The Dockside Cottages COVID 19 Cleaning, Disinfecting and Safety Protocol
The safety and well-being of our guests and the team members who help make The Dockside Cottages operate smoothly, efficiently and hospitably are of utmost importance.
UPDATED: April 11, 2020, July 5, 2020, August 29,2021
Regarding our cleaning and disinfecting protocol, we are closely monitoring and implementing the guidelines for safety and prevention of the spread of COVID 19 and COVID-19 variants, including the use of EPA Registered Disinfectants that are defined as acceptable and effective for cleaning and disinfecting various surface types.
In order to expand upon those protocols to ensure an additional layer of protection for our guests and The Dockside Cottages team, we have implemented three (3) specific unique additional procedures, which we refer to as The 3UP:
UP No. 1 – Team members will not enter any occupied guest room for the duration of a guests’ stay, except in an emergency situation or violation of policies.
UP No. 2 – We will continue to provide such required items as bed and bath linens, toilet tissue, bath and hand soap. We will also continue to provide such additional amenities as coffee, coffee cups, cups, shampoo, cream rinse, razors . . etc – all of which will be place in guest rooms upon being cleaned and disinfected, using safety protocols.
UP No. 3 – For the safety and well-being of our team members, we ask that all guests do the following, at the conclusion of your stay and upon departure, which will help ensure the safety of The Dockside Cottages team members:
- Hang all used and/or wet/damp bath linens, so that they can air dry.
- Bring all guestroom and bathroom debris and refuse (including used coffee pods and filter packs, cups, etc…) out of the guest room and place the trash bags next to the entrance door.
- Turn off AC/Heat, turn off coffee maker and flush toilet.
We’re all in this together, and your cooperation along with our efforts will help ensure the safety and well-being of all!
