The following are the 10 Common safety and additional hygiene measures being implemented across the Irish tourism industry:
Plexiglass shielding screens
Screens installed in areas where the minimum distance can’t be guaranteed – i.e. reception areas.
Staff COVID-19 training
All staff are trained according to the most up to date Covid-19 safety and hygiene measures.
Additional cleaning & disinfection measures
Hospital-grade specialised cleaning carried out regularly. Common areas, toilets and most-touched surfaces, such as table-tops, handrails, light switches, door handles, etc. will be disinfected frequently.
Reduced capacity in accommodation, attractions, venues, and coaching is in place to meet the 2-metre social distancing guidelines that are in place at present.
2M Social distancing
Visitors will have to respect 2 metres physical distancing from non-household/group members. Floor signage will also be in place to promote this social distancing, especially in areas where people queue, or to encourage a one-way system.
Hand sanitiser stations
Available throughout, especially at entry and exit points, and reception areas.
Special COVID-19 signage
Regularly updated information signs showing the latest COVID-19 hygiene rules to respect.
Face masks are now mandatory on all public/private transport, shops, supermarkets, museums and visitor attractions. They must also be worn on entry; exit and when leaving your seated area in restaurants and pubs. CGH recommends for all group members to always have facemasks with them.
Card/contactless payments are advised as much as possible.
All businesses will require guest contact details. These will need to save for one month in case they need to contact you regarding a case of COVID-19.
