Radisson has consistently offered top-tier flexibility for guests throughout the crisis though since May. However, the brand rolled out its Radisson Safety Protocol in May 2020 – a global commitment to cleanliness and hygiene. And while the Radisson Fort George Hotel & Marina in Belize City is now recognized as a Gold Standard Hotel as of August 2020, here’s how they’re going above their certification, including their SGS Certification and a block on guest arrivals for 72 hours between room stays.
72 HOURS BETWEEN GUEST STAYS
With knowing cleanliness is a defining factor in post-coronavirus guest confidence, Belize’s Radisson Ft. George Hotel & Marina opts to automatically block reservations for 72 hours (or more) between stays. At check-out, Radisson cleans your room – in accordance to BTB’s Enhanced Health & Safety Guidelines for Tourism – before blocking it off for absolutely no entry for at least 72 hours. According to studies, the COVID-19 virus can survive on certain surfaces for up to three days; besides a thorough and deep cleaning with CDC-approved products, Radisson implements the 72 hour block as an added security feature. The fewer the virus particles on a surface, the lower the chances that someone touching it will become infected. “You have to get a certain level of virus exposure to be infected,” said Ross McKinney, chief scientific officer of the American Association of Medical Colleges.
INDEPENDENTLY SGS CERTIFIED
Additionally, Radisson Fort George Hotel & Marina is proud to announce the successful completion of the SGS Cleaning and Disinfection Remote Assessment. This independent health and safety assessment ensures that Radisson Belize has implemented all measures outlined in the Radisson Hotel Group’s global Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol in partnership with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. The Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol outlines in-depth cleanliness and disinfection procedures alongside enhanced protocols, operational guidance and validation process; this ensures the safety of guests, team members and partners as one of their highest priorities.
“We are pleased SGS has [been] certified full compliance; with all the health, safety, and disinfection protocols as outlined in the Radisson Hotels Safety Protocol. This is including a 20-step protocol and a 10-step protocol specifically defined for Meetings & Events.”
– Mrs. Sandra Grisham-Clothier, the General Manager of Radisson Fort George Hotel & Marina in Belize
