and must ensure compliance with a signature.Saunas are still closed, and there are different procedures for the use of the pools. The requirements are either being enrolled on a list, that defines how long you can use the pool – or pools are controlled and supervised by tenants that ensure that every guest has a 6m2 of pool space between them available. All employees wear masks in all areas of the hotel. Guests are required to wear masks in the lobby and public areas. While in restaurants and the rooms the wearing of a mask can be excluded.
The hardest thing about this pandemic is, there is no predicting when and whether it will end. But fears and worries won‘t get us anywhere. We have to get back to our lives before this outbreak, to enjoy and create special moments and allow our passions to soar once again. We may still see setbacks here and there, and probably we will experience life differently than before the COVID-19 pandemic.
