Dear Evergreen Valley Owners and Guests
Your health, welfare and safety are paramount when you stay at Evergreen Valley Resort. Noting that the news is dominated by Coronavirus, we wanted to personally reach out and let you know that we have implemented increased guest room and common area cleaning protocols and processes.
We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we meet our guest needs while doing our part to keep you, our associates, and our communities safe.
Here are some highlights:
• We have enhanced techniques used to clean guest rooms after each stay. We are paying particular attention to high touch point areas, to include keys, public area computer, door handles, locks and latches, light switches, desk surfaces, telephones, television remote controls, and bathroom fixture handles.
• Evergreen will be heightening sanitizing attention to all the common areas.
In addition, we are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our staff. This includes:
• If they are not feeling well or an immediate family member is not feeling well, we ask that they stay home to avoid passing it to others.
• Keep their hands clean and wash their hands properly. We ask that they use hand sanitizer whenever possible.
• Regularly wiping down and sanitizing their workspace.
• Maintain a healthy lifestyle (proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep their immune system strong.
• Importantly, if they have flu-like symptoms, they are advised to consult a doctor and seek medical care.
If you have an existing reservation, we look forward to seeing you and want to reassure you that we are taking every reasonable precaution to promote a safe and healthy environment.
Your health and well-being are our highest priority and we truly appreciate the trust that you place in us when you choose to stay at Evergreen Valley Resort.
