The Welsh Government has published further details for the hospitality industry ahead of a phased re-opening of the sector.
The guide can be found here: Guidance for Tourism and Hospitality businesses.
As each premises is different, businesses should read all guidance to understand the measures to be considered to re-open the business safely.
The following additional measures are intended to provide further advice for self-contained accommodation businesses and must be considered in line with the UKHospitality Wales Guidance and the Guidance for Tourism and Hospitality.
Businesses should also consider, where appropriate:
- Strengthening their policy on safe disposal of face coverings for staff and visitors
- Introducing measures for staff and visitors, on arrival, such as taking temperature tests, asking people to sanitise their hands and asking questions around whether they are displaying any symptoms.
- Considering the flow of guests/visitors and how to avoid any household mixing by keeping guests/visitors apart as they move around the premises throughout their visit/stay, with particular regard to enclosed public areas such as lifts, stairs and corridors
- Instructing guests/visitors to move through enclosed public areas as quickly as possible, and to avoid shouting or singing in such areas
- Within accommodation, ensuring that guests keep the doors to their rooms closed at all times, apart from when entering and leaving.
- Staggering room service/laundry delivery etc to rooms, to avoid guests opening doors and coming out at the same time.
- Reviewing their incident and emergency procedures to ensure they reflect the physical distancing principles as far as possible, including considering how to minimise household-mixing when congregating in fire assembly areas.
