Enhanced Cleaning Protocols
Common AreasSaratoga Oaks Lodge has recommended aggressive sanitation and cleaning steps system-wide, using EPA approved products that kill COVID-19. Enhanced protocols include additional sanitation of those vital, high-touch points in common areas that impact guests and employees. Up to four times per day, housekeepers are sanitizing exterior and corridor touchpoints as well as common areas including laundry rooms, front desks, maintenance rooms, storage door handles, stairwell handrails, and trash receptacles and trash carts.
In-roomThe cleaning and sanitization of all guest rooms is our top priority. We are asking hotel staff to be extra diligent in sanitizing guest rooms including TVs, remote controls, tables, doorknobs, light switches, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. The frequency of room cleaning during a guest's stay may be altered based on guest requirements. We recommend that linens, towels, and laundry are washed in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. Dirty linen should be bagged in the guest room to eliminate excess contact while being transported to the laundry facility.
Face CoveringsThe Saratoga Oaks Lodge has created lobby signs instructing guests to wear a face-covering in public spaces following government requirements.
