Dear friends of the President Hotel,
In light of the challenges that the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is placing upon all of us, we encourage you to not cancel, but postpone and keep tourism alive!
At The President, we value the wellbeing of our staff and guests. To mitigate the spread of Covid-19 additional health and safety measures have been taken to ensure optimum health and reduce human contact.
Upon entering the property, a daily welfare check is conducted that includes compulsory hand sanitization and a routine temperature check. Over 40 additional sanitizing dispensers have been installed at key public points, allowing for regular hand sanitization around the property. Further:
- Operational teams receive daily training and updated industry best practice
- The kitchen staff have moved to 15 minute repeated hand sanitisation
- All food products are sanitised on arrival at the President
- Social distancing is encouraged with handshakes on hold
- Administrative staff are working remotely and by the end of this week over 60 staff will work from The President’s virtual office
The President has appointed a dedicated Health Manager who is on call to ensure best practices are implemented across our hotel and amongst all our staff.
Hand sanitation is encouraged upon arrival, with dispensers strategically placed at check-in as well as numerous public spaces. Similarly, dispensers have been installed at the buffet area encouraging guests to be “Virus wise, sanitize” before assisting themselves to food.
In the event of a symptomatic guest, our dedicated Health Manager is available 24/ 7 via mobile or email to provide assistance, with a full quarantine procedure in place. Rooms are routinely deep cleaned upon check-out applying global best sanitation practices.
During this time, we are encouraging staff and guests alike to be mindful of their wellbeing and the health of those around them, by following the recommendations as set out by National authorities and the World Health Organisation.
We fully support local and national governments decisions on the matter thus far and will continue supporting all measures possible to flatten the curve and save lives.
Our thoughts are with you and your families as you navigate this challenging time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can be of further assistance, or if you have specific bookings you wish to discuss. We are in this together and hope that we emerge stronger, once this uncertain time passes.
Executive Director, The President Hotel
