BSAFE: A Look Into Beauport Hotel Gloucester's Health and Safety Initiatives

At Beauport Hotel Gloucester, we hold the health and safety of our guests and staff above anything else. When the pandemic hit in 2020, we studied the guidelines from the CDC, WHO, American Hotel & Lodging Association, and both State and local health officials to create our BSAFE Beauport Commitment to Health & Safety. We are proud to say that our BSAFE approach is effective and adheres with keeping top-notch quality service to our guests.

All of these guidelines are kept up by our outstanding staff. Each employee follows strict guidelines while in the workplace:
 
  • Undergone mandatory COVID-19 safety and prevention training
  • Completed health screenings before each shift after arriving through a staff-only entrance
  • Adhere to hygiene standards of hand washing, sanitation, and disinfecting
  • Precautions in team member offices and work areas will include:
    • Spaced workstations
    • Occupancy limits
    • Remote work arrangements when appropriate
    • A strict understanding that transparency is key and must let their manager know if they have traveled to a location with a COVID-19 hotspot or is exposed, and at that time will be required to quarantine for 14 days and provide a negative test result before returning to work.

We are grateful for our guests and staff for following the BSAFE Beauport Commitment to Health and Safety in these uncertain times. We vow to keep these protocols active throughout the coming seasons and look forward to seeing you at Beauport Hotel Gloucester.
