Life will not be the same after COVID 19 and neither will hotels. If you are an impatient traveler who is waiting for the day when travel and tourism will reopen, you should know that you may find some surprises in the hotels.
Hotels and restaurants have to adapt to a new world, like all of us. And in that world there are two or three words that are very important: social distancing, disinfection, safe transfers.
These are some of the novelties you will find in hotels once lockdowns are lifted:
It will be marked in the common spaces such as elevators or dining rooms. Also in the swimming pools. Staggered schedules to use the gym, for example, will be frequent. Yellow lines to mark the recommended distances.
Disinfection and cleaning
The cleaning measures will have to be extreme. This may involve the use of masks, large amounts of soap and alcohol-based sanitizers everywhere, and gloves on some occasions. Special disinfection measures may be taken for children.
The use of public transport may be reduced, depending on the area, in order to prevent the sharing of crowds and possible contagion. New forms of transport may emerge, including increased use of bicycles, electronic skates or special transport organized by hotels.
